Flyers Hand Out Annual Team Awards

In a ceremony prior to Tuesday night's Flyers-Florida Panthers game at the Wachovia Center, the Philadelphia Flyers announced the winners of the team’s 2008-09 awards: the Bobby Clarke Trophy for most valuable player; the Barry Ashbee Trophy for most outstanding defenseman; the Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy for most improved player from the previous season; the Yanick Dupre Memorial Award for best rapport with the media; the Gene Hart Memorial Award for the player who plays with the most “heart” as adjudged by the Philadelphia Flyers Fan Club; and the Toyota Cup, based on “Star of the Game” selections.

Center Mike Richards has won the Bobby Clarke Trophy as the team’s most valuable player, as selected by a panel of sportscasters and sportswriters. Richards leads the Flyers in assists (48), shorthanded goals (7 – 1st in NHL), power-play points (32) and plus/minus (+24), and ranks second in points (78). He leads all forwards in average time on ice (21:48). It is the second consecutive year and second time overall Richards has won the award, which was presented by club general manager Paul Holmgren.

Kimmo Timonen is the winner of the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the team’s most outstanding defenseman, as voted by a panel of sportscasters and sportswriters. Timonen leads all Flyers defensemen with 42 points, 39 assists, and blocked shots (159). He is second on the team in average time on ice (24:31). It is the second consecutive year and second time overall Timonen has won the award, which was presented by Danny Ashbee, Barry’s son.

Forward Darroll Powe has won the Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy as the Flyer who has most improved from the previous season, as voted by his teammates. Powe, a rookie, has six goals and five assists for 11 points and 31 penalty minutes in 56 games this season. In his first full year as a professional in 2007-08, Powe had nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points and 133 penalty minutes in 76 games for the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms. Club general manager Paul Holmgren presented the award.

Timmonen and Carter could both be argued for the MVP of the whole team, but Richards is valuable for his play and leadership.

I have a man crush on Darrel Powe and Claude Giroux, so I love that pick of Powe

I think Timonen should have been MVP, outside of that they got it right.

Seems like they like to spread it around. Timonen is easily the best defenseman, so they didn't want to double up on awards.

I'd have had Richards 3rd for MVP behind Timonen and Carter.

Carter has been our best forward/player on more nights than anyone else. Timonen is th eplayer we could least afford to lose.

I'd also say Kimmo is our MVP. When he's out of the lineup we usually suck.

Hmm, Kimmo deserved MVP for sure. But he got an award, so oh well.

When I saw Kimmo being given an award I assumed it was MVP....best defenseman kinda goes without saying.

I liked Powe as the pick for the Pelle Lindbergh trophy. I pretty much figured the rest, that was the only one i wasnt sure of, but i liked the pick.


When are they gonna rename the Barry Ashbee trophy the Eric Dejardins trophy? he won it like 72 times.

Anyone else kind of surprised that this is Kimmo's lowest goal total ever in the NHL? Tied for second highest in assists though and probably would have even broken that if he wasn't out for those games. Still can I guess. 7 consecutive seasons of 40+ points.

Also, looking at the stats I was surprised to see that Briere has managed 21 points in 25 games and is just a -3.

Timonen is the most important skater on the team. If that is the criteria for winning the award then he should get it. The defense unit would be dreadful if he was lost for a significant period of time. He could be handed the award in preseason based on those factors. However, it is diffcult to compare and contrast forwards to defensemen.

Richards is all things inspiration and the heart of the team.

But Carter is my choice as this team's MVP. His numbers inside the numbers are incredibly impressive most importantly game-winning goals and the team's record when he scores.

I don't think either of the above three possible selections is without merit but I'd opt for Carter.
