On Wednesday afternoon, the finalists for the Vezina Trophy were announced.
And Corey Crawford, once again, is getting ignored and disrespected.
The finalists this year are Braden Holtby (Washington), Ben Bishop (Tampa) and Jonathan Quick (LA). Finalists are determined by votes from the league’s general managers.
Crawford had a better 5-on-5 save percentage than all three finalists. He led the league with seven shutouts and had a better overall save percentage than Quick.
With all due respect to Quick’s very good season, the GMs got this one wrong.
