Okay Sunday I said let’s at least start the conversation about P.K. Subban as a candidate for the Norris Trophy. Well it’s Monday and I’ve changed my tune. Today’s message – the Habs defenceman should be considered the leading candidate for the hardware!

My friend and invaluable hockey source Simon Boisvert – who’s a professional hockey scout and indie filmmaker – tweeted me Monday morning to say: ‘I think Subban should win the Norris. No one else approaches him this season.’

And I always take Simon Snake’s opinions seriously. And you should do.

And this just in that further strengthens Simon’s argument – Subban was named second star of the month of March by the National Hockey League, coming in just behind a superstar named Sidney Crosby, who was named first star.

The NHL press release details Subban’s accomplishments in March. He had more powerplay points than any other player in the league, with four goals and seven assists. And he did better than all other D-men – hello Norris voters! – with seven goals and eleven assists during the last month.

Did I mention he had seven multi-point nights, including a pair of three-assist games, one against the Florida Panthers March 10 and another against the fading New York Rangers this past Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

It gets better. He also became the first Habs defenceman since Mathieu Schneider in February 1994 to score seven goals in a month!

You need more Norris arguments? He leads all defencemen with ten goals and is third in points for blueliners with 27 points (in 28 games for heaven’s sake!).

With six PP goals, he’s tied for first place in that category for D-men and with 18 PP points, he’s sitting pretty in the No. 3 spot amongst all players in the NHL in that area.

So yeah Simon has a point. Mail young Mr. Subban the Norris right now!
