Jordan Schroeder. He'll be playing with Dale Weise, the Gretzky of the Netherlands so he'll really rack up points. Not to mention every time he's played on a line with Raymond Raymond gets a hat trick.

Where's Hamilton?

I don't think he'll win, but who knows. Maybe a nomination.

Hamilton has three assists the last two games and is playing top four minutes. I still think Tarasenko wins it.

Tarasenko runs away with it in the end, IMO.

Yep I know. And he's started off quite well. 1G 2A even +/- and 0PIM in his first 3 games.

Do you mean a team like the L.A Kings? I admit he looked a little out of place at the beginning, but he was on fire in the third period and in overtime. Looked scary as well.

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
What the heck is 3A and 3B? I like if Schultz doesn't want to be nominated they can put Huber in there instead? Give me a break, people. Schultz was playing during the last minute of play VS the Kings over much more experienced players like Petry and Whitney. Same with OT. They double shifted his ass till we got that OT winner.

He isn't getting easy minutes like Eberle, Hall and Hopkins were given last year.
As for Not having Yakupov in there, give me a break. That's hilarious. Yes the season has already started and YES Edmonton is always a team that starts hot and fades down the stretch, but the fact remains. The Hemsky/Gagner/Yakupov line has been our best line so far.

VS the kings Yak almost scored that game winner a couple of times. He was also played heavily in key moments of the game.

Hey, they didn't get any points while he was on the ice and if you look as see how many points they usually score against the Oilers, that's totally worthy of the word shutdown.

If a defenceman wins it, does it have to be an offensive defenceman in the mold of Schultz or Karlsson? Seems that way...

If not, Brodin could be in there.

The Sedins got their points against Whitney and Potter.

Tarasenko is definitely the front runner right now but it's only been a week. A lot can change. Schultz has 3 points in 3 games, has an even +/- and is averaging 24 minutes a night. He played 27 minutes against the Kings last night.

Yeah, it looks like Conacher will score a lot. But even if he'll score slightly more than Tarasenko, most of his points will be assists. Tarasenko is much better goal scorer, and this will get him Calder.

Tarasenko, but if Hamilton keeps up his play he SHOULD get a nomination. Kid has been fantastic.

If Tarasenko takes a big dip and Dougie keeps improving game after game (as he has been) he could make it interesting.

Right now though I have Tarasenko pencilled in though.

The odds of two Dmen getting nominated this year are pretty slim. So what's Hamilton doing that makes him a better choice than Schultz?

In think they've both been great. This feels like the Hall vs Seguin argument all over again though. Hamilton is cracking the tougher roster for his 20 mins a night.

Not that it's a knock against Schultz at all, but Hamilton is playing behind Chara and Seidenberg while Schultz had to displace Smid and Whitney. Not even in the same ballpark.

That goes without saying. However, I don't think the voters will care too much about that. If both players have 10 goals/30 points and are +5 at the end of the season, and only one can be nominated, they're going to take the guy playing 25 minutes a night over the guy playing 18 minutes a night. Even if Hamilton was capable of playing 25 minutes a night and looking just as good as Schultz, they'll still vote in the player that actually did it.

It's sort of like RNH vs Landeskog. Would RNH have had more points if he hadn't been injured? Of course....but he didn't have more points.

Hamilton is going to have to be much better offensively to make up for the minutes Schultz has on him and the match ups each player is going against.
