Should help Hank as he is the only Eastern Conference goalie in there. Hope the votes in the West are split between Niemi and Bob.

The general managers vote for the Vezina. Did Holmgren vote for Bob? Don't think so.

Bobrovsky doesn't deserve it.

Could make a solid case for Crawford and Rask, too. But they both have far superior teams playing in front of them so I guess GMs took that into account.

No surprise on any of the finalists. Any one would really be a solid pick. I have a suspicion Henke takes it again.

Good on Hank. His play down the stretch probably sealed his nomination.

Bobrovsky deserves to win...he had a great year and was even better down the stretch...but you never know, Hank may get some votes on name alone.

Wouldn't it be something if Bob won. The guy the Flyers who's biggest issue going back the Legion of Doom era has been goaltending got rid of.

Agreed. Even though he has only won once he is in the conversation and is a finalist virtually every year.

Bob was impressive, but the Jackets didn't make the playoffs, does that count for something?

No goalie ever won the Vezina when their team misses the playoffs. will this year be the first?

My Rangers homerism refuses to acknowledge the excellent seasons put up by scrub 1 and scrub 2.

Crown the King!

good thing the Flyers traded Bobrovsky although they were stupid to do so if the Flyers kept Bobrovsky and became their #1 maybe they would have made the playoffs.... Bryzgalov has been bad this year and a distraction.. good luck with that....

I know it never happens. I don't think that's necessarily fair though. It's like when the baseball writers fixated on W-L record when voting for the Cy Young. You can be the best at your position while playing on a ****** team. Again, this is something Henke knows all too well!

The few GMs I asked about their Vezina vote all had Bobrovsky and Niemi on their ballot but the 3rd name varied...

I love Hank but truthfully I think this one should go to Bob.

If the essential stats were the same across 82 games, or if CBJ made the playoffs this season I think Bob wins this.

Right or wrong, I think the out-of-conference voters will be a little hesitant to vote for a guy in lieu of having an exceptional but fluke season (not saying he's a fluke but you know what I mean), and since votes were split 2 west 1 east, I think Henrik's got it wrapped up.

He really had a good season, I was watching many of columbus' games lately..
Philadelphia still is a goalie graveyard.

Hoping for Hank to win it!

Well-deserved. 5th nomination in 8 years. And some of you is persistent in calling him a choker and/or accuses him of having a bad season. Says something about the standard he has set!

In all honesty, Bobrovsky has had the most impressive season. He deserves the award, but Hank is definitely the better player.
