NHL awards show tonight; awards contest today

304

OK, let’s have a little contest. Pick your winner for each of the NHL awards to be presented tonight. I can’t promise any prizes, but I might be able to scare up something.

Remember, the voting was done the day after the regular season ended. Playoffs have no bearing. Also remember that the Pro Hockey Writers Association (of which I am no longer a member) did most of the voting, except for the Vezina (done by GMs), the Adams (by the broadcasters) and the Lindsay/Pearson (by the players). I don’t know who picks GM of the year or the Messier Leadership winner.

Whomever gets the most awards correct wins.

Just in case there’s a tie, the first tiebreaker will be the winner of the Selke, second tiebreaker the winner of the Norris, the third tiebreaker the winner of the Calder (wanted to get categories with no Rangers). For the fourth tiebreaker, pick a number between 2 and 12. I will roll dice if need be. Do not even dream of entering more than once. All entries must be in this thread only. The contest closes when the “It’s Go Time!” post goes up prior to the awards show. Judges decision will be final (I am the judge). In case of an unforeseen situation, or if there’s an unbreakable tie, Sally will be declared the winner.

Here’s my entry, and yours should look like this (but with different winners):

Hart: Malkin.
Vezina: Lundqvist.
Norris: Karlsson.
Calder: Nugent-Hopkins.
Byng (who cares?): Moulson.
Selke: Datsyuk.
Adams: Tortorella.
Masterton: Alfredsson.
Lindsay/Pearson: Malkin.
Messier: Doan.
GM: Armstrong.

Fourth tiebreaker: 7.

    I usually participate in your contest Carp, but this one seems like a lot of work. I am going to pass.

    ilb,
    sure you agree with newbear, but I have been saying the same stuff for awhile now and you have never agreed with me. is it because of the whole Anisimov thing?

  25. he’s currently acting as a fly on the wall in the sather/prust negotiations and will report here with the latest shortly

  26. Re: Newbear’s ideas. I’m not in favor of bringing back the two line pass infraction. More face-offs are not exciting to see. Eliminating the trapezoid – sure, why not? Putting the lines back to where they were? Why? It won’t affect anything because changing the lines didn’t affect anything.

    Here’s three things that I would like to see:
    1. Eliminate shootouts
    2. Limit the size of goalie pads
    3. Increase rink size to that of international play.

  27. and Prust is surely gone as with all the exposure from 24/7 and the playoff run, a team will overpay him, just like the Flyers did with Talbot.

    I’m still hoping the Rangers can give him the same exact contract as Boyle, but not sure the Rangers will go up to 2 mil a year, although I have no problem if they do overpay him to keep him here.

  28. LOL, Lev! That’s right. I forgot JBeck/Chris G./Rod were so involved in the organizations daily goings on.

  29. Seems like it happens every year. A Ranger that we like wants those few extra hundred thousands per year and eventually signs with someone else and we sign a similar player who did well against us in the previous regular season/playoffs.

  30. Charlie: I like all those ideas. Totally into them. I do think bringing the two-line pass back would help eliminate some of the concussion injuries but I don’t have definitive proof so let’s just let that one go for now. I do, however, think we should limit rink expansion to less than international play, as that much of a change would totally, and I mean TOTALLY, change the dynamic of the NHL.

  31. It’s all part of negotiations. If he really wants to be here, and the team really wants him here (sure sounds like it), they’ll get it ironed out eventually.

  32. Hart – Malkin
    Vezina – Lundqvist
    Norris – Karlsson
    Calder – Landeskog
    Byng – Campbell (I only care because we’ve got season tickets to the Panthers lol)
    Selke – Bergeron
    Adams – Hitchcock
    Masterton – Lupul
    Pearson (I hate award name changes, they give me a headache! lol) – Malkin
    Messier – Doan
    GM – Armstrong (Personally I think it should be Tallon but It’s gonna be Armstrong)

    Lucky Number – 11 (Regular dice or Dungeons & Dragons dice? lol)

    Woohoo! 2 Days until the roster changes! lmao

  33. Prust is obviously a money hungry Canadian! I say we get rid of him. If he isn’t going to take a pay cut to stay here and fist fight everyone with injured hands then C’est La Vie!

