2010 PSW Hart Trophy

June 16th 2011 14:48
For me, choosing the player who should get the Hart Trophy was a difficult task for me because there were two guys in the thick of it. Daniel Sedin and Corey Perry were absolutely vital to their respective teams' success this season, and it was difficult to choose between the two. By the way, there may be more typos than usual in this post as I am typing this with a severely sprained finger that literally turned blue. It's basketball related, but nobody really cares about that. What we do care about is some good hockey discussion.

Vancouver Canucks LW Daniel Sedin

This award has nothing to do with the playoffs, so forget about how good Sedin was in the postseason even if his team fell short. I was about to recap that game, but I decided not to. I will, however, write an article up in the near future about criticism directed at Roberto Luongo.

Anyway, Sedin led the league with 104 points scored, was tied for 4th with 41 goals, and had the 3rd most assists in 2010. Those are great overall numbers, and they are certainly worth an MVP case. Sedin is an important leader, and his teammates feed off of him in a unique way. It takes a lot to gain the respect from other talented teammates.

Daniel and his twin Henrik form by far the most formidable 1-2 punch in the NHL. Their chemistry and talent go together hand in hand, and that's no surprise at all. Sedin isn't an aggressive player, but he's a solid defensive player in the zone. Henrik is mainly a great passer of the puck with incredible vision and dribbling ability. Daniel isn't as good of a passer- he can still pass the puck really well- but he is a better scorer than his twin.

Daniel Sedin was second in goals created, first in Power Play goals, tied for second in game-winning goals, had the highest offensive point shares, and he also had the highest point shares of all skaters. Those are MVP numbers, and and those numbers as well as his beautiful and fluid play are the two main reasons why I have Daniel Sedin as my Hart Memorial winner just above the also excellent Corey Perry.

I didn't see any typos. Good job. Haha. Daniel Sedin deserves this trophy. He did quite a bit for the Canucks. Sad to see them lose and all the rioting happen.

Thanks for always commenting man, I really appreciate it. The riots are just pathetic. I know that the fans in Canada, especially Vancouver, put a lot into their hockey teams. Their fans were once again disappointed that their regular season success did not allow them to have a championship. But you can never do something like this over a game. They should be happy they made it this far, and they do have a right to be angry over losing. They definitely crossed the line here, and it's an embarrassment to their city, to NHL fans, to the Canucks, to Canucks fans, and to sports and fans of any sport.
