    Hart finalist for sure.
    For the tops in scoring, I prefer % above X as a measurement. For example, if Sidney Crosby is 15-20% above second, and then even wider above 5th and so on, he's been elite. If the gap in the top 10 if smaller it becomes harder to parse, I'd imagine, so you have to go by primary points, quality of linemates, etc.

    Scoring 15-20% more than second? If he scored 130pts and second was 110, I would still consider the 2nd place guy to have had an elite season.

    By this logic you can only have 1 elite player per season?

    Dman ....hard to tell because guys like Klingberg get 60 pts, but aren't Norris finalists.

    It's a subjective and perhaps arbitrary standard.
