The League needs to add a yearly Offensive Defenceman award - the same way the Selke is given to a Defensive Forward.

Just for conversation, let's say it's called the "Bobby Orr Award", given to the top offensive defenceman. Drew Doughty, Mike Green, Dan Boyle, etc are all fighting it out this year.

Then, you give the Norris to the Top Defenceman. Keith, Kaberle, Webber, Pronger, Phaneuf etc all get votes.

Almost makes too much sense.



edit: maybe it's time to update my Purple Reign avatar???

Welcome back! Haha.

There is "official talk" or so I've heard of changing the Norris to the Orr.


Did you see that play that Doughty made when the puck hopped over his stick and ended up getting by him? Instead of trying to skate it down, he dove - instinctively dove, and steered the puck deep enough down in the zone to prevent a breakaway.

During Doughty's draft year, I questioned his hockey sense in his own zone. I was wrong. But right at the same time. He does not have traditional hockey sense, he's an elite instinctive player just like Bobby Orr.

It's crazy to watch this kid.

I forsee Simmonds playing on top 2 lines and putting up 40+ goals 50+ assists, fighting pims, and one of the league leaders in hits and plus/minus. It's bit of a reach but it's far from crap.
PM me the name of the herb your smoking and which dispensary you acquired it from!

Any of you guys want to take up a collection for me NOT to buy a Simmonds or Doughty jersey?

That's a penalty shot, not a shootout.

You should rock an Ivanans jersey.
