    Is there any article, or series of articles, that are looking to this?

    Who decided to introduce the first ever Trophy, if there were any other alternative Trophy names, why do the guys have now 5 votes and not only one...

    1) We have the same data on this very board. Check out the sticky. Apparently Hockey Reference even copied the data from us.

    2) I don't think the OP is asking for voting results. It apprars he's looking for the history of the trophies and how and why the voting format changed over time.

    Bingo.

    And other question that jumped out. Is there any financial bonus joined? Sure, by contract negotiations they could use this as a strong point. But is there some reward direct from NHL. Or from sponsors?

    Re: bonuses. Part of entry-level contracts (and other, less frequent scenarios):

    Bonus for any trophy, not to exceed $250,000.

    I don't recall if there's a cash prize for winning the Hart or other awards, like there is for advancing in the playoffs, etc.

    I know there used to be. Like really small amounts. 20k, 10k, 5k, etc. depending on placement.
