It's good to see his peers give him the credit he deserves. It doesn't mean, though, that the sportswriters and the other powers that be in charge of the awards will give him the same credit. But trust me, it's about damned time they do.
The Lindsay trophy is voted on by the players, isn't it?

couple of things stuck me, though...
VanMassenoven getting 9%. Canucks as 1/30 make up for 3% so who are the other 2 teams that get free ride from Don VanCouver?
Tony Granato in top 5 of assistant coaches deserving full time job? like really, really? Avalanche 2004 anyone?
worst ice/best ice - anyone stuck with correlation between this and geographical latitude?
hardest players to take the puck away from - anyone stuck with the apparent correlation between the position in this rating and European provenience of the player
Howard 5th in goalie ranking... pretty high I'd say. nice to see him getting the credit though...

to be fair, it used to be deserved. As good as he has been since, not sure I'd say he's become the best playoff performer.
Can you believe we (I included) used to trash this guy for his playoff performances from 2003-2006? I remember when some Wings fans didn't like the Pavel contract, especially after no-showing when it mattered the most. Now this guy has become the best playoff performer in the league and once Z returns to usual form, the Wings will be dangerous, this time with HCA hopefully.

Lucic voted the toughest guy.
I knew you'd like that one. Plus Chara and another Bruin were 2nd and 3rd.

With the game on the line, which of these players do you want with the puck?
Pavel Datsyuk (Red Wings): 33.88 %
Evgeni Malkin (Penguins): 25.01 %
Henrik Sedin (Canucks): 11.04 %
Jonathan Toews (Blackhawks): 10.98 %
Steven Stamkos (Lightning): 10.91 %
Claude Giroux (Flyers): 8.19 %
I personally wouldn't mind any of those guys but I believe that I would pick Pav if I were a fan of a team not involved in that poll.

This one makes me so proud to be a wings fan.
