Top Five Norris Trophy Candidates

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

The Norris Trophy race clearly appears to be a two-man affair and, quite honestly, either player at this point is fully deserving. Let’s take a look at our Norris candidates:

5. Dan Girardi, New York Rangers
Leads all NHLers in ice time per game and helps spearhead the stingiest defensive record in the Eastern Conference. He’s much deserving of Norris consideration.

4. Alexander Edler, Vancouver Canucks
Second in the league among points by defenseman as of Wednesday morning with 37 (7-30), I chuckled when a player turned to me during All-Star Weekend in Ottawa and remarked he had no idea how good this Edler dude was until seeing him in person. Um, yeah.
