Bob Mckenzie contacted NHL head coaches and asked them to pick one winner and one runner-up in each of six NHL award categories. There were only two requirements: Choose only players in their own conference -- those they've actually seen this season -- and do not pick anyone on their own team. While there are still games to be played, and what happens over the next dozen days could still impact who wins the awards, here are the coach’s (who do not vote on the actual awards) picks:
West:
- Hart Trophy(MVP): 1. Jonathan Toews 2. Ryan Getzlaf
- Calder Trophy(Rookie): 1. Brandon Saad 2. Jonas Brodin
- Vezina Trophy(Goalie): 1. Sergei Bobrovsky 2. Antti Niemi
- Norris Trophy(Dman): 1. Ryan Suter 2. Francois Beauchemin
- Selke Trophy(Defensive F): 1. Jonathan Toews 2. Pavel Datsyuk 3. Anze Kopitar
- Adams Trophy(Coach): 1. Joel Quenneville(CHI) 2. Bruce Boudreau(ANA) 3. Todd Richards(CBJ)


East:
- Hart Trophy(MVP): 1. Sidney Crosby 2. John Tavares 3. Alex Ovechkin
- Calder Trophy(Rookie): 1. Brendan Gallagher 2. Jonathan Huberdeau
- Vezina Trophy(Goalie): 1. Carey Price 2. Tuukka Rask 3. Henrik Lundquist
- Norris Trophy(Dman): 1. P.K. Subban 2. Zdeno Chara 3. Kris Letang
- Selke Trophy(Defensive F): Patrice Bergeron
- Adams Trophy(Coach): 1. Michel Therrien(MTL) 2. Paul MacLean(OTT) 3. Randy Carlyle(TOR)

McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]

How is MacLean not a lock for Jack Adams? No Karlsson, no Spezza, Anderson and Michalek have missed significant time..

:picard:

I'll admit Therrien deserves credit too, but he hasn't had to deal with significant losses throughout the year.

Quenneville has Toews, Sharp, Kane, Hossa, Keith, Seabrooke.... Neither MacLean or Therrien have anything to compete with that lineup.

Who I think should win:

Hart: Ovechkin. Perry won a few years ago simply because of his late seaon push. If Ovi doesn't play otherworldly, the Caps do not make the playoffs.
Calder: Brendan Gallagher.
Vezina: Tukka Rask.
Norris: P.K. Subban
Selke: Jonathan Toews
Adams: Paul Maclean. How could it not? This team has no business being in the playoffs with all their injuries. Paul Maclean deserves the award.

The flashier ones, not the better ones. Saad is a beast producing at over a 50 pt rate, and Brodin already plays well over 20 mins a night

He's playing on the first line with Toews and Hossa, no wonder he's producing a lot. I like Saad, but I would take Callagher, Huberdeau or Galchenyuk over him.

Nothing but as accurate as it gets.

By the way, Columbus needs to make the playoffs in order for them to win any or those awards. If not, they don't deserve it.

 

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

Apparently the coaches don't agree with all these people saying P Kane was more MVP material than Toews.

Completely agree with this list. Except goalie maybe, i havent really looked at the stats but i know rask should be at least a finalist.

That will be a knock against Saad when it comes time for the actual Calder voting. But if you watch Saad play you'll see that he's contributing to that line and often will create plays for Toews and Hossa. It's not a one-way street where only Hossa and Toews are helping Saad. Saad is very agressive and if it wasn't for a slow start he would have ran away with the Calder voting.

But Saad did have a slow start, so overall I think the Calder should go to Jonathan Huberdeau with Saad and Gallagher as the other nominees.

Yeah he's playing on the first line for a reason. He is great defensively and is very strong on the puck, he is the best all around rookie IMO. Long term Galchenyuk and Huberdeau will be better players though.

Saad is getting more of the glory in the west because of being with Toews and Kane... but then he's a forward, so he will get more of the glory even if he was producing at half the rate.

Brodin is turning into the type of D-man you build a team around.. at the old age of 19!? Many top D-men don't develop till years later, and this kid is defending against the top players in the league night in and night out.. and is +7.

But the trophy isn't about who'll be better in 5-10+ years.. so as much as I'd like to see Brodin win it, I know it won't go to him.

Tampa has 2 of the top 3 point scorers in the league this season, yet they are that
far down there in the standings. How is that possible?

McLean should be a lock. Bylsma won the Jack Adams before because he got his injury riddled team into the playoffs.

Ovie should take Hart. Crosby isn't nearly as valuable to the Pens as Ovie is to the Caps.

Bobrovsky should get Vezina. Columbus has no business being in the playoff hunt without him.


It's sad when all the CDCer's in this thread are making more logical award choices than NHL coaches.

I would be pleased as punch if you pressed this green button.

Saad the most complete player out off all the rookies. I'll go into details afterwards.



Brandon Saad
41gp: 9g/15a/24pts (Tied for 4th)
+16 (First for rookies)
8 PIMs (Disciplined)
16:20 TOI (4th for forwards, big role on playoff team)
0:49 SH TOI (7th for forwards with minimum 20gp, Huberdeau, Conacher, Gallagher no where to be seen)
1:29 PP TOI (14th for forwards with minimum 20gp, behind Huberdeau, Conacher, Gallagher)

"He's hungry, he's playing hard and playing fearless," Toews said. "He's showing he's gaining confidence with the puck. With Hoss and I, we're getting better and better as a line. We're keeping the puck down low more, and Saader is showing his work ethic. He's hungry for that first one. We keep working as a line, he's going to get it and we're going to get it going as well."


The rookie has been hot in the last month with six goals and 18 points in his last 16 games. Saad was drafted 43rd overall in the 2011 Draft, a draft that many thought you could get just as good a player in the 45th slot as you could 10th overall. Well, Saad is certainly proving that statement correct as he lines up on the top line with Jonathan Toews. He deserves to be in the conversation for the Calder Trophy and based on his play of late
