Was Alex Ovechkin robbed of the league MVP trophy?

It wasn't the only trophy he had hoped to capture Wednesday, but the NHL Players Association's most outstanding player award will have to suffice for Alex Ovechkin.

The Washington Capitals' star won the Ted Linsday Award, then was denied a third consecutive Hart Trophy by Vancouver's Henrik Sedin, who edged Ovechkin for MVP honors by six first-place votes. Read the full article.

What a load of crap! The only reason Ovie wasn't the goal AND points leader was because he played TEN fewer games than the winners, part of which was due to suspension for questionable, BS penalty.

Oh well, he's still MVP in my book. On to 2010!!!

Vancouver could have tanked when Daniel Sedin went out early with a broken foot. They could have slid quite a bit when they had the Road Trip from Hell that started before the Olympics and ended after as the arena in Vancouver was being readied for the Games. The Canucks did well in both instances, Henrik Sedin being the biggest reason why. Ovechkin is the better player, and his Lindsay Award reflects that. But Sedin was more valuable to his team, and that's what the Hart is given for.

I agree with FJC. The Caps did fine without Ovie. He wasn't the most valuable player to his team in the league.

Henrik Sedin was the Vancouver team. Ovie had a lot of help with the Caps. Without Sedin the Vancouver team would have a poor or mediocre season. Without Ovie, the Caps still would have been a good team. The result of Sedin one and Ovie two was the right result.
