16 year old Sam Reinhart named WHL rookie of the year. He had 62 points in his first full season with the club. Wow.

No surprise here. 2014 looks like a good year for the W with Virtanen and Reinhart.

Oilers prospect Tyler Bunz named as WHL goalie of the year. I called him the top goalie in the league all season and he showed it.

The biggest shock of the event for me is Petrovic winning top D over Brenden Kichton. Besides that, nothing was overly shocking.

Probably because his team was expected to be good. Conacher's wasnt.

Was Tri-City not expected to be good!? I don't thnk anyone expected the Oil Kings to win the East let alone have the best record in the WHL.

I'm sure the 2 nominees were very deserving, but I don't think Laxdall or Steve Hamilton get enough credit for how well this team has done. As an Oil Kings season ticket holder from day 1, the difference behind the bench now from the Steve Pleau era is beyond night and day!!

I'm not saying you don't have a valid opinion here, so I don't see what all the ?!?!?! stuff is about.

I never said anything about Tri-City. Conacher is the coach of Regina and he was the East's top coach nominee. I was simply giving you reasoning as to why Conacher was nominated over Laxdall...

I realize that. I was just responding to the reason that you gave for Laxdall not getting consideration in the East, in that Edmonton was expected to do well and Regina wasn't. I simply mentioned Tri-City because Hiller did win and I think his team was expected to do well. I have no problem with him winning, I think he is an excellent coach. I'm just disappointed Laxdall and Hamilton don't, IMO, get enough credit. As a coach myself, when you watch the OK's play these past 2 seasons, you can really tell the difference that coaching has made for this organization and it's progression.

The Ams did not get much consideration prior to season.

I think most pundits had them pegged as a middle of division and conference kind of team. Most people had Portland winning the division if I remember correctly (and they almost did).

The Ams had big question marks in goal with Owsley being traded. Virtually no name defense, other than Zach Yuen who was a mid-round pic (3rd or 4th I think). A fast group of forwards who would score some goals, but probably not enough to overcome the likely weak defense. The Ams only had two NHL drafted players on the roster.

Fast forward to April and now it doesn't seem so surprising. You could argue that's more Bob Tory's doing than Hiller's, but I know the boys love playing for him.

I do think the Ams take a step back next year (losing 3 - 100 pt players) but almost the whole defense will be back and if Bob can add a couple goal scorers and Comrie plays up to his potential they could certainly be in the mix again.
