Iginla Nominated For Hart, Phaneuf For Norris

Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla is nominated for the Hart Memorial Trophy for the League's Most Valuable Player. Iginla lead the team with career high 98 points (50 G, 48 A) . Washington Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin and Pittsburgh Penguins' Evgeni Malkin are the other nominees.

Calgary Defenseman Dion Phaneuf was nominated for the Norris Trophy for the League's Best Defenseman. Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara were also nominated.

What are the chances of these two winning? Pretty slim. Lidstrom will most likely win the Norris...again. As for the Hart, the NHL wants Ovechkin to win it. On the bright side, being nominated is good since most of voters follow eastern teams. If it was my choice.....
