Hart Watch: Campbellnomics

Evgeni Malkin may have won the Art Ross Trophy, but the Hart Trophy is still up for grabs and, depending on which stats are most important to voters, Alex Ovechkin might be the front-runner for the league's MVP honor.

So if we were to use Campbellnomics, a stat system that judges players based on the importance of goals and points scored, who would be the front-runner?

Well two Russians lead the NHL in key goals scored. Their names? Alex Ovechkin and Alex Semin.

Here's what the leaderboard looks like at the conclusion of the NHL season.

So the question is: Is quality of points more important than quantity? I think yes.

Oh and before you ask, Mike Green is the Campbellnomics leader for defenders.

  1. Give the trophy to Semin.Caps would've have a bit more trouble if he didn't have that stunning start of the season
