I heard that Katz really has a hard time firing people (in any of his businesses) - this is probably why Lowe would still be around in some capacity.

As already mentioned, it is not a forward only award.  However, it is very rare for a defenseman to win it.  Before Campbell, it had been 57 or 58 straight years of forwards winning it.  Wings' dmen have won it 4 times though.


It does make sense though if you think about it...forwards have at least a 100% greater chance at winning purely based on number of players, then factor in that most dmen....to be really good, you need to have a bit of a mean streak.  There are several exceptions of course, Lidstrom being one of them.

Another example of a decent guy, but one you hate on the ice.  I've said it a few times before, but there are very few players in the league that I truly see as complete...you know whats....the first that comes to mind is Lucic.

It really does suck to be the Pens right now and think about how their fortunes could have been different in prior years if Fleury was as calm and as good as he appears to be now.  Now that Fleury plays well, you've got a team that is playing without 3 of their top 4 defensemen and while Crosby is playing well, Malkin is clearly hurt or slumping horribly.

I don't think the hit was overly dirty, but I do think Wilson is a bit of a dirty player in general.  I could probably be talked into it being a dirty hit though, while he didn't jump into it, elbow him, etc., the guy was in a vulnerable position, not expecting the hit as he didn't have the puck and Wilson clearly had no interest in the puck.  I think he was called for charging, which is possible, but I think interference would have been the better call.
