We apologize for the technical problems.
I still have no idea what happened, but obviously something did.
I was thinking last night, as we post the finalists for the major awards each day, that I haven’t heard much from my Boneheads about the awards — except for the Vezina, and the usual distaste for a certain No. 30 who plays not far from MSG.
Now, I know you guys are smarter than a lot of NHL GMs (they vote for the Vezina). And I’m sure you are smarter than a lot of the broadcasters (they vote for the coach of the year). I doubt you are smarter than sportswriters (just kidding) who vote for everything else.
But I am curious about your thoughts on the big awards: The Hart (MVP), Calder (rookie), Norris (defenseman) and Adams (coach).
By the way, I will be out working, so I won’t be able to post today’s finalists. You guys can feel free to get them at NHL.com at noon or so and put them in the comments. Usually I’d count on Laurel in a situation like this, but she’s out partying, probably at some Blackjack table as we speak, in Vegas.
Thought for today: Is there anything dumber than all these mock NFL drafts that everybody does? I mean, have you ever seen one that was really close the the actual way the first round transpired? I haven’t.
