Whoever wins the Norris Trophy this year as the NHL's top defenceman will have to beat out an impressive array of candidates to win the award.
P.K. Subban, who won the award last year, is in the running. Ryan Suter, who was exactly one first-place vote behind him, is also having a tremendous year. So too is Erik Karlsson, who won in 2011-12. And the scary thing is that there's a case to be made that none of those three is the front-runner for the award.
It's a field so crowded that truly exceptional players like Alex Pietrangelo, Dan Boyle and Ryan McDonagh aren't in the top 10 today.
Who is the most likely winner if things continue as they are? Read on for our take.
