Yeah I wasn't on the awards committee last season so I didn't dive into the various nominees as much as this year but I do think y'all had a decent case. Winning the cup isn't supposed to matter and the importance of each of those boxes (and possibly other boxes) varies wildly over time as the committee membership changes.
Plus the whole premise is kind of dumb. It takes seasons to build up a good team but we award it yearly and so are presumably only supposed to consider that season. For example, the trades you and Wozy made to get WBF and crutch were risky moves that paid off and were incredibly important to Detroit's success this season... but that was 2 offseasons ago so are those trades supposed to be considered for S38 Top GM before the impact is fully realized or S39 or S40 when they're a distant memory?
To piggyback on this, it's just a really difficult award to figure in juniors, especially if you aren't allowed to consider playoffs. For example, a team that drafts a ton of rookies, struggle to start the season, eks into fifth or sixth, but improves throughout the year enough to make a Cup run will never be acknowledged by the committee because they aren't supposed to look at playoffs and odds are their regular season standing went down.
ps thank christ this is based on regular season only lul 1 playoff point
Big Congrats to Lokitonov!
Also to all the other award winners!
