07:25 AM ET 06.18 | Every year, there are head-scratchers -- this time around including for the Hart Trophy. [This] was another instance where the vote was close enough that some of the weird choices could have made a tangible difference. Alex Ovechkin beat out Sidney Crosby by only 32 points in one of the closest votes in history, meaning another half dozen votes one way or the other could have meant for a different winner. Some of those went to what are decidedly complementary players -- Chris Kunitz (five points) and Pascal Dupuis (one point) -- or those having off seasons like Evgeni Nabokov (five points), Backstrom and Price (three each). Anyone, anywhere, would be hard pressed to argue any of those five were among the top five most valuable players in the league.

No, Tavares was robbed.

Crosby missed 1/4 of the season with a busted face and Ovechkin missed 1/4 of the season with a busted ego.

I think they misspelled heart (super tweak)

I think it was Toews who got robbed. Not even a finalist?

Let the bashing begin.

Ovie getting the Hart was a joke. Other than that, don't care who got it.

I think the award Crosby got this year says enough and from people who matter.

1) to be recogised by your peers is a great award, so agree about Sid getting this one
2) Taveres was robbed I thought also
3) I think Ovie had a fine season, it's not like they gave it to Clutterbuck or something, let's be fair

this is right up there with the "and such as' answer
but asking a pageant contestant about societal inequality between men and women may be the very definition of ironic

Joke might have been harsh. Compared to others who have should have gotten as stated above, yes, I stand behind my statement. I don't argue w/o his late effort they would not have gotten in the playoffs, etc. However, again, late effort.

Nobody got "robbed". I personally would have voted for Tavares. Did Ovie deserve it? Sure. The Caps finish out of the playoffs without him. Did Sid deserve it? Sure. Did Tavares? Absolutely? Does anybody care who won? I don't know but I sure don't. I'd rather still be playing. This is meaningless babble if you're not in the Finals.

LOL - Which reminds me we don't have a Coyote thread today.

"Was Crosby robbed of Hart?"

Well, it must've happened during the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs because he didn't have one during the Eastern Conference Finals. :-)

I agree. Shameful, really.

Ah, but he was nominated for the Whiner Of The Year Award.
