Wow, I didn't even realize your avatar lol. I was looking at the face and I was like is that Walter White? My favorite show!

Hey thanks, but it is one of the many. Yours has become iconic. Do not change it, and seeing as to how superstitious you are, really do not change it! Lol....

You're right. I actually did nominate Crew though. But truthfully YOU Yourself are name I forgot among many others. Mitch I was going to nominate for the Rambo award or something where they dont post often but when they do are great reads.

There's a ton of good posters, perhaps I wasn't qaulified to nominate now that I think about it, I'm too new and bad with names.

You ALL deserve awards.

You already reserved some of my slots. I think I cast the first vote for these a month before MM made this, your name being the ticket, but truly there are a few folks who do a great job keeping us informed of prospects.

I miss Mitch expressing grumpiness over having to say something again, then writing a novel. Hahahaaaa.....

Awww man, no love for the meteorologists and/or weather nerds?

Damn



I really like the idea of this kind of thing as long as its lighthearted and fun... Especially if it culminated In a sort of get together where little certificates or awards were given out, that'd be really cool but perhaps beyond the scope of the board

Yea I had the Bazinga avatar, changed it at the start of the run were on so now dont wanna change back. When I joined the site years ago I didn't really think much about my name, as this was the first forum I joined, ever lol. If thought about changing my name but that's kinda weak, no?

And my post was 100% sarcastic. Plenty of good posters here to nominate. I'm just here for the chicks.

"I know what you're thinking. 'Did he get six surgeries or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is Rick DiPietro, the most overrated goalie in the game, and would blow your lead with one giveaway, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

Rollercoaster Award – There can be only one. If you need to ask, you haven't been paying attention.

Chicken Little Award - TBD. I think you need a good year or two of the club doing well to track that. Count this as half a year.

Bill Masterton Memorial Poster Award - I haven't been here long enough to know who came back, and who is the same old sad sack.

Woodward and Bernstein – Camper. In between his "Martin for President" posts, he also has some insight that suggests better than normal knowledge about the club. Or he knows his stuff, which I suspect is true, and simply puts 2 & 2 together better than everyone else. Either way, you all need to read his posts more.

Kevin Connolly – Bunk Moreland & Trumanperro.

Jim Carrey Award – Law, for the greatest humorous GDT of all time.

Steve Jobs Award – Dare I say it.... Bluechip Bonzo for his unfaltering love of all things Garf and Petro. Since adding Wang to his rah rah resume (I meant to do that, it was not a stutter) it has to be him.

Bryan Trottier Award – ITM, for his constant info and vids on the prospects. But there are many others like D. Rex who drop info as well in there. My hat is off to all the guys who lay out the reports in Prospects, Draft, etc. threads.

You should have a Thread Ho award, btw...

This is the DUMBEST thread ever. Probably cause I'm not nominated for anything. Not even most annoying poster or Nostradamus?

Mods, close this dopey thread. It just alienates some. Why can't we just post, give thoughts and leave it at that?

For if we give "awards" to posters for mostest this and bestest that then let's have a thread bashing certain posters too. (Even it up for both sides)

And nobody wants/needs that.

For most insightful posts, I'm going with redbull and mitchy. Throughout the years, Mitchy reminds me of someone who is laughing at everyone posting in the GDT as he collects his thoughts throughout the game and then lays out a wall of well thought out text, after the emotion has died down (and the Guinness?).

For poster of the year, Degeneration Rex and ITM have been dominating the prospects and BPST threads and it is really appreciated.

Truman also needs more love in here.

We also need a Trottier award for liking the Islanders for so long.
And then switching to the Devils at the wrong time.


Also want to give a shout out to LAIslanderFan, since he and I follow this team from LA. Even though it means I have to tape every game, shut off my phone, watch it 3 hours after it's over every night (or get plastered at 10am for the matinee games on the weekend), and fly 3000 miles to see my first playoffs game at the ol' barn.

Not going to get into war, but that's your opinion and so far your the only that feels this way. I don't even feel like I should be nominated for anything, yet I made the thread. It was meant for fun, sorry you don't feel that way.

I may be the only one that wrote it....but others might think it without saying.

It just seems very high schoolish. (Most likely to.)

Yeah I'm also upset that they removed the newcomer award. I had such high hopes... Just kidding, I think it's not a necessary thing to do, but it's fine.

I nominated you for the Sheldon Lake award going to the poster you feel is most likely bringing a dead hooker in his trunk to and from games with a collection of stolen negligee in his glovebox but who puts aside his demented foibles for the love of the team.

13th floor and LA Isles fan, PM me next season when the only three sensible people not switching to Devil fandom in the People's Republik of Kalifornia have a Kings or Mighty Emilios game if the Isles visit. Well, unless you're in Hippyland up north....

I agree. But, instead, I'm hoping that there's an award for the snottiest/most pretentious poster. I want to win. I think I've been nominated.

I had you in mind when I recommended establishing the Grey Poupon award in an earlier thread
