In Topic: Yzerman wins GM of Year (& other awards discussion)

Karlsson winning the Norris again is kind of the death knell for that award for me.  Don't get me wrong, he's a great player but even Sens fans acknowledge that he had a bad start to the year.  


The award is allegedly  "given to the defenseman who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position."  By giving it to Karlsson this season in spite of his bad Sep-Dec they've removed both the "all-round" part and now the "throughout the season" portion as well. 


If they were giving the award for best two-thirds of a season then it should be Giordano's.  Apparently hockey writers have about as long of memory as the younger members at hfboards.  If you've played well in the last month then you're the greatest of all time. 



I'm so done with that award it's a joke. The job of a defender is to well...defend and not play like another forward. Yes Karlsson is elite in terms of offensive ability but as a defender he is average . Keith, Weber, Suter, Seabrook, Doughty, McDonagh, Pietrangelo

Are all better at the defensive side of the game and yet only Doughty was nominated what a joke.

Price with 4 awards is deserved this goalie had an unreal season, also the Jack Adams for Hartley is great and of course the best for the last award the captain winning GM of the year is just awesome .

As far as the community awards just like the masterton everyone is a winner there but extremely happy for Z

Still think there should be 2 awards for best D-man. Offensive (The Orr Award) and Defensive (The Lidstrom Award).

Let's hope.  I'm guessing Holland will have to eat some of Weiss's salary to move him though. 

Maybe TO can do the same... 


Actually, I'm not sold on Phaneuf. If it were has Calgary days, absolutely, but now... seems less effective in TO. Maybe it's the coaching or the 'C' but he isn't what he once was.

Can someone shop Red Wings logos over the TB ones in the background? This still makes my tummy hurt. :lol:

Did you see the PS in this? His undershirt is red, hinting that he has a jersey on under it. 


I think.

That puck was never falling into the bench. That's why it was a penalty.

Even better reason to just let it fall in / let it stay in play. The point is, why lift your hand to grab it at all? It's not like he's at a Tigers game and is going to keep it. Why try to grab it at all? It is mindbendingly complex as to what must have gone through his head to make him reach out and grab it. 


Dumb. Just dumb. He should be sitting tonight even if it wasn't a throw away game.
