It's easy to say Sidney Crosby is the runaway pick for the Hart Trophy, as he leads the league with 78 points and the Penguins are the only bright spot in a dreadful Metropolitan Division. But there are a lot of other guys having dominating seasons.
Ryan Getzlaf is having arguably his best season for the Western Conference-leading Ducks with 67 points (29-38) through 56 games.
John Tavares was having a great season, but a season-ending injury in Sochi -- not to mention his team's disappointing place in the standings -- put him out of the running.
And you cannot forget the man who leads the league in scoring: Alex Ovechkin. The Capitals' captain should be motivated after the Olympics to get Washington back in the playoff picture and to add to his 40 goals.
