Even not taking the playoffs into account, the most egregious snubs were for Rutherford and Sullivan.

The Penguins had numerous injuries ALL SEASON LONG...and yet finished with the second-best record in the NHL and were within striking distance of the President's Trophy until the last week of the season...playing in what can be argued was the toughest division in the NHL (Washiongton, Columbus, and the Rangers all had 102 or more points...that's half the division right there).

For me it has to do with the length of the playoff run. That's almost a quarter of the season, if I did my math right. How can that be ignored?