  34. I hear you Manny, but changing the dynamic is what is needed to garner interest from the general public. The league simply needs more scoring. The popularity of the NHL was at its peak when Gretzky was scoring 90 goals and others were scoring in the 60s and 70s. Now a 30 goal scorer is considered elite. I hate that the NHL is confined to NBCSN and can’t get a national contract and that the Stanley Cup winning game barely gets a mention in the local newspaper and that no sports radio talk show will dare talk about hockey because it’s a tune-out factor.

  50. Doodie Machetto, Get well Tony and Miami Pimp on

    Oh crap I didn’t want Datsyuk! I wanted Bergeron!

  51. oh god if there’s any chance in the world that John Davidson could end up back with Sam Rosen…I actually think I’d cry tears of joys if that happened

  52. Oh, yeah…Thank you, Lev. I remember now – this little midget with stone hands, cotton-soft shot, slow, limping skate and pie brain. Rear bird, who we exchanged for mighty Nash in historical trade, which crashed NYSE, right?

  53. Agree: make NHL rink bigger, like Finnish or olympic size. More space for skill, shooting lanes, and makes it harder to hit the speedsters. Reduces injuries and opens up play.

    They will never do it becasue of the cost impact, but it was the right thing to do before all these new rinks went up. They didn’t. I understand retrofit not possible in many rinks.

    I just hope they don’t mess with size of nets. That’s sacrilege. But the cost is nil. Don’t forget that. If I was BETTingMAN, I’d bet on this happening.

    3 point regulation win would partly help cure this whole parity thing.

    I also think they should go back to best of 3-5-7-7 playoff series, or at least 5-5-7-7. They go on too long. Again, money prevents that.

    Prust is worth 1.5m tops. 2 years at that is ok or 3 years at 1.4 ea. Otherwise he goes somewhere else, tries to hard, gets hurt and peters out.

    Prust is worth a 3 year 5.4 million contract. he probably wants 6 million over three years. While I don’t believe he is worth more than Boyle to the team, he certainly is worth much more than the garbadge AHL player , Mike Rupp.
    They should by out that turd and give Prust the 2 million per he seeks. He may be a little over priced at that level but when compared to Rupp who is stealing money for what he ” brings” its worth it.

  60. czech: Prust at $2 million is downright insane

    I would hope everyone realized Mike Rupp was colossally overpaid the second that contract was signed, but two wrongs don’t make a right.

  61. I can’t believe it, but I agree with Lloyd. You have to be careful to not overpay the bottom of your lines or else you start making those guys too valuable and messing with the overall balance of the Cap. 4th line guys have to be paid like it. If they want to argue for $2m/year then they are just going to price themselves out of the NHL. The cap is here to keep balance. You have to honor it.

  63. The cap is here to keep balance. -You have to honor- find loopholes to exploit it.

    Fixed

  64. paying Prust an extra 500K per year will have ZERO cap implications now and in the future. Same goes for Mike Rupp.

    You get into problems by having guys making millions over what their production really is. Scott Gomez, Wade Redden, Chris Drury come to mind and likely Brad Richards a few years from now (although you take that if he makes up for it in the short term)

  66. Get used to it. Brad Richards will be tweeting about golf and boxing for the next *8 years*. Hopefully, he shaves few strokes off his handicap and he gets to watch a match that isn’t *RIGGED*.

    morning ILB, manny, and all!

    Did brooks really report Prust is going to free agency? That would suck in a major way!!

    Off to work, SIGN PRUST!!!

  69. My bad, if I roll a pair of dice, then the No. 1 cannot come up … unless the die hits the table and I decide to only count the one — which is clearly interference.

    so if you put down 1, and want to change it, now’s the time to do it. Or I’ll count it as 2 (snake eyes).

  70. wicky, it sounded on breakup day that Prust would go to free agency. That doesn’t mean he won’t be back, but it does mean he will drive up his price.

  74. If Hitchcock was the Blues’ coach right from the get-go, Torts would win the Adams. But because he took over a team that was floundering at the time, he’s gonna get the nod. Boooooooooo!!!

  75. czechthemout!!!! on

    Lloyd

    I don’t disagree. I just meant to say that Prust is easily worth 2 million per if Rupp is worth 1.7 . I wish they could just park Rupp’s ass in Hartford and use some of his dollars to pay Prust. But I also don’t think Prust is not replaceable.

