It's like "Hey, you score a lot of points, but you still play like a nancy. here's an award. Give your nuts a tug and maybe you could win an award that isn't named after a chick."
Yeah, I've always kind of felt this way too. I mean, if you are going to give out an award like that, how about at least not naming it something like the "Lady Byng." The guy already feels kind of like a nancy winning the award, you don't have to really drive it home by putting "Lady" in the title of his trophy. I realize that given the history behind it, it's quite appropriately named, but still...come on.
