In mid-February I picked Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks as the Selke Trophy leader.  While he remains a strong candidate, I think there is a stronger Selke Trophy leader right now in Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins.  Bergeron has a stronger +/- (adjusted or raw) while playing against a similar quality of competition with more penalty killing time.  Bergeron leads the Bruins in scoring with 25 points and in +/- with a +21.  He is tied for second in the league with that +/- rating.  Bergeron has been a solid Selke candidate for a few years and I think this is the year where he may win the award.
