I'm going to leave this poll up all the way until the night of the NHL awards, so hopefully the vote totals can get up there. It takes maybe a minute to sign up for an sbnation.com account and you'll be logged into all 29 hockey blogs (soon to be 31), so it's well worth it.
You can also sign in using your Yahoo ID.
Just a quick note that this award does not have to be given to a player who missed time due to injury. By definition, it's for "the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."
