03:53 PM ET 04.18 | It appears as though the 2013 Norris Trophy race has been dwindled down to P.K. Subban and Ryan Suter. With the regular season nearing a close, discussions are starting to heat up about individual awards. Many believe that the Norris will come down to a debate of Subban's production versus Suter's minutes. Subban leads all defensemen in points (36) and goals (11). He is third in assists (25), which Suter ranks second in (28). The biggest point of contention seems to be that Suter eats up the most average minutes per game of any blueliner in the league. Subban is ranked 41st. Is this a strong enough reason for Suter to win over Subban? What do you think?

Over his 20 NHL seasons, Lidstr??m won four Stanley Cups, seven James Norris Memorial Trophies as the NHL's top defensive player, one Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP, and has been voted into twelve NHL All-Star Games. And you dare say them in the same breath.

It's well known that when a player gets all those minutes it's because they have no one else they trust.

Nobody but Boston or Chara deserve anything. Everything else is merely good timing.

We should know that by now....
