    So, when Karlsson outscores Doughty by 31 (!!!) points, his defensive game isn't good enough and Doughty wins. Karlsson comes back and has a spectacular defensive season, but the guy who outscores him by five points (in five extra games) wins the Norris.

    Something seems wrong.

      I'm beyond upset. Even if one disregarded the terrible optics you've pointed out, Karlsson deserved it on merit alone - both this season and last.

        Want to be even more pissed - 7 voters voted him 4th and 5th D in the league. Someone voted 1st for Weber..and someone voted a 2nd place for Krug. Let all that sink in for a moment.

              I'd also heard there were two ballots received where Karlsson wasn't even in the top 5. Let that sink in for a second.

                At this point I believe there's some conspiracy to make sure Karlsson never surpasses Lidstrom in terms of Norris trophies lol. That's two years in a row now.

                  I'm not big into conspiracies but there has to be something fishy going on when two voters leave him off their ballot. You can look at his play, and his stats, and come to the conclusion there were five better players at his position this year?

                  Maybe you're right. Lidstrom won seven of them. If Karlsson wasn't screwed over, he'd have four. If he wasn't injured, he could have even more.

                    NHL awards are a joke mostly. Why do just media vote? I get giving media a say, but they should be split between media and actual hockey people. Maybe 25% players, 25% coaches and managers, 25% analytics people, and 25% media.

                      That would be an excellent idea!