  76. Czech: Please try to remember that the word @$$ could better be translated on this blog as, “Asham” or perhaps you could try on a new one, “Ashton”

  77. prust and boyle should have matching contracts.

    3 yrs 5.1 mil. 1.7 avg.

    prust wants 2 mil rangers prob offering 1.4 up about 500k from last year so just meet in middle.

    if he goes to july 1 someone will give him a talbot type deal with 4-5 yrs and then its on him to see how much he wants to stay

  78. As I didn’t read the dice thing properly, I would like to change my tiebreaker from 2 to a lazy, odds-playing 7.

  79. Carp – a bit off topic here, but curious to hear your opinion, as a sportswriter, on the MLB Hall of Fame voting. If you had a vote, where do you stand on Clemens, McGwire and Bonds…to name a few…

    And, particularly this year, with Braun testing positive but loopholing his way out of a suspension, would you vote for him as MVP should his numbers justify consideration?

  80. “where do you stand on Clemens, McGwire and Bonds…”

    I’d choose the head. Huge surface area provides most stability.

  81. czechthemout!!!! on

    Carp

    I am used to it. Doesn’t mean I like it or that I will ever embrace it. And I also will continue to trash him every step of the way until his play warrants my stopping it. But don’t hold your breath Carp because he will always play like the trash AHL player that he is.

    Fourth tiebreaker: 9.

  83. I do vote for the Hall of Fame, Buster … and I’m thinking of giving up my vote because of the steroid issue. I won’t vote for Bonds, Clemens, and haven’t voted for McGwire. Some in the BBWAA say they will make exceptions for players who were headed to the Hall with or without steroids.

    My fear is this. If I make a stand against the cheaters — A-Rod, et al — and then years from now it turns out that somebody else got in and we found out that he cheated, then what? If we put Player A in the Hall because we think he’s clean, then find out he wasn’t clean, how do we justify keeping Bonds and A-Rod out?

    I think I may not vote anymore. Plus I think we’ve cheapened the Hall by opening it to very good players, not just immortals. I read where Paul Konerko is going to be a Hall of Famer. When was he one of the very best players in baseball?

  84. I’m not defending him, czech. I think he’s better than you think he is, and worse than they think he is. Maybe part of it was the knee. I see the intangibles, but I don’t see any great stuff on the ice. I think he’s replaceable. I just don’t think they will replace him any time soon.

  85. Rupp is horrendously underpaid for someone with a bad knee and a stack of intangibles. Maybe he needs a LLWS win too.

    Carp

    If they need to boost morale, they can hire Kate Upton to walk through the the dressing room in a bikini. An NHL roster spot is too valuable to waste on a cheer leader.

  88. bull dog line on

    Carp,
    I think those guys should go into the Hall, but have it be called the steroid era. I can’t stand that they all cheated, but as you said, someone will get in and turn out to have used.

  89. czechthemout!!!! on

    Manny
    Kate Upton can play on the third line with Cally. She would do more for the team than Rupp ever can. Rupp can be used the next time we play an outdoor game against a swiss cheese goalie.

  90. Thanks Carp – great to hear your thoughts on that, especially since you do get to vote. Have to agree with all of your points. Rickey Henderson may be someone that qualifies as a ? clean…we’ll see.

    Last MLB question from me here then in this hockey blog…how ’bout Roger Maris?

  91. Yea and Kate Upton will set women’s rights back about 100 years more than Mike Rupp and his religion.

  92. I think it’s a disgrace that Maris isn’t in. I mean, who was more famous than he from 1961 through McGwire’s drug-aided record? Plus he had two more MVPs than Konerko, for example.

    czech, I have no problem with that.

  93. Sorry…. *POLITICS ALERT*

    LW – were the Mets 5-12 the last time you updated your *blog* ?

  94. I also think Pete Rose should be in because no matter what he did, he did it after his playing days. You want to ban him from baseball? Fine. But he belongs in the Hall.

  95. Amen. Rose is another no doubter. It’s not like he’s Shoeless Joe Jackson or anything. He bet a few times.

  96. My Dad is a big Maris guy…always was. My brothers and I promise to take him to Cooperstown if/when he finally gets inducted for the ceremony.

