Yakupov was also a -4 to Gallagher's +10. They both had the same number of hits, and Gallagher blocked more shots. Gallagher was also instrumental in helping his team go from worst in the East to 2nd in the East. So, YES, I do believe that Gallagher is equally worthy of the Calder trophy as Yakupov. The Calder goes to the best overall rookie, not ONLY the rookie with the most points (which is why defencemen and Goalies are eligible for the Calder). Now you can enjoy your break that I willingly give to you.
