Sidney Crosby is the clear favorite to win the Hart Trophy, leading the league with 104 points (36 goals, 68 assists) and carrying the Penguins to the Metropolitan Division title despite all of the injuries to his teammates.
He likely would have won the award last season if he hadn't missed the final month of the regular season after taking a puck to the jaw.
Crosby needs to make room next to his 2007 Hart Trophy.
