McDavid getting 100 unanimous votes for 1st I get.  I certainly understand Matthews getting 69 2nd place votes because you can make arguments for other guys being most valuable to their team....two people didn't even vote him top 5?

Man the angry at Marner crowd is out in force.  I'm not a huge fan of his PR game but how are people not understanding that he's a phenomenal regular season player who hasn't produced in big playoff games.  Also it seems like forward positions shouldn't be locked in by position when you don't do that for defensemen?

There's always a few voters who basically say "screw it, I'm going to vote for the guys I like instead of the guys that deserve it most" for their 2nd place and lower votes. Honestly, I'm surprised McDavid got all the 1st place votes (even though he definitely deserved them). I was sure someone would put him 2nd or something as a protest/refusing to allow unanimous decisions type vote.

Leading scorer among defencemen didn't receive a single Norris vote. I wonder if that's ever happened before.

edit:


Wow.

I mean, they're not wrong. He still wasn't great defensively. Natural Stat Trick has his xGF%, SCF%, and HDCF% all sitting around 50% - which, considering who he was often out on the ice with, isn't great.
