CALDER MEMORIAL TROPHY (outstanding rookie): Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins; Jordan Staal, Pittsburgh Penguins; Paul Stastny, Colorado Avalanche.

CANUCKS TAKE THREE

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
The NHL awards are still a ways away, but the good people over at The Hockey News just couldn’t wait. Is this a preview of what’s to come when the NHL doles out their shiny metal? Maybe, maybe not. But a little recognition is always good thing. The Canucks took three of THN’s annual awards announced last week. Roberto Luongo edged Marty Brodeur for the...

Awards, trades, free agents...

So here we are with the NHL Awards on tonight (does anyone really care?) and most of the talk seems to be around the MVP, Goalie and Rookie. If it was up to me, it would be Sid for MVP, Luongo for Goalie, and Staal for Rookie. We'll see how that pans out. I'm not sure how much trade talk goes on at the awards. I'm torn on what I would like to happen. I wouldn'...
First of all congrats to all the NHL award winners, especially Hart Trophy winner Sidney Crosby. So, Thursday night, after a rough day at work, I get home. I get my mail and I see my wonderful-if ill gotten-HockeyBuzz hat has arrived. Immediately the day is brighter. I am going to have some chicken enchiladas and watch the NHL awards show on Versus. Well, I get my me...
[b]Alain Vigneault - Vancouver Canucks[/b] The NW is a cake walk of a division. 5 out of the 8 teams from the western conf. that made it into the playoffs had higher point totals than the NW divison winners the Canucks. Im not saying Vigneault and the Canucks didnt have a good season but there were obvious better choices for the award. Also i dont see how Randy Carlisle...
So we had the NHL Awards last night. I didn't watch them. All that I saw was from the bar after work. Honestly, I don't even get why these are on the tv. I like that awards are given out but the whole event just seems a little over the top for me. But that's just my point of view. As for who got what last night, most were expected. It was nice to see Vigneau...
Last night, I was pretty ticked off about not being able to watch the NHL awards show. I find the awards show, with it's awful humor and poor production qualities, a great coda to the NHL season and playoffs. Well, I wrote a blog blaming the NHL and Gary Bettman. Turns out it was a TV truck from the CBC. I still fault Bettman for a great deal of the NHL's issues, howev...
Alrighty, amigos. The following is my prediction for the 2008 NHL award winners. Some will be obvious, Mr.87, while some will be shocking... which is a good thing.

Since the calender is fast approaching October, its time to sharpen our skates and make some NHL forecasts. We'll start with the Eastern standings. 1. Ottawa 52 24 6 110pts 2. Pittsburgh 52 25 5 109pts 3. Tampa Bay 46 32 4 96pts 4. Philadelphia 48 27 7 103pts 5. NY Rangers 48 28 6 102pts 6. Buffalo 47 28 7 101pts 7...
2007 had its share of ups and downs for the Islanders and their fans. From being a team picked to finish dead last, to clinching a playoff berth in the last game of the year, and the anointment of a new captain, there were some great moments this year. Without further ado, here are my Islander awards for 2007:(I'm going by the calendar year 2007. Late 2006 does not count.)...

A Skate Down Memory Lane

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Before the Washington Capitals take on the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at the Wachovia Center, goaltender Ron Hextall will become the 19th player inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame. Hextall was drafted in the 6th round of the 1982 draft by the Flyers behind superstar goalies like Mario Gosselin, Dave Meszaros, Shawn Kilroy and Dave Ross. In his first year in the NHL...
Here's a quick bit of fluff, as I attempt to pick my choices for major NHL award winners. Hart Trophy Finalists: Jarome Iginla, Calgary; Alexander Ovechkin, Washington; Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa. My Pick: Ovechkin. Ovechkin is the most exciting player in the game and he is the Capitals. Not only is he supremely talented, but he plays the game with a passion an...

Today the NHL announced its finalists for the Lady Byng Award. And to be honest I was first shocked to see Pominville's name listed as a finalist. But then I realized that it isn't that far fetched for Jason to be nominated. Do you ever see 29 complain? He is a true professional on the ice. He lets his skill and hard work tell his story. I think he has a legitimate shot a...