    Too bad Maris has already passed, but he absolutely should be in…especially in light of the steroid era.

    We did get to see him at his last old-timers day back in 84 or 85…not sure which year though, was only a lil kid still bringing his glove to the game even though we were in Row Z upper deck right field…was sure we’d get a ball up there.

    Baseball seemed so much purer back then…granted some of that goes to the naivety of youth, but still…

  97. Agreed, 100 percent, Buster. I don’t think Maris will ever get in, even by the legends or old-timers committee or whatever they call it these days.

  98. I make no pretence about it being regularly updated, Manny. It’s not one of your monthly subway stand periodicals.

    Might do something for (after) the draft though.

    You have some clout with the Rangers after all these years covering them. Put it in the suggestion box.

  104. R.A Dickey should be a hall of famer after these last 8 starts sick numbers. (jking about hall) but numbers are insane

  105. Dickey is going to be the first Knuckleballer to win the Cy Young if he keeps this up. I can’t believe he isn’t walking people.

  106. I’m sure if he continues to pitch like this, some sabermetrician will find reasons to put Dickey in the Hall.

  107. Yea, Dickey only needs about 140 more performances like these last few and he will be a shoe-in for the Hall.

  108. No…It’s a button that has the refresh logo on it….

    It’s waaaaaaaaay better than F5….

    >>>No to Kate Upton. She’s useless.

    Manny, if you think that Kate Upton is *useless*, you’ve been married too long already!! ;-D

  114. I do *NOT* like her Jimbo. Kate Upton is a vapid, unintelligent and purely salacious woman who, by her behavior, sets Women’s Rights back about 100 years. I don’t like the whole, “women who are valuable for their bodies only” type thing.

  115. I will make a few phone calls, eric. Let me just get out JBeck’s phone number here……

  116. JimboWoodside on

    I suppose that it would, Carp – but I’d be willing to risk it! I don’t have that many years left anyway! ;-P

  117. JimboWoodside on

    Who says that she’s vapid!? She might be a *very* smart gal – but that doesn’t pay the bills like her being a bikini supermodel!

    I’d be willing to administer an IQ test to her, if asked – I’ll bet that she’s VERY smart! ;-P

  118. I knew if I read all the comments on all the blog postings I’d finally find something useful! F5!!! lmao
    Is Tom Glavine in the Hockey Hall of Fame yet?

  119. JimboWoodside on

    OK, Manny – there’s no wrong answer! You have a right to your opinion, no matter how unfair to fair Kate it is….

  120. “I do NOT like her Jimbo. Kate Upton is a vapid, unintelligent and purely salacious woman who, by her behavior, sets Women’s Rights back about 100 years. I don’t like the whole, “women who are valuable for their bodies only” type thing.”

    Your comments set Women’s Rights back about 100 years.

    I can only assume that you are acquaintances with Upton with your description of her including vapid, unintelligent and valuable for their bodies only.

    If not, you are a sexist.

  122. Just got some bad news about a close relative. She was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. Not the worst disease but certainly nothing to brag about. I hear it’s similar to Parkisons but somewhat worse. A bit in shock right now and may not be around for a couple of days. Hope Hank and Torts win tonight. Take care everyone.

    Sorry to hear about that Lev. That’s really upsetting. Thoughts, prayers and others.

  126. Derek Stepan has been a productive contributor immediately since joining the Rangers in 2010-2011. He’s the only NHL player in the last two seasons who has at least 90 points and a cumulative rating over plus-20 in his first two NHL seasons.

  127. We are trying it, Sally. How does it taste/smell/feel ?

    I take back what I said about Kate Upton, Sally told me she dissed Avery on Tweeter. I love her.

  135. Prucha. We all loved him. He got pushed down the depth chart year after year before being shipped to Sather’s trading buddy in Phoenix.

    >>>Creepy, Jimbo. Just plain creepy.

    Watchoo talkin’ ’bout, Manny!? ;-)

  138. I don’t think Stepan will follow the same path. He’s not riding the coat tails of an insanely potent Jagr, especially on the PP. He also is scoring at a realistic clip relative to his shots, although I believe he’s scoring at a higher rate than he did in NCAA which is usually not going to be case.

