I really want to see Phaneuf take it home, just because I love him as a player. Chara I dislike for obvious reasons. Lidstrom I have alot of respect for, but I am just sick of seeing him every year with the Norris in his hands.
I know i'm going to sound like Don Cherry, but let's see a good ol Canadian boy bring it home.
Might as well just give Ovechkin, Lidstrom and Brodeur their awards now and skip that cheesy CBC/NHL awards show. I'm almost embarrased to be canadian watching that crap.
What does Brodeur get an award for? Nabokov had more wins and better stats than Marty had this year so he should win the Vezina.
Unless they are giving Brodeur an award for being the biggest baby for not shaking Avery's hand or and award for the league putting in a rule because of Marty then I don't know why he would be getting an award.
But Lidstrom definitely should win the Norris....Chara didn't do enough to deserve it and I think Lidstrom had a better season than Phaneuf...IMO....so he should win.