NHL Awards predictions

Tomorrow night is the NHL's version of The Oscars: The NHL Awards (boy, what a killjoy opening sentence). I did one of these blogs a couple of years ago on my MySpace, with somewhat successful results. I went 4-for-8. You can read the predictions blog here: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=32863123&blogID=135769656&Mytoken=89AEB6AC-619E-...
These are just for fun, and to get discussion going. If you disagree that's cool, just don't bash, as that always seems to happen on these boards.

Well by this point in time the teams are fully composed. Bad teams are bad, good teams are good, and mediocre teams are well, mediocre. So let's hand out a few awards at this point in the season. I must be fair here. I have seen very few games from the Western teams. For this reason I will concentrate only on the Eastern Conference for these awesome, fictitious aw...

Vezina Candidates

Posted Thursday | Comments 4
It's time for Martin Brodeur to step down from his throne. Because of his torn bicep, Brodeur missed most of the season. It would be an insult to the other 59+ goaltenders that have played this year if Brodeur did win his third-straight and fifth career Vezina. I'm not saying Brodeur is not the best goaltender, but he wasn't the best this year. You can't be the best if ...
Unlike the awards that are given to forwards, which recognize both offensive and defensive aspects of the game, the Norris is the ONLY award given to defensmen. (OK...technically the Art Ross and Maurice Richard awards go to the forward OR defenseman with the most points or goals...but when was the last time a defenseman was at the top in those categories?) I think it's...
Each year, the experts get together and vote on the best players in the game. As part of my decade in review, I'd like to look back at the last 10 years and award the Vezina, Norris, and Hart Trophies to best candidates, covering their play over the entire decade. Some worthy candidates were passed over in these categories, because they only played a handful of seasons, ...

MY Awards Predictions

Stanley Cup: NJD Reason: All hinges on Brodeur, but with a more competent backup (The Moose), he will get more rest in the regular season and with the wicked supporting cast NJ has, I can definitely see them taking it all if Brodeur steps up his post-season play. Presidents: Washington Capitals Reason: Is a reason needed? Maurice Richard: Alexander Ovechkin Reason...

Does Ovechkin Have Hart?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 5
Is Alex Ovechkin now a candidate for the Hart Trophy? If you told me after the first couple weeks of the start of the season that the Washington Capitals would be sitting atop the Southeast with 8 games left I would have laughed at said, "Maybe". If you told me that Alex Ovechkin would be tied for the league lead in goals I would have laughed a little harder and said, "...

NHL Year End Awards

The following is simply a list of my picks for the various NHL awards, not predictions. Hart Memorial Trophy: Alex Ovechkin - Sid the Kid was hands down the MVP for the first 3/4 of the season, but after his injury, it turned into the Ovi Show. If Crosby had remained healthy he would most likely be handed this award, or if Sergei Bobrovsky's Blue Jackets had made the p...

Early Picks for Major Awards

Hey everyone, Let's jump right into it shall we? Calder - Drouin Lady Byng - St. Louis Vezina - Rinne Art Ross - Sid the kid Rocket Richard - Stamkos James Norris - Letang Ted Lindsay - Crosby Hart - Giroux (had to be a little bias, forsee a 100 pt season - 30 more than the next Flyer) Jack Adams - Patrick Roy Big year for the Lightning (offensively), Ben ...
The Ducks enter the half way point of the season with a record of 28-8-5, and their 61 points tie them with Chicago for the top spot in the entire NHL (with Chicago winning tonight, they now sit 2nd overall, but at the 41 game mark, the 2 teams were tied in points). The Ducks currently hold a 5 point lead in the Pacific Division over the Sharks, and the Kings are 2 points ...

The title is kind of blunt, isn't it? I remember watching it a few years. It wasn't exactly can't miss television. Hey guys, I got a great idea... it's 26 degrees outside, so let's go inside and watch a bunch of hockey players pick up trophies with deadpan faces and speaking with all the emptiness you'd expect in a hockey interview during the intermission.
