    Another reminder that the Hart isn’t a “good player on good team award”. They typically win the MVP because they dragged their team into the playoffs.

    that’s still not a reason to change the voting.

    They are regular season awards, they should vote before any playoff games are played.

    because not all players/teams make the playoffs, therefore it wouldnt be fair. This goes for all sports.

    well think of it this way, if they changed it to include playoffs, overrated guys like Matthews & McDavid wouldn't be able to win jack....

    No. They're not playoff awards.

    I think they should stay the way they are until the league changes how the rules are called in the playoffs. It's a completely different game, reg season vs. playoffs. I hope one day they can fix the problem of "playoff rules" and call rules as rules, or remove them as rules. And I say this as someone who watched Connor McDavid get no calls in a series where he probably should have gotten lots. Once that happens, and the game is actually the same, some of them could include playoffs. Also make a damn Bobby Orr trophy and make that the best defenseman and let the Norris be the scoring defenseman award (not saying that in regards to this year, where I think Adam Fox is a really good candidate).

    I would like them to change the Hart rule of "must be a playoff team player" also. You didn't mention that but the "playoffs" thing made me remember that.

    Because we know everyone else is shit. Didn't win cup? Didn't want it enough or weren't good enough when it mattered. End of.

    No. The season is where all players have a chance at the awards and the cream rises to the top based on more games. The playoffs shut the door on half the teams. Also anyone can get hot over 16-20 games. Too small of a sample size.
