It's very early in the 2013 NHL season but it will be a fast season with more games crammed into fewer days in order to get in a season after the lockout. I am going to take this early point to pick my first MVP of the season so far. I select Tomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres who leads the NHL in scoring with eight points in three games (where a significant number of players have played four games).
Vanek is a proven NHL player who is capable of an All Star season. He has never been a serious MVP candidate and he may not by the end of this season but you never know. In a short season a fast start for an all-star calibre player may be all it takes to be MVP or at least a solid candidate. It will be interesting to see where Vanek finishes up this season but so far he has been great.
