Pacioretty had his own serious injury to recovery from. It was March 8, 2011 when he collided with the partition at the end of visiting bench at Bell Centre. The hit left Pacioretty with a fracture vertebrae and a concussion that ended his season.
That damn evil partition. How dare that partition do that to him...I can't believe that he just collided with it. No outside influence at all.
Disagree with that one. The Lady Byng is pointless, the Masterson is well worth winning.
Instead of the useless Bing Trophy, they should have a trophy for THE BEST OVERALL PLAYER (whatever his team's standings) , which would be different than the MOST VALUBLE PLAYER (to a guy who really made a difference on his team's performances and standing).
They should also add a trophy for the BEST DEFENSIVE DEFENSEMAN.
