Nathan MacKinnon for the Hart

As a biased Avalanche fan, I believe Nathan MacKinnon deserves to win the Hart Trophy. You may be wondering, what about Taylor Hall or Anze Kopitar? Yeah, they are excellent players, but seriously, Nathan MacKinnon deserves the Hart Trophy.

Let’s take some time and reflect why Nathan MacKinnon deserves the Hart Trophy. First off, he led a team that earned 48 points last year to the playoffs. The Avalanche were horrifying to watch last year. So to be able to watch them win games and trading away Matt Duchene and still find a way to go to playoffs with MacKinnon at charge, uh yeah, he deserves the Hart Trophy.  He’s proving that he’s the leader and the face of the Colorado Avalanche.

Also, he was second in points per game (1.31) and earned 97 points (39 goals, 58 assists) in 74 games. I believe if Matt Duchene got traded earlier, MacKinnon would’ve earned 100 points. If you’re close to a 100 points, you deserve to be in the MVP conversation.
