I'm not fan for renaming trophies, but I'll make an exception for Ted Lindsay. :thumbup:

I agree!

Or for changing the Messier Leadership Award to the Yzerman Leadership Award.

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

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.

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.

They may change others after this one maybe they are starting with one to see how its accepted and go from there, Lady Bing should be next, some shouldnt be touched though.

Great move, tho its going to be awkward for a while saying Lindsay instead of Pearson

I hope this doesn't unleash a trend of renaming trophies, but great for Mr. Lindsay!

Having the NHLPA's MVP award named for one of the men responsible for the formation of the group instead a Canadian Prime Minister with no connection to the game makes perfect sense. Great move in my opinion.

I'm very surprised that Ted Lindsay is the first guy they'd rename an award for.

I figured they'd call it the Wayne Gretzky or Mario Lemieux award, since they won it so many times.

cool. name the trophy after a great player and pioneer in the game. anyone who doesn't know the true story behind what ted lindsay did for the league, watch the movie "Networth"

things were the s***s for players before lindsay did what he did...and he sacrificed EVER being able to win the cup again in his cause. great man that deserves this honour.

it was named after a politician right??

this brings up a question though. when will wayne gretzky get a trophy? not that i was ever a huge gretzky fan, but there should be an award for most assists in the NHL regular season...and who better to name it after than the guy who has more assists in NHL history than the 2nd leading scorer all time has points with 1963 assists. seems like a good idea.

back on topic, couldn't be happier for terrible ted!

With all of the talk for another trophy (for d-men or other positions) this one makes sense, a trophy for most assists.

I like it deeznutz!

Not that my opinion means jack s*** though!
