I disagree about the President's Trophy. Being the best team in an 82 game season is an accomplishment. Whether they're knocked out in the first round, or the Stanley Cup Finals, it's hard to take away the fact that during the grind of an 82 game season no one was better.
I agree about the Lady Byng. Especially the William M. Jennings. Why a team stat is awarded to goaltender(s) is beyond me. It's the same reason I don't like when people look at wins (a team stat) when evaluating a goaltender and his performance.
I think the Gold Glove is a nice award too. Defense in baseball cannot be overlooked. And it doesn't just go to the best hitter. Omar Vizquel was never a good hitter and he was an 11 time gold glove winner. It just so happens, that sometimes, yes sometimes, a great hitter is also great in the field (Ken Griffey Jr. comes to mind right away).
