Anyone find it as funny as I do Kane is up for the Lady Byng?

 

Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks, Matt Moulson of the New York Islanders and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning have been named the finalists for the 2013 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded "to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

Nope, not April 1st.

 

Kane?  Really?  Is the Lady Byng now for "most gentlemanly compared to previous years"?

Maybe "most gentlemanly on the ice compared to off it"?  Or "so darn gentlemanly that a soft Euro can rip out your mouthguard and you almost don't cry"?

 

No way he wins it.

And apparently 20.11 TOI/G and only 14 penalty minutes makes you a thug... no Pasha ;(

Are you sure he isn't up for the "Drunken ******canoe" award?

Kane? Sportsmanlike? I know a certain cab driver in Buffalo who disagrees...


"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Even more shocking is that Lidstrom never won it. He is the epitome of what the award is for.

Kane being nominated is an insult to the award and all previous winners. Hard to not take his off-ice conduct into account here.

Sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with high standard of playing ability......I think Mr. Filppula was missing the last piece.

 

I think the voters are simply looking at stats here and see that Kane has low penalty minutes.....but that doesn't always tell the whole story.  I was shocked when I saw his name as well.

I had to take a double take after seeing Kane, I was confident it was going to say "Evander" before that name.
