Myers should win this award. A quality defensive, shut-down type blueliner with 46 points doesn't come around every day.

Yer typical Calder-winning goalie of about 25-26 will need to have astounding numbers (Belfour, Esposito) in order to qualify in the minds of voters. J-Ho is in a unique situation in that the other candidates (Duchene, Tavares) are having rather un-amazing statistical seasons, while Howard is in the top five in the important statistical categories.

Hell with it, the NHL will fudge the numbers and just give it to a Penguin anyway. Congratulations, Mark Letestu. Job well done.

Howard and Myers is a pretty close race.

On another, unrelated note...
5 Red Wings at the time, and 11 more future Red Wings, have been named to the NHL All-Rookie Team in the 26 years it has existed.
