No big surprise. All worthy candidates who spent the full season in the bigs.

Anyway, if Raycroft won it maybe you don't want to win it as a goalie. It's got cooties.

Not surprised, since Price didn't deserve a nomination in light of those guys. Kane will win it.

Andrei Kostitsyn just as much.

I think each of these players would be at least nominees had they won prominent positions out of camp and been on teams that were more desperate for them to evolve quickly.

Price rebounded, but you need to consider the entire year. Price was the best rookie in the 2nd half of the NHL season, bar none. However, when you add the 1st half, he wasn't good enough to crack the Top 3.
Toews missed around 20Games. Why should he be in the top 3?..
If you need to consider the entire year. I don't see how coming back from ''poor play'' to steal the #1 job of an all-star goalie on the #1seed in the East is not more deserving than a 64GP 54pts season.

If we add the 1st half a big part of which Toews was injured..i don't see how he deserves it.
If we're gonna take everything into consideration as you seem to do, why not say Backstrom played with Ovechkin all season, a guy that scored 68G..
Why not say Kane and Toews can play 40min a game, there's simply nobody in CHI.

Im not defending Price..i dont think he deserved the Calder..not even close. But i don't see how Toews is easily cracking top 3 but Price isnt deserving of it.

41Games for a rookie goalie is huge.

Kane should win it

Backstrom 2nd

Toews 3rd due to missed games

Frankly I would put Price right there at a tie for third with Toews. Price's influence in fewer games has been just as big for the Habs. Being goalie is a lot like being catcher in baseball. They have an effect on the game larger than their stats indicate

my vote goes to Backstrom, anyone who watched reg. and playoffs Caps games know he's way more that OV sidekick.

41 games, most down the playoff stretch drive, is even bigger!

Since no one said it yet, Malkin + Staal, to answer your question.

I agree with most that Kane should win it. Backstorm turned it on late, but it seemed like every time he would have a great game, Kane would match. And Backstrom had Ovechkin whereas Kane provided a lot of offense on his own, though of course, all 3 nominees are great players.

Too bad Gainey didn't trade Huet sooner to give Price more exposure. Good he decided to trade Huet or we might not be discussing the second round.

Price probably knew he wasn't in the running. Anyway, it doesn't matter that much. We know how good Price is.

Voters just look at the stats and not the impact the rookie had on their team and in the league.
Agree with you 100%
Isn't rookie of the year nominated by the media? We all know the media is full of guys who THINK they know hockey but really don't.

Really not surprised. Had he played another 10-15 games and won 75% then he just might have been there.

Good one. As did Raycroft. Look at them both now. I actually wish Rask was ready for the NHL this year.
