He should win.

He's more important to his team than those players and has had a better season imo.

I don't know if he'll win it, though. I doubt it and think Myers will probably be chosen.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Let me guess, this story was broken by Captain Obvious, Defender of That Which is Already Known? :hehe:

Congrats Jimmy, you have done above a fantastic job in Detroit.
40 for life.

He was defenitly our MVP of the season. I dont care what the NHL votes he won in my book.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

I agree that they'll probably take Myers for the winner, but Howie definitely deserves this one. He's been great for us this year, and I hope the kid keeps it up. He has potential to have a great career. :clap:

I know the playoffs aren't suppose to affect the voting, but I think the voting is always affected by it... I think it will all depend on this first round, if Buffalo can come back and win their series (not likely), I think Myers wins it, if not, regardless of other outcomes, Jimmy wins it...

in my opinion, he deserves it regardless, that's just what I think WILL happen...

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Let me know if I'm wrong here, but I believe the voting takes place before the playoffs start. In other words, they've announced the "top three" vote getters as the three Calder nominees, and among those three, someone has already been voted tops.

I still don't understand how they can ignore Rask despite the games played. Oh well, guess he can fly under the radar all the way to the finals. It's all about Miller right now despite Bruins are leading 3-1.

He has exceeded every single one of my expectations so far. (During the season prediction thread back in Septemeber, I had predicted that the Wings would have picked up a goalie at the trade deadline to backup Ozzie, oops.)

I don't think he'll win it, unfortunately. Everyone in the media has made too much out of his age, constantly pointing it out when his name comes up in rookie discussions. I think it'll go to Meyers, who has had a great season himself. Congrats to all three, they all had huge rookie years.

If it would then Rask would be the winner easily.

They can keep their Calder so long as Jimmy gets to lift the Cup this year.

Voting is already finished before the playoffs start. Myers, Duchene and Howard aren't really "finalists", they're just the guys who finished top 3 in voting. One of them has already won it, they just don't reveal who until June. Playoffs have no impact on these awards.

If one remove the red wing glasses and bias opinions this probably should go to Myers, with howard the 2nd and Duchene 3rd

I'm extremely shocked you didn't rank Howard at 3rd, or even substitute someone else in his place. Keep up the negativity :thumbup:

Howard earned a spot in the final three, but based on age and who he plays for, I wouldn't be shocked if he finished third in the voting. Myers will probably win.

All three are deserving though.

I have heard by some weird rule he isn't a rookie but I could be wrong.

oh... I thought just the nominees got voted for prior - thank you for the clarification!

This makes it a little more dicey then, but with Jimmy's play down the stretch, I still think he deserves it over Myers, but wouldn't be incredibly surprised if Myers won...

There are no nominees.....bit of a pet peeve of mine as I constantly see people suggest so and so is nominated for the Hart or some other award, or good 3 guys to pick to be nominated. As someone already stated, sort of, there are no nominees, they don't nominated 3 guys who then get voted on, voters simply vote for whoever they want, as long as they are eligible, and these "finalists" being announced over this week and next are simply those 3 that finished with the most points (based on voting, so many points for each 1st place vote, 2nd place vote, etc.).

The voting for ALL of the awards already took place...early last week, before the playoffs started.
