Fasth would have been a great rookie of the year pick... but he's like 40 years old and doesn't qualify. Holtby isn't a rookie either according to the qualification criteria.

I'm not surprised at the nominations. I figured the pair of Oilers would be snubbed and sure enough, neither were nominated.

Gallagher will win it... certainly an easy pick over Huberdeau and Saad.

Yak will be a great player and so will Schultz. I have no problems with once again seeing no Calder in Edmonton... many great rookies have gone on to have excellent careers without winning any silverware in their rookie campaign.
