  1. I just can’t understand the thinking of the voters. I thought the objective of hockey was to win games. Compare Boston and Chicago for the just completed season – ignore the payoffs, if you like. Then ask which player had the greatest impact – focused on the Selke criteria – in producing winning hockey. Toews wins and it is not even close. The vote should be public so we can see exactly who the idiots are that contribute to the lunacy of this result.

  2. That’s not right. It should have been close between the three in 14 but with those teams not even making the playoffs and Toews having better stats/facts in every category then those two. That’s not right.

    Whatever. To moar important things.

  3. ok Bergy beat toews… bs but whatever… Bergy is a hell of a player, im ok with that…

    BUT BACKES OVER HOSSA? someone explain that to me?

  4. Shouldn’t they stop bothering to vote and just make the trophies based on stats which is pretty much all that happens anyway:

    Hart – most points or dominant goalie
    Selke – highest face-off % with lots of points
    Norris – most points by a defenseman
    Lady Byng – fewest penalty minutes with lots of points
    Messier –
    Jack Adams – team that didn’t make the playoffs last year but did this year
    GMOY (how is this not called the Pollack trophy?) – team that crapped out last year but made a deep run in the playoff this year

    Maybe for the Lady Byng, Hudler should win that until he retires if he keeps giving speeches like that. Check out the video if you haven’t seen it.

  5. Pretty obvious who only watches Blackhawks games. The fact that Kopitar received so few votes should be more bothersome than anything.

  6. Bergeron is a great player and the vote was close, but I do personally believe there is an East Coast bias, since that is where most of the writers who vote are based.

    And for Backes to finish ahead of Hoss, and that is two years in a row. We all know this is not all about the players abilities, so no suprise for me really.

  7. Have to take these awards with a grain of salt. Look at the Jack Adams award, Q didn’t even get one vote, someone awarded a vote to Randy Carlyle. So there you have it.
