So is anyone taking tomorrow's game? If not, I can do it again.

So, what's your decision?

I'd like to hypothetically claim Minnesota's first game next week if that hypothetical game hypothetically happens.

I gave you permission on twitter. Gilles that is.

Also, hypothetically, if we match up with the Ducks...hypothetically...I'll take game two. Hypothetically of course. Purely hypothetical.

Alright guys instead of doing a simple "This guy wins the GDT season" I figured we could make some awards. All names are tentative and I am willing to accept suggestions on both names and other awards:

The Lemaire Trophy: Most GDTs made during the regular season

The Bruno Trophy: Longest win streak of GDTs during the regular season

The Thelen Trophy: Worst loss of the regular season

The Heart Trophy: Best single GDT of the regular season as voted by their peers

The King's Trophy: Highest Winning % of the regular season(must have claimed more than 3 games in lockout season, 5+ in normal season)

The Sheppard Trophy: Best new GDT maker (Nominees are Engebretson, Gaps, Giles Ferrell, HDZx, INTOTHEVOID, Jaykay, Lapa, Randy BoBandy, SportsFan1, Timothy Freitag, TZM, Victorious Secret)

Everybody like those? Any other suggestions? I'd like to keep the total number of trophies between 6-8 if possible so there aren't too many out there. If you guys want to start voting on some(The Heart and Sheppard) you certainly can.

EDIT: I don't like King's Trophy and was trying to do something similar to the President's Trophy(Best Regular Season in the NHL). Any suggestions?

Hm, kind of wish you'd created these awards last season, considering I've had writers block this year. It's been over a year since I posted my last GDTs.

I feel like I deserve something for having the worst record of the season.

Sounds fun, I'm up for voting.

Also, unless we have the GDT records from previous years, we could start a Lifetime Achievement Award in a couple years. We could name it "The GopherState One-Man GDT Memorial Award" for outstanding performance over a GDT-creating career.

Not the biggest fan of the Thelen.

As far as King's Trophy renaming suggestions go, the Fans' Trophy (since #1 on the Wild is retired for the fans).

The idea I have is something rather silly. But I also need another idea!

Feel free to call for game 3-4.

That's the ones we will use in the playoffs board.

I'm just calling game 4 for now. I *MAY* call game 3, depending on what goes down in my brain and on the ice.

I'd say do not call more than one playoff game at a time.

And i'll go through and update all the scores and claims and all that tomorrow night once i get back to my laptop.

I only have my iPod and it is really hard to update the tables with hotlinking and all that.

Since I hypothetically called Game 1 before it was a reality, I'm still claiming Game 1.

I'll only call game three if I already have game 4's GDT ready and have enough to work with that I will be able to have a GDT for game three ready ahead of time as well. Considering how long it has taken me to get just ONE idea this year, it will take quite a burst of creativity for me to get a 2nd one in so short a timespan.

So Gopher still has Game 1, Avder you have Game 3, but you also called Game 2 earlier this thread. For now, I think it should be one or the other. 2 or 4?

EDIT: Also added the trophies to the OP. Everyone feel free to vote on the Heart for best GDT and GopherState mail-in for worst/laziest GDT. Exceptional/noteworthy ones are referenced in the "notes" section. Or you can go through on others if you'd like.

I called game 4. If I have something extra in time for game 3 and no one else has called it by then, I'll do it.
