Toews is facing off against Lidstrom for the award itself in the finals and this right here is for all of the marbles- this will actually win our Captain an award (although admittedly it will not mean as much among NHL players as winning a non-fan vote related piece of hardware, it still means SOMETHING as it is selected by the fans and actually up to this point accurately depicts his standing among leaders in the league). This is the first time you can honestly call Toews an underdog in this competition, as he is down by a large margin to Lidstrom. Toews might not have the dominating offensive stats to win the Hart Trophy, he might not be the media favorite to win the Selke (though the numbers for that are definitely there, yikes), but this is one award that definitely should be his and luckily fans can vote for it.
This is your chance to go out and support your team and your captain, get it done- you can only vote once!
