you can make a case but realistically there are 20 guys ahead of him on that list.

What is he a -50?

Selke to a winger? Usually a center wins the award as one of the most important aspects of playing defense is keeping the puck from your opponent. Winning draws is pretty huge there. Likely the usual suspects with Kesler winning this season.

really underrated as a player, but the selke has Kesler's name on it!

kesler, datsyuk, zetterberg, toews, d. sedin, pavelski, b. richards, m. richards. bergeron, plekanek, krejci, morrisson, bolland, legwand, malholtra, kopitar, marchant would all be ahead of nielson IMO,
