Imagine if there was an accolade for anyone like Mark Stone of the Ottawa Senators, who had the anniversary of finishing sixth for the Selke endure analysis -- abaft 5 centers, and in foreground of 5 more.
As for a name, the accessible best would be Gainey, who is currently angry with Bergeron for a lot of Selke wins, with four.

Not abandoned because he won the accolade three times but because accepting one of those trophies called afterwards a European-born amateur is a atypical concept.Chris Peters, NHL affairs writer: If the Pro Hockey Writers Association voted on midseason awards, one of the awards we voted on that basically doesn't abide was the "Rod Langway Award.
