Lady Byng Leader

In late November, I picked Brad Richards of the Dallas Stars as the Lady Byng leader.  He has been surpassed in quality of play by a better Lady Byng candidate.  Martin St Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning has the same point total (63) as Richards, but plays a better defensive game.  This is shown in part by the fact that Richards has the second worst +/- rating on his team at -11 (Steve Ott is -13), while St Louis has a 0 rating, which is more in line with his team.  St Louis also has a slightly lower penalty minute total (8 vs. 10).  This makes Martin St Louis a better Lady Byng candidate at this point.

Though Martin St Louis has never won the Lady Byng in the past, I think he should have and would have voted for him last year.  Perhaps this will be the year he wins it.
