Who will win the Art Ross Trophy? I think it will be the player who has the most points by the end of the regular season! :)
Okay – that's my smart*** answer!
Seriously though – I'm going with the frontrunner. Malkin is currently up by four points, and he's played in less games than Stamkos or Malkin. (I think Kessel and Spezza are long shots.) His points-per-game average is the highest in the league at 1.38. (Well - Crosby is actually sitting at 1.55 for the limited number of games he's played this season.)
I hope it comes down to the last game of the season, and a few points or less separate the top three. Pittsburgh plays Philadelphia on the final day of the regular season, so this could be a great matchup between Malkin and Giroux. Tampa plays Winnipeg, which could be a big game for the Art Ross (if Stamkos is close), but it could also be a big game for the Jets!

I meant that Malkin has played in less games than Stamkos or Giroux. It's impossible for Malkin to play in less games than himself after all! :)
