As far as "skill" as a dman, he's not all that good but neither are the others. This is a weird category.
I agree that Chara might as well be in the mix. Yeah, he didn't fight much at all this season, but is usually a force when he does drop em'. Almost like Scott of last year....not many takers, but won when there was an opportunity.
As for this year, Deryk Engelland
got my vote. The kid can obviously throw em' and isn't too bad of a player/dman. I agree that this category needs some tweaking regarding exactly what the "Stevens" award criteria is. Like the idea, though...
