Solid thread.

You know the voting's a joke anyway, man. The media's just got it out for us, and definitely Carcillo even more

Am I the only person who thinks of the Lady Byng as mildly insulting?

It's like "Hey, you score a lot of points, but you still play like a nancy. here's an award. Give your nuts a tug and maybe you could win an award that isn't named after a chick."

I kind of agree with you. But, you aren't necessarily being a ***** if you win the award. It's not like Pavel Datsyuk never lays hits (though I don't think it is a staple of his game), and I rarely watch the Red Wings but I don't think he's a perimeter player who shies a way from areas where people are likely to be physical. Of course he is skilled and fast so I guess he can avoid a lot of that.





That being said it wouldn't be the award I'd really want, but it isn't a bad thing.

Here's a discussion on it from the history of hockey board that I remembered from a while ago. Of course I don't know how accurate what people are saying in the thread about the past is but yeah...

Quote:
The award needs to be re-defined, badly. Or at least be awarded the way it was meant to be, like in the Original 6 era where it went to great players who played the game hard, the way it was meant to be played, and did so cleanly.

Right now, it's a wimp award to the soft player with the best pointsIM ratio, and not really a feather in the cap at all of the player who wins it. The word 'competitiveness' or 'grit' needs to be inserted into the award definition alongside clean play and skill level. Mike Grier led the league in hits one year while posting 30 PIM and would have been a great choice. Jay Pandolfo is a Selke contender who puts up ~10 PIM/year. And of course, the biggest travesty of all is that it seems impossible for a defender to win it - Niklas Lidstrom should have won 6 or 8 Byngs already in his career.

And take the 'Lady' out of the award and re-name it the Byng Trophy ... giving the trophy a female name doesn't help matters.

I AM SHOCK AND APPALLED. The obvious bias against the Flyers is completely clear now.

Money grab!

They're not marketing in Philadelphia because they already know we sell jerseys.

Carcillo should write a letter. He's not marketable.

This thread made my smile instantly.

I'm thinking about making a little Dan Carcillo video in the summer when I have some time. Already got the song picked out:


It's german, but the song fits Carcillo so perfectly. Googletranslated lyrics:

El Cattivo riding alone through the night
He killed two days ago a child
Now El Cattivo is on the run
The child's father is looking for him
As the villain in the morning basks
He discovered the pursuer on the horizon
He lurks in a small forest
And shoots him down from behind

Chorus:
And he smiles because he knows
Evil always triumphs
Yes this is what a cowboy must be like
Dirty, cowardly and mean
Heja - ho

In the evening, the villain comes in a small town
He attacks two old wives because he has no money
He gambles away his booty in the Saloon
Then he gets in the face of Ray Charles
At night, he visits the brothel
And there he becomes a witness to a brawl
As one of the contestants falls to the ground
He kills him as fast as he can
And then he steals all his money

Chorus

I 100% agree. If I somehow were awarded this trophy, I'd come out the next season with the goal of fighting at least once in every game just to make sure I didn't get it again.

Yeah, I've always kind of felt this way too. I mean, if you are going to give out an award like that, how about at least not naming it something like the "Lady Byng." The guy already feels kind of like a nancy winning the award, you don't have to really drive it home by putting "Lady" in the title of his trophy. I realize that given the history behind it, it's quite appropriately named, but still...come on.

I think they just wanted to give someone else a chance to win it this year. They figure Car Bomb will be pulling them in for years to come.

If it was up to me I'd nominate Carcillo for every NHL award. Even the Vezina.

I had some time today so I did the video I was talking about.


Even did subtitles for english lyrics, though they are a bit out of sync.
