I find it shocking very few think Henrik Sedin doesn’t deserve the Hart Trophy.
No, he does not have nearly as many goals as Sid Crosby or Alex Ovechkin and, no, he hasn’t taken a shot in the shootout, but he is the NHL points leader.
He is a catalyst for more goals than anyone else in the NHL. Goals aren’t everything. Someone who can create chances for other players is just as important as the ones scoring on those chances.
Give Henrik the respect he has earned. He is this year’s best player. If anyone else wins the Hart (except Ovechkin, maybe) it’ll be a huge disappointment.
