NHLPA.com looks back at the outstanding 2003-04 seasons of Roberto Luongo, Joe Sakic, and Martin St. Louis – who was voted 'most outstanding' by his peers while being commended on his play and character by Players' Association trailblazer, Ted Lindsay, who thinks the two have a lot in common!
"I'm so happy to see him where he is, because he's more my size!" quipped Lindsay before revealing the award's recipient. "It's amazing when you think that this young man, set all records on his college team, was not drafted. I certainly hope that the scouts in the National Hockey League will take another look. You don't need to be six-foot-two to six-foot-five. You can be five-foot-nine and have a big heart and lots of guts, and have a desire to win. That's what this young man has."
St. Louis, won his first and only Ted Lindsay Award that season, formerly known as the Lester B. Pearson, after that same season winning the Art Ross Trophy, Hart Trophy, and a Stanley Cup championship with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
