Top 5 Norris Trophy Candidates

5. Kris Letang, Penguins
Kris Letang definitely took a big step in the right direction last season, exceeding his previous career-high in points by 17. Some may not see Letang as a legitimate Norris candidate; but if last year was any indication, the more Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin stay healthy, the more it will benefit Letang. (Without No. 87 and 71, Letang had 9 points and a -8 rating in 29 games. With the dynamic duo? Letang recorded 41 points and a +23 rating in 53 games.) Defensively, Letang has improved leaps and bounds from previous years. If Letang puts up 60-plus points, for example, why can’t he be in this discussion?


And thanks to "58 Reasons" for finding this little goodie !!!!!!!!!!!! :)
