Hart Trophy: There are plenty of worthy candidates as is always the case.
Our winner: Daniel Alfredsson. Determined to help his team avoid the Stanley Cup hangover, the Sens captain is playing like it's Game 7 of the championship series every night.
Do you agree with this pick at this point in the season? Have your say in our forum.
Alfredsson has Hart
I don't know of anyone that controls the game better right now than Alfredson. He logs more minutes on the PK than most all-star forwards and still a points leader.
It's nice to see from this board that the die-hard Leafers still love him....

Borje Salming was one of the great Maple Leafs of all time.
It was not only his play, but his humility that endeared him to Toronto fans.
Sure, Alfredsson is a good player, but his attitude doesn't compare to Salming's humility IMO.

The sledding will be tough for a fair assessment on Daniel Alfredsson getting a fair shake on the voting for a Hart Trophy. Whether he eventually wins it or not, remains to be seen but, he definitely is a candidate.

I know that the heart is regular season. This is just a bit of information to share on the time that matters....the playoffs. Over his career he has averaged less than a point per game and has less in the post season. I am just waiting for him to fold like usual. My vote is for Vincent Lecavalier so far. He can score, hit, fight and stand in the tough areas unlike Alfy. He is the complete package with a Lord Stanley. Alfredsson has a long way to go for another shortfall in the spring!

This season it looks like he's hungry to get back to the cup final. When he's got the puck you can't knock him off it and his passes are what Spezza's should look like. If the Sens finish first in the East he has to be considered for the Hart.
And Blue obviously was golfing last spring b/c he missed the Buffalo/Ottawa series where Alfie dominated and the Sens fans finally gave him the respect he deserves.
Alfie! Alfie! Alfie!
