    This is how the PHWA sees the race at this point.

    Let’s give it a little more time, but I’m surprised so far.

    101-11 doesn’t seem close. Seems like one player is on a different level, actually

    Thats not really how it works, though. I think everyone agrees that Makar is having a better rookie season than Hughes, but where opinions vary is in how much better its been. Even if everyone agreed that Makar was only better than Hughes by the slimmest of margins, everyone would still agree that he's better. That doesn't put him in an entirely different echelon.

    Not mad but surprised Hughes isn't on the list considering he is actually better than Boeser

    If they were that close, there would be more disagreements.

    I think it's telling what Avs fans voted for versus fans of the East who probably haven't watched an Avs game all year. And of course Vancouver fans who try to downplay Makar :laugh:

    Multiple Norrises???
    Looks like some Avs fans have caught the TML Austin Matthews disease of generational goal scorer.

    I'm certainly not the only one, many hockey people have said the same thing.

    Yeah. The old ‘many hockey people have said’ schtick. Same thing with Matthews and Leaf fans. Hold your horses and tone down the hype train a bit. :laugh:

    Yeah I’d like to see the many people who have said that as well. For the record I think both him and Hughes may eventually get a Norris but there are lots of good D in that conversation and no guarantees for either of them.

    I’m an Avs fan and I don’t think Makar is generational but I think Matthews has the potential to be a generational goal scorer. The only active player with a higher goals/game is Ovechkin. Matthews is even ahead of Stamkos.

    Oh I agree he has a chance. But I’d wait until he wins at least a Rocket. And don’t forget a generation includes a lot of future players who have not even been drafted.

    True. So how about juolevi, gaudette and myers for Cale? Quantity over quality every time.

    "and you might even find it on the Norris trophy a couple of times" He seems to have high confidence in that, not even "I think" but just "you might"

    While I'm surprised by the outcome, the numbers have continued to twist back the other direction in the poll. One more day before I bite my tongue.

    I've watched Makar plenty. He's one of my favorite players in the league. He did have a rough outing against my Rangers though...

    So might even find it on the Norris a couple of times means they think he is likely going to win multiple Norrises? I think he’s saying it could happen but he’s not saying it’s likely.
    I think both Hughes and Makar could if they hit their potential win a Norris. Its far from certain though as there are a lot of great D who never win it or only win once. Neither Makar or Hughes are there yet.
    You have to take some of the hype you read on prospects and young players with a large grain of salt. Publications like to get hits and fans get excited about the young players especially the ones with lots of potential. Let’s wait until they at least play a couple of years before we start talking about a Norris.
