Debate: Who Will Win the Hart Trophy?

Steven Stamkos – Tampa Bay Lightning

This kid is great. No other words can describe him. 60 goals – first in the NHL. 97 points – second in the NHL.

Stamkos is also a staple on the power play, scoring 12 goals and 25 points. On a team with some aging veterans and goaltending problems, Stamkos is becoming a well rounded player.

He backchecks well, and is not a liability in his own end most times. He is great in the clutch, notching 12 game winning goals.

He also finished third in shots with 303 in a full 82 games. I fully expect him to continue on a pace of 50-60 goals per season as long as he stays healthy, and wear the ‘C’ very soon for the Lightening.
