The (not so) Obtuse Moose
Consider this: the voters had Luongo second in MVP voting behind Crosby, so it would stand to reason that they thought Luongo was the best goaltender, since he finished ahead of Martin Brodeur in the voting for the Hart trophy.
But wait a minute. Brodeur finished ahead of Luongo in the voting for the first all-star team, which means that some of the same voters who put Luongo ahead of Brodeur on their MVP ballots reversed the order when they voted for the first all-star team.
There aren't too many GMs moonlighting as hockey scribes.
UPDATE It's me who got it wrong here, as the Moose is talking about the 'top goaltender' in the sense of the first all-star team and not the Vezina. The year-end all-star teams are voted on by the PHWA.
Of course, an all-star team and an MVP award are different animals, but I can see why he's pointing out the difference here.
Ah, time for some of that Jim Beam he talks about. And sincere apologies to the Moose.
