The man, the myth, the legend.

Apparently the NHL awards ceremony was last night or the night before. I say apparently because I have no idea. Did anybody actually watch it on tv???? Seriously.
The awards went exactly as predicted, save one.
Devan Dubnyk won the comeback player of the year award. No surprise. good for him.
Aaron Ekblad won the rookie of the year award. I called that one months ago, although no one believed me.
Local player Jiri Hudler won the Lady Bing trophy as most gentlemanly player.
the shocker of the evening is that Erik Karlsson won the Norris trophy as best defenceman. Wow. Apparently the voters didn't watch anyone else play. Drew Doughty should be pissed right about now. So should PK Subban and Duncan Keith. And Mark Giordano. And.............
Carey Price won everything else.

That's the Jennings, Vezina, Hart, and Ted Lindsay trophies in front of him.

Unfortunately, in order to win the Stanley Cup, Carey will have to work on his goal scoring in the off season. Without improvement there, he has no chance.


  1. I can't stand that Karlsson won the Norris again. Apparently the trophy is for best offensive defenseman, even if you're a defensive liability.

  2. Karlsson winning the Norris disappoints me too. Oh well. I like seeing the Hart Trophy go to a netminder though
