Or so Marty York said today in the Metro freebee. I didn’t even need a morning coffee after reading that headline. Wide awake, I almost screamed out loud ‘Wait a Minute!’ But given that York might have some personal insight into being “on the decline” I persisted. York states the obvious by writing that Brodeur is a future Hall of Famer but concludes “he...

The April 2007 issue of Beckett Hockey magazine published an artilce titled "The Greatest Card Ever Sold" focusing on the sale of this Georges Vezina...
- An Eduoard Newsy Lalonde C55 1910-11 Imperial Tobacco hockey card, graded 3 out of 10, has sold for $100K tying the record for the most paid for a hockey card. In April 2007 the record was set by a C56 1911-12 Georges Vezina rookie card graded in mint condition.

Every year, around this time, a certain goalie is linked with a certain trophy. Year in and year out, [b]Martin Brodeur[/b] is on the list of goalies who deserve the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vezina_Trophy] Vezina Trophy[/url]. He's a fantastic player, and will enter the Hall of Fame without question. One goalie, who has been a rock for his team to build a playoff ...

Vezina Candidates

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
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 ...
Ever since Ryan Miller's magnificent performance in the Olympics, and perhaps a few weeks before, many hockey experts have been tripping over themselves to declare Miller the winner of this year's Vezina Trophy. If feel good stories counted on equal footing with stats, then that may be true. However, a closer look at the situation reveals that this year may be one of the...

Vezina Trophy Favorites

Posted Monday | Comments 0
2,098. That’s the number of shots Ryan Miller faced last season. 150 of those shots got past Miller and into the back of the net. Miller won the Vezina Trophy as the most outstanding goaltender during the regualar season, but can he do it again this year? Martin Brodeur will likely be the biggest challenge (again) for Miller. Even though Brodeur is approaching 40, he ...

The Case for Brygalov

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
This season has seen a resurgence in elite goaltenders, many with great stories. Tim Thomas has gone from the most overpaid one hit wonder, to the top statistical goaltender in the league. Pierre Gauthier was five seconds away from being hanged for trading playoff hero Jaroslav Halak and retaining Carey Price. Price has put together an all-star season and is the reason why...

Early Vezina Talk

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Originally, I was going to write an all-out campaign piece for Jimmy Howard’s place in the All-Star game as well as Vezina trophy consideration, but it’s a little ironic that he had one of his, well, less-favorable performances against the Dallas Stars last night. He came away with the “W,” but I’m sure he’s not all that proud of it. Everyone’s entitl...

Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers was not only being mentioned for th...

NHL Year End Awards

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
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...
