The Pens are on a great run and with Sid set to return soon, they have a good chance to go deep into the playoffs and contend for the Cup. Malkin has always been one of my favorite players and I hope he wins the Hart this year. He deserves it.
Statistically, the Red Wings assess our context differently. We look for 3 or 4 two-way forwards scoring 20+ goals and 30+ assists, solid offensive contribution from the blueline, solid goaltending, and lots of guys at the top of the +/- category. We look for overlooked players in the low rounds who can fit into this particular scheme of things, and polish them into two-way gems like Nick, Pasha and Hank.
"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
