Because landeskog and Nugent-Hopkins both had better seasons.


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.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

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.

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.

Winning the cup is what its all about....guess he thinks the Rags are close...I think he would have much better chances elsewhere...would be waste of a talent like his to never get your name on the cup.

lundquist is good, very good and i will not go the route of a Ranger fan and badmouth him cause i hate him and say stuff like they do about Marty (he had a good defense in front of him, on a team like the Leaf's he would suck, etc etc....)

I have. His name was Dominik Hasek and he did it for basically all of the mid to late 90s. Then there's that Jonathan Quick guy this season. Virtually a deadlock statistically between him and Lundqvist during the regular season and then he goes on to put up historically great numbers in the postseason en route to a Stanley Cup. It's hard to even fathom the season Quick would have had if his team wasn't 29th in scoring during the regular season with 34 fewer goals for than the Rangers.

They were both great, but remember, Doughty may be the best blueliner in the league.

The voting is done before the playoffs begin. When they announce the finalists, those are the guys that finished top three in voting.

Unless you drive a modified 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 how could they have thought his playoff play tainted your vote if the voting is done before the playoffs?

That show was f'n terrible, and that is putting it mildly. I actually switched over to Law and Order reruns and just checked back periodically to hear the announcements. They need to stop with the "entertainment" aspect and run it like a HS awards assembly. Just hand out the hardware and be done with it. If you need to fill some time, give out some lifetime achievement awards or do some stuff to honor the games past.

I disagree, i think the Jay Mohr years were funny and I like how the NHL does a show, and not just announce them in a press release.

I remember a couple of years ago, Jay Mohr did a great job, but then they have weird musical acts or circus performances like last year.

Other comedians would definitely host the show, Nickelback is fine...people just want to complain. They aren't the greatest band, but for a one song performance who cares, give these guys some credit - they sell out buildings and are hockey fans. They aren't faking it like some other "celebs."

It just needs a better producer.

I wonder, though, exactly how much of a hockey fan Jay Mohr really is.

Remember a year or two back on the show when he referred to Tampa's GM as "Steve Wiserman"?

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Will Arnett doing fake Shanny was pretty funny. Definitely the funniest thing they did. Everything else was predictably lame and awkward.
