The rookie scoring leader should at the very least have been a finalist as he has been the last 63 years. As for who should win the Calder, I'm biased and think it should have been Yakupov, but would have understood Gallagher, Huberdeau, or Brodin. But last year? RNH tied for the points lead with almost 20 less GP? It's a travesty that he didn't win last year.
Yup, last year was a complete screw job. It didn't make sense. Even though Landeskog played 20 more games they ended up with the same point totals! It isn't even like Landeskog scored 3 or 4 more points while playing those 20 extra games. It made no sense. It was like they were trying to say durability was a factor, but that has never been a consideration in the past. It was a travesty...
Again, we agree. Yakupov should have been a finalist for the Calder. Thanks for understanding my point that if Gallagher wins he had as much of a case as Yakupov, though. Muchly appreciated!
