  1. No criticism, just curiosity: Does anyone know if it is “normal” to nominate for the award, someone who has announced end of playing career?

  2. Great guy to nominate .
    Andrew Shaw has given his all to the sport of hockey.
    Mutt was a key player on Chicago`s Cup winning teams .

  3. Good for Shaw, happy for him. Uncle Bill i think he is desrving and not out of ordinary, not sure if it has happened before or not but wouldn’t surprised if there was.. The award is about what he has persevered through and dedication shown, not what he will do in the future I guess, so his announcing his retirement shouldn’t be a factor not to nominate him

  4. I liked Andrew’s gritty play when I saw him w/Ice Hogs , was so happy he made it to the Blackhawks ! He is a great choice for The Masterson Award ! He was fearless in the corners , behind the net or if someone went after a teammate !
    Andrew I wish you the best at whatever you do in the future ! I’m sure you will always support Hockey by coaching or teaching ! ???

  5. Montreal fans I know said Andrew Shaw was the best player on the team and were upset Andrew was traded to Chicago.

    Seabrook again is pushed aside. That’s okay.

    Its disappointing to see Shaw try and come back only to be blatantly cheap shotted. Course when hes also your toughest player what else to expect.

    I don’t know how you could have seen Andrew Shaw play for your favorite team and not be a fan.
