(Ed. Note: This is a weekly feature on Puck Daddy in which we vote on the major NHL Awards. “We” being Wyshynski, Leahy, Mooney, Yahoo! NHL editor Sam McCaig and Yahoo! NHL scribe Nick Cotsonika. Voting is completed Monday night. The results will run every Tuesday on this very blog. Enjoy.)
Injuries can sometimes recast how one feels about awards candidates.
Henrik Sedin won the Hart in 2010 partially because of his play with Daniel Sedin injured, for example.
Do we think less of Craig Anderson when we see the Ottawa Senators not missing a beat in his absence? To that end: Do we think more of Paul MacLean when he’s leading an injured team than when that team’s healthy?
Do we think more of Sidney Crosby when he’s carrying the Penguins sans Evgeni Malkin?
Coming up, the latest NHL Awards Watch from Puck Daddy, in which Sid pushes for Hart and one of this teammates makes a surprise appearance at the top of an awards ranking.
