Gutsy pick for Vezina, Ohds. Not too many PST goaltenders get recognition, let alone beating out the star of the New York Rangers who is also a Hart Trophy finalist.. I can't think of too many times the sole goaltender in Hart Trophy running did not win the Vezina..

Hart nominees: Lundquist, Malkin, Stamkos
The Rangers only looked as good as they were because Lundqvist was as good as he was.

Lindsay nominees: Lundquist, Malkin, Stamkos
The guy just scored 60 goals. Players are gonna vote for him.

Norris nominees: Chara, Karlsson, Weber
Weber is a stud all over the ice, Nashville leans on him for both defense and offense.

Vezina nominees: Lundquist, Quick, Rinne
No way it can go to anyone else, look at his numbers and the number of one goal games he played in.

Selke nominees: Backes, Bergeron, Datsyuk
Datsyuk is in a league of his own when it comes to this award. The only reason Kesler won it last year was because Pavel was hurt and missed a chuck of games.

Calder nominees: Henrique, Landeskog, Nugent-Hopkins
The guy plays in every situation and was a big reason the Avalanche even came close to the playoffs this year.

Adams nominees: Hitchcock, MacLean, Tortorella
Gotta be Hitch. St. Louis was headed to the basement again until he took over almost halfway through the year, then they came within 2 points of the President's Trophy.

Conn Smythe: If LA wins it'll be Quick or Brown. If Jersey wins it'll be more of a toss up.....Kovalchuk is putting up the points, Henrique is scoring big goals and has two series winners in OT, and Brodeur might just get it as a nodd to one of the greats who goes out after winning yet another Cup (the NHL needs some historic story moments right now).
