It'll be Lundqvist, but Lundqvist's shutout total SHOULD disqualify him, but it won't. I truly think Niemi was the best goalie in the NHL this season and deserves it, but it probably won't end up that way.
Shutout totals shouldnt matter.
In any case Im really happy for Niemi I hope he at least get named to the 2nd All-Star team.
Nemo has the wins and minutes played going for him. (And good GAA, save %)
Realize that this is voted on by the 30 GMs (not writers, broadcasters).
It's great that he's been recognized for his hard work this year (and during the lockout).
(I'm still waiting to hear what's happening with the "NHL Awards" event. All I know is that it was scheduled for Vegas before the lockout, but not on the schedule for events anywhere last I looked at the NHL calendar.)
You gotta figure Columbus's GM will vote for Bob and DW will vote for Niemi. Dale Tallon (Florida's current GM and the Cup winning GMof Chicago) might vote for Niemi. I highly doubt Philly's GM will vote for Bob
