Hart Trophy finalists

How big would it be if Pavel Datsyuk (deservedly) is named as one of three finalists for the Hart Trophy, Wednesday?

Here is some perspective ... since Gordie Howe finished third in Hart voting in 1966, the Red Wings have had just two top-three finishers, Steve Yzerman (third in 1989) and Sergei Fedorov (first in 1994).

How great would it be if Datsyuk won the Byng, Selke, AND Hart? And maybe even a Cup and Smythe too. (Here's hoping...)
