With Bergeron set to miss time with a broken foot, who is the favorite to take home the Selke?
I think it's Kopitar's to lose right now.
Don't know why Barkov is an option he's nowhere near Selke-level.
You're right, he is selke level, not near it.
I would recommend not wasting your time on IPS
When you look at the numbers Kopitar is not near Selke level compared to Couturier...
Bergeron or Kopitar. I'm gonna say Kopitar. Can you imagine how dreadful the Kings would be without him?
Definitely more of a vote spread, but I would still expect Bergeron.
If it's a 2 or 3 week injury, still Bergeron. If it's anything more than that, Kopitar.
should be Barkov
It's funny because by the eye test and offensive numbers he's absolutely slaughtering it this season, especially given the extra attention he got from other teams with Carter out for most of the year. Dude has a 24-point lead on 2nd in scoring on the team (Brown, Doughty) but he's doing that while playing all the hardest minutes. If you watch him, he's playing defense just like he did his Selke year, maybe even more so, because of the relative absence of support, but vs. the other candidates, his advanced stats are relatively unremarkable.
Barkov should win it. What a talent!
If you care about stats then it's Couturier.
If you don't care about stats, then why are you even here?
Barkov is HF darling, he's nowhere near Couturier or Kopitar
Looking at the numbers Couturier is just as good as Bergeron, head and shoulders above Barkov and Kopitar
The only person that rivals Couts numbers this year is Bergeron. If Bergeron doesn't win it should be Couts.
If it is only 2-3 weeks then Bergeron will still win.
Kopitar doesn’t belong in the discussion this year. I’d say Bergeron but if not I’d put my money on Couts.
Why doesn’t he?
If it's 2 weeks he'll likely play 70 games, which is reasonable to still win. Once you start getting into the 60-65 territory, which is more likely, it becomes pretty unlikely I think. Gotta remember that he also missed the first 5 games of the season.
Not considering Bergeron, Couturier should win, but I think Barkov likely would win.
Barkov has zero advantage over coots. All numbers favor coots, reputation and longevity, coots. And market coots. Only two players i see getting it over coots is Bergeron and Kopitar, the latter only because reputation
I'm aware that Couturier should win it, I just think Barkov has a lot of buzz around him.
