Then there is Phaneuf, Suter, and other defensive prospects.
Don't forget goaltenders like Lehtonen, Toivonen, and Ward.
Again I agree - the competition is as stiff as its ever been, but you still have to put up the points - the Calder isn't given out based on potential, draft position, or hype. And most of those other players aren't going to be playing with guys like Spezza and Heatley. I'll list Lehtonen, Crosby, Ovechkin and Carter as inside favorites, but if Bochenski lands that roster position, I'd say he has a solid shot at being a 5th on that list of possible candidates. Again, we're talking darkhorse here...
