Probably. He was absurdly productive early on and built up that campaign momentum. I just recall seeing enough Josi headlines later on that I think he might catch up, particularly with his defensive reputation. I know a lot of times when people complain about the award, they lament that it's simply become the best offensive defenseman. To that end the nominees are the top 3 point producing defenseman this year. While I'd like the Norris winner to not be a liability in his own end, I don't think a crazy productive offensive season should be overlooked. For instance the year Mike Green scored 31 goals in 68 games but still finished second to Chara is a tough one for me. Maybe the pendulum has swung too far the other way now. I don't know I'm rambling. In conclusion, hockey is good.NHLTIM wrote: ↑Mon Jul 20, 2020 2:36 pmI know his production tailed off but I think Carlson wins the Norris hands down.Dave's a mess wrote: ↑Mon Jul 20, 2020 12:04 pmSome awards news today:
I've seen some surprise from local media that Petro didn't get nominated. I thought he'd miss out, but finish top 5 based on what the award has become. I think Josi or Carlson take it home this year. Josi would get my vote out of those 3.
...but whatever, the Blues won the Cup!!!!!
