    He and Karlsson sure do their best to allow the team to play with the puck as much as possible. The way they both read the play is so incredible valuable.

    This isn't even something that should be considered a long shot. Assuming the team in general keeps improving, his numbers should only go up. The guy is a flat-out freak, and I'd say he's a top 3 player on the planet.

    That said, Karlsson can totally finish top 5 in points this year.

    Guilty as charged! Seeing a sea of Sens on the leaderboard makes me act like a fool.

    It was a longshot in terms of odds. 50 to 1. Let's go!!!!

    Norris was 4 to 1.

    Who was the last defenceman to win the Hart anyway? Without looking, I'd say Orr.

    I'd say Coffee/Bourque/Lidstrom -- all three played after Bobby retired.

    Bourque/Lidstrom/Coffee never won it (I can see Coffee, playing with Gretzky, but surprised Lidstrom and Bourque never won). Before Pronger, the last one was Orr.

    I have no recollection of Pronger winning it. How nice, couldn't happen to a better fellow.

    Coffee, lol.

    I could blame "Coffee" on the built-in spellchecker but I'll just blame it on only having had one coffey so far, today. And not a lot of sleep last night, either.

    Wonder what the odds were for Stone or Turris. If that line can keep it up for 82 games, look out.

    NEVER!

    Walter, you complain about lack of sleep frequently. I recommend you rectify that problem, as that'll have huge negative consequences on your health. You're welcome for the free life advice!

    For the record... I own Karlsson in my keeper league, and he's a +7 right now (or so ESPN tells me), so there should be another Sen there atop yet another list. Smile
