They will be renaming the Lester B. Pearson award in Ted Lindsay's honor!

While I think the idea of renaming the NHL's trophies is completely asinine I do like to see Lindsay get some recognition.

But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Do you guys think there should be another award for D-men for top offensive D-men instead of just the Norris?. Mike Green is a good offensive D-men but not one of the top Defensive D guys in the League. I think the League gets blinded by guys like Green who are ok on D but put up points like a forward. I think the Norris should be for the Best D-man and should have like a Coffey or Orr award for best offensive D-man.

As much as I like Ted Lindsay, I wonder if this is the start of renaming all the trophies to former players :brow:?

Hart Trophy = Wayne Gretzky Trophy

Norris Trophy = Bobby Orr Trophy

etc.

I doubt it because this is a recognition for his work establishing the NHLPA more than his production as a player

Same. I have mixed feelings about it. Why change it anyways?

Exactly. The award is the one award voted on by the players, so it makes sense to have it named after a player rather than a prime minister.

Ted Lindsay is thef****** man! Great news!

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

This is wonderful news. I've been in favor of this since it was suggested in some article that I read some years ago. GREAT idea.

I applaud this move. Now, if someone could only convince Mr. Lindsay to do his autobiography.
