Looks like it's going to be Vigneault to lead the Rangers. I can live with that.

There's no way Sid wins the Masterson because Harding should and probably will win.

Shero has a good chance to win, but I'm mad at him and don't want him to
Crosby has the Lindsey for sure.

I'd be lying if I said that I wouldn't be disappointed if he didn't win. Without the broken jaw, I'd say it would be all but guaranteed he'd have won the Art Ross, Lindsay, and Hart.

He was so far ahead of everyone else in the league this year and it'd be pretty disappointed if he ended up with nothing to show for it.

The fact that OV has the possibility to tie Lemieux in Hart's is BS.

Especially after the way he played this year. I just don't get it.

I also think Suter should have won the Norris over Subban, so I'm really confused as to what was going through voters minds this year.

He probably should already be tied with Lemieux.

Doesn't mean that much to me, when you see Mario get 199 points, and NOT get the Hart.

BTW, that 199, was 31 more points than the 2nd best (Gretzky) scorer in the league, 168. And even more remarkable was that was 84 more points than the 2nd best Penguin that year, (Robbie Brown) with 115 points.

84 more points than the 2nd highest scorer on the team. Let that sink in.

Well deserved. Although does he not speak any English at all? I wasn't aware of that

NHL should release the voters' ballots in order to shame the voters a bit. How could Minnesota's Niklas Backstrom get a 4th-place vote for MVP, or Nabokov getting a 3rd-place vote? Those guys should lose their voting credentials for doing such stupid stuff.

Yeah, if only Robbie had the skating to match his hands, he could have been in the 150s. Seriously, many of Mario's shifts in his first few years were 1 v. 6, with the other 5 just watching and trying to catch up.

I thought that disallowed goal was good; should be 2-0 Hawks.

Rask's force field only works against Dan Bylsma's coached teams.

Jagr with a great play. Beauty of a setup. Better save by Crawford.

Didn't see the first period, but what I saw was a good game . . . . .except . . . not to beat a dead horse, but the uncalled hooking/interference was ridiculous. They wouldn't have so many overtime 2-1 games if they would call the penalties. Chicago was guilty of most of the infractions that I saw.

And I'm really sick of Pierre's personal crusade in favor of a subjective decision on delay of game. Yeah, let's go back to goalies clearing pucks into the crowd and try to decide if they meant to do it.

Looks like Seattle is next in line for a team if Glendale can't get a lease agreement done for the Coyotes in the near future:

http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2...y-for-coyotes/

Not surprised they want to keep the team out west. If you move them to QC then the whole realignment plan would eventually have to be scrapped and Detroit and/or Columbus would have to move back west.

Yah he needs to shut his pie hole when it comes to delay of game. Makes no sense at all. I guess we're going to start interviewing players to decide if "they really meant it". Maybe some polygraphs for playoff games when it's really important.

Sometimes he just goes off the deep end with his rants. Usually not but when he does he goes Full Rossi.

Agreed, the less subjectivity latitude the refs have the better.
