Frei: It’s not Makar vs. Josi. Well, except on the ballot




When the ballots for NHL Awards all are in Monday night, Nashville’s Roman Josi and Colorado’s Cale Makar likely will be the top two vote-getters in the race for the Norris Trophy. The winner won’t be announced until after the Stanley Cup Finals.

Who’ll win?

That’s far from certain, especially given Josi’s stunning late-season rush for the Predators.

Because the ballots from members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association already will be in, nothing that happens in the upcoming Predators-Avalanche first-round playoff series will affect the vote.
