No Surprise

The NHL announced today that Alex Ovechkin is among the three finalists for the NHL’s Hart Trophy, awarded annually to the league’s most valuable player. Ovechkin has already claimed the 2008 Art Ross and Maurice Richard Trophies, and is a likely finalist for the Lester Pearson Award as well.

Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin and Calgary’s Jarome Iginla are the other Hart finalists. Ovechkin would be the first member of the Capitals to win the Hart, just as he was the first Cap to claim the Ross and Richard Trophies.

The winner of the Hart Trophy and all the other 2008 NHL award and trophy recipients will be announced Thursday, June 12 at the 2008 NHL Awards Television Special from the Elgin Theatre in Toronto.

    I has to be OV all the way. We will find out if the voting is rigged or not.

    I’d be extremely disappointed and suspicious if it is anyone besides Ovie. Malkin is a really good talent as well as Inginla. Neither was as instrumental to the teams success as Ovie was to the Caps and had the most goals and points in the season.

    I would say Alex is going to win it. The three finalists are the obvious choices and in a normal year, any of them would win in a runaway, but all three players had outstanding seasons and will be recognized for it.

    I know this is the first of many for Alex, but I do hope that Jarome Iginla does win it once in his career. He’s a warrior in every sense of the word and deserves an honor like this (I also hope he wins a Cup one year…but not against the Caps!)