  139. Take it for what it’s worth but, according to Rotter, and a good source (Not Rod/Chris G./JBeck) Patrick Kane is on the move on Draft day.

  142. Thanks, czech! I was a bit upset there for a bit. I am glad that a *man* was able to sort out what’s acceptable behavior towards a female. PHEW!

  143. Also: on the Prucha vs. Stepan thing. I think that Stepan is expected to be an assist guy rather than a goal scorer. That works to his advantage.

  144. The source is thirdhand coming from someone affiliated with the Flyers. How much should we believe this?

  145. Fair enough – but thinking if the boys get Nash (or I guess P-Kane) then top six are potentially: Nash, Gab, Hagelin, Cally, Richards and Kreider…that puts Step on line three, with less minutes and on the road to the desert.

  146. Trade him to Buffalo and let him sleep on a cot at their arena. He’s not gonna be able to get a taxi in that town.

    Fourth tiebreaker: 3.

  148. Buster – there is only one Centre in that list. I think Stepan and Anisimov, if not traded will have to play more minutes as a Centre for two exceptional wingers.

  149. I don’t think Kreider or Hagelin have spots in the top 6 carved in stone. With Kreider you’d hope he plays well enough to cement one but while the playoffs flashed his potential there’s no guarantee he hits the ground running in the regular season. Remember, a good chunk of the Caps series he was getting table scraps for ice time because of defensive issues.

  150. Buster, don’t forget, we were told by somebody “in the organization” that Callahan is a third-liner.

  151. >>NHL awards show tonight

    4th tiebreaker: 7

  159. There are so many stats that don’t go on record that make Lundqvist really stand out. First of all he plays in the Eastern Conference which scored over 300 goals more than the Western Conference. I can’t remember but I think that’s something like 10% more goals. The leaderboard in the offensive categories is thoroughly dominated by Eastern Conference players like Malkin, Giroux and Stamkos. There’s only one Western Conference player in the top 10 in points and he’s tied for 7th (Henrik Sedin); One in the top 10 in goals and that’s at number 9 (Corey Perry); And only 4 of the top 10 in assists. Meanwhile when you look at the defensive side of the game (goaltending stats), it’s no surprise that the Western Conference dominates. However, unlike with the offensive stats, there stands a lone beacon of light shining from the Eastern Conference that is among the top 3 in every major statistical category for goaltenders that played the majority of their team’s games (a.k.a. starting goaltenders). Even when you include Brian Elliot of St. Louis and Cory Schneider of Vancouver, Lundqvist still doesn’t fall any lower than 4th in any of those same categories. He tied Mike Smith for first in SP; Tied Jaroslav Halak for 4th in GAA; Was 3rd in SO and Wins, no matter who you include.
    How come you never hear about things like that?!

  163. Didn’t Stargell and Milner and Willie Mays all cop to using greenies? Rose too, I think. It may not be juicing, but it is a bit of the cheat.

And how many other roid users would have to go in. That would be a shame to baseball. Let’s not forget pitchers who also scuffed the ball are in the HOF. That’s cheating as well

  172. Pete Rose is the ALL TIME Hits leader. How does he NOT go into the Hall? Despite all the other brilliant things he did like play the game (each and every one) hard as a rock.

    He couldn’t e-mail Carp – he was already on his way out to Pittsburgh to direct the NYR Draft moves…

  174. Is anyone watching the NHL Awards Red Carpet? How CREEPY is Melrose putting his han Ron everyone’s shoulder during interviews! What a lame-o!

  175. yeah, jpg. insisted he will be at the draft table. i told him that Sather doesn’t know him and that he’d better have a ticket if he plans on being at the draft, after he questioned my integrity, etc. he threatened that the players wouldn’t talk to me anymore … LOL. … I corrected some of his grammar and spelling, told him it’s beyond laughable that Callahan is considered a third liner by “90 percent of the org.” then banned his aasen.

  176. Hank is up for “tree” awards tonight…if he doesn’t win at least one then this whole crap-show is *RIGGED!*

    Wow, Carp – at least he was persistent in his claims, if nothing else! ;-D

  178. it would be a beauty if Torts goes all Alec Baldwin while walking down the Red Carpet

    C3, can’t that “autocorrect” feature be turned off? I see so many errors created by that feature that it boggles my mind that people don’t disable it, if that is possible.
