How can he be undeserving of the 2nd two? Art Ross is for leader in total points. It's a very black and white award. Either you're out there scoring points for your team every night (Ovy) or you're always injured (Sidney). It's not like it's some judgment call.
And in terms of the Hart.....what is Pittsburgh's record and winning percentage without Sidney? Probably about the same as it is right now. They are doing just fine without him. Washington on the other hand is a bottom feeder without Ovechkin playing out of his mind. For me, that makes the Hart decision easy. Washington needs Ovy more than Pittsburgh needs Sidney.
