In all do respect I disagree, just wait till you play big bodies like the Blues or Bruins. I watched the game yesterday and Schultz looked very good, but I would put money on him struggling against players who play with their body.

That's not necessarily true. A forward can have a good year and still lose it to a goaltender who has a strong season (Yzerman/Barrasso 1984, Fedorov/Belfour 1991, Richards/Nabokov 2001). A forward can have a good year and lose to a defenseman that has hype surrounding him, even if the forward is the better player (Zetterberg/Jackman 2003).

So laying it out there based on position is just silly. Especially as Schultz is more comparable in style to offensive wizard Visnovsky (3rd Calder 2001, 4th in rookie scoring) than he is to defensive plugger Jackman (won 2003, T18th in rookie scoring).

I've been saying Tarasenko since last year. Hopefully he keeps tearing it up so I don't look stupid. I think Granlund and Silfverberg will be the runners up, with Huberdeau and Hamilton not far behind.

Granted it's only been two games but my god has Tarasenko ever been incredible. He's put Granlund and many other prospects to shame so far. Unless Schultz or Yakupov step up big time, I don't see how Tarasenko doesn't win (aside from getting injured of course). Huberdeau has an outside chance of winning it too.

Granlund has been playing ppg-pace too for the past two seasons in a mens league, just like Tarasenko, seems like most people are forgetting that.

Although looking at past Calder winners, in the past 10 years only one center has won it, Malkin. It's much easier for wingers to win this, since they don't need to focus that much to the defensive side of the game.

Yeah, and so far in the first two games where it matters, Granlund has absolutely nothing on Tarasenko.

HFB transports welcomes you on the Calder hype train, coming from Huberdeau, Yakupov, Baertschi, Kreider, Schultz, and currently located in Tarasenko. Departure in approximately 10 games, heading to *insert future leader in rookie scoring*.

Were is Dougie Hamilton played 24 minutes last night, had a few scoring chances has not put anything through yet but he is close, I would say a short season benifits a Dman, forwards probly are not going to put up eye poping numbers right of the bat, except Tarasanko.

Might as well wrap the Calder up and start mailing it to Schultz.

Taresenko is at 64% and that might be less than the number of votes he gets in winning the Calder

He has had 2 great seasons in the KHL, that and his age and team situation makes him the winner barring injury IMO.

Conacher or Tarasenko. The optimist/homer in me says Conacher, the realist in me says it's too early.

Conacher now tied with Tarasenko in scoring.

Conacher was the AHL leading scorer last year/MVP and the leader of a team that went unbeaten for 28 straight games and won the Calder Cup.

I've been watching quite a few games. Most impressed with- Tarasenko (obviously), Coancher, Huberdeau, J Schultz. They all seem to have the talent as well as the opportunity required to win the calder. Granlund is very talented but I will need to see more of him to make a fair assessment. Hamilton is incredibly solid and a future number 1 D-man, however I doubt he is able to make a splash in the calder race.

My prediction of most likely to win the Calder (not necessarily best players)
1. Tarasenko
2. Conacher
3a J. Schultz
3b Huberdeau

i concur with this, although not sold on huberdeau, seem's like he might be streaky to start his career, just my opinion though.

i wouldn't be shocked if justin schultz still stole it though.
