I've always wondered how Elias still hasn't won it yet.

Didn't Zajac get like 2 votes a couple of years ago?

Tracy Morgan :rolleyes:

Heard Nickelback is in this too :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Why does this have to be all pomp and circumstance for 2 freakin hours? NBC need ratings now that the cup is over?

and of course a cheap shot at the devils..."I hear the devils got another penalty so I got time for a few jokes..." :blahblah:

How did Henrique NOT win the Calder? This is a joke, like usual.

Because Landeskog is really good.

Psh.

If the voting took the playoffs under consideration Henrique would of won without a doubt.

Henrique had 2 OT playoff series clinchers as a rookie. I'm sure he'd rather have those then the trophy.

Because awards are awarded for regular season play.

There is not one sports league (college or pro) that give postseason awards with playoffs taken into consideration.

Because landeskog and Nugent-Hopkins both had better seasons.

They were gonna award the KovalCup to Ilya Kovalchuk, but there are rumors that they are going to rename The Stanley Cup to The KovalCup.

KOVALCUP!

I dont remember the actual joke, but she said something about having more time on stage if the devils would just take another penalty. It was something along those lines.

Erin Andrews said something like "the Devils took another penalty so I have time for 3 jokes" or something like that.

Then she thanked the few people who laughed for laughing.

Not funny IMO.

The Queen forgot to thank his pads in his acceptance speech. They have to feel slighted.

That plus they're both first-year pros and that probably gets them both brownie points in Calder voting. Funny that people now forget how much Henrique was struggling at the end of the regular season because of his playoff heroics.

thats a billion times funnier than the five minutes i watched. Luckily i caught the rookie trophy. I agree with others, Hendrique was struggling for a while in the regular season. If i voted, i d be afraid to vote for him, i'd think everyone was thinking i voted based on the playoffs as well. for the highlights they said the colorado guy, was the leading scorer on his team, i thought "he plays for the avalanche" but its still impressive. The OIler guy got a hat trick in his third professonal game. Henrique, they said, got the most short handed goals. I can accept him not winning it. Hes still great though, but all three are (So far). I then got bored and watched Zombieland, something i had been meaning to do. It insulted my intelligence (zombie survival intelligence, any other is lacking) but was a good flick.

+1

Imagine he played on a better team with more scoring talent, Canucks Penguins Red Wings..those teams would be unstoppable. Never seen a goalie carry a team like the way he just did.

I'm hoping Henrique went up to the Queen at the after party, shook his hand, and said "ME!!! ITS OVER!!!"
