Thanks VC - great summary!

Amazing that last year the Canucks were front and center with so many nominees and expected winners. And this year we're...nowhere to be found. Guess it sums up our season eh?

How the heck did we win the Prezzy!?

Excited to watch the red carpet. Always my favourite part :)

If Karlsson doesn't win the Norris it will be a complete joke. Lidstrom won it a couple of years ago with a -1 +/- on the season...
