2010 Brandon Bochenski Award: FOLIGNO WINS
 
vote for the 2010 Brandon Bochenski award winner here.


I will not try to argue to you what the Bochenski award means, but keep in mind that the original intent was for it to be the sens board's concensus for the best player in the preseason, and what bochenski went on to do in his career did not originally factor in.

from the original presentation in 2008:

Campoli and Foligno are right down to the wire, but I'm going to give it to Foligno on the basis of his ridiculous shooting %. Also on the basis of Campoli looked like crap most of the time he was on the ice and anyone watching pretty much agrees.

Based on the original definition you've got, and not the definition I assumed, it should be Spezza's though. By far Ottawa's best player.

SelleckStache 10-04-2010 07:02 PM

HM to Chris Kelly. He had a fantastic preseason. Often the best Sen on the ice.

Emerica 10-04-2010 07:04 PM

Campoli.

MatthewT 10-04-2010 07:10 PM

foligno

Afro Thunder* 10-04-2010 07:12 PM

Campoli, because he will return to his old crappy self. That's what the Bochenski award is all about.

The Expert 10-04-2010 07:15 PM

Gotta be Foligno.

Ugh, but the thing is, that's not what the award is.

Description: This trophy is awarded to the player whose played with a level of excellence above that of his teammates during the preseason alone as a member of the Ottawa Senators.

Foligno, then Smith, then far far away, Campoli.

Campoli,

Foligno didnt play as well in his last couple games when the competition got better

1.6 ppg defenseman. He played at a 131 point pace. Led in +/- and was usually among the leaders in icetime for the team. Furthermore, anybody who says he played worse defensively than Karlsson or even Gonchar is suffering from a case of confirmation bias.

Basically if Karlsson or Lee had done what he did for those 5 games this wouldn't even be a competition.

ReginKarlssonLehner 10-04-2010 09:41 PM

When Alfredsson says: "I wish i could do that"

Then.....

I still voted Campoli cause he was a man on a mission.

:whaaa?: LMFAO!

The Bochenski Award For Excellence in Unimportance goes to

Chris Campoli.

The Waffler 10-04-2010 10:07 PM

Wow this is close lol

I voted Campoli. Put up points like a true PMD.

SNAPshot 10-04-2010 10:12 PM

Voted for Foligno, but I think I was biased. Campoli gets my respect for sure.

Obviously, I'm happy for all three finalists.

Nabokov20 10-04-2010 10:17 PM

We all know Camps won't produce at the same level and therefore I voted for Foligno. That being said, I never have liked the kid and my opinion is highly biased. Smith was always decent in my eyes.

Gil Gunderson 10-04-2010 11:33 PM

I want Foligno to play like he has this preseason, so I won't vote for him.

Verbatim.

The Chef* 10-04-2010 11:55 PM

Campoli. Cause while he racked up the points, he still sucked.

CanadianHockey 10-05-2010 12:14 AM

I said Foligno in the spirit of the OP's definition of the award.

ElRossoMatt 10-05-2010 04:09 AM

I'll give it to Camps. Leading the NHL in points, seeing him up there with Parise was definitely the biggest achivement of this camp.

M4TR1X 10-05-2010 04:12 AM

I say Nick Foligno on this one.

Caseus 10-05-2010 05:08 AM

Nick Foligno.

LeTigre 10-05-2010 05:24 AM

Foligno.
