So nobody knows when Pearson award finalists were first named? I found a couple of short clips of old award shows from the 90's on youtube, but I didn't see the Pearson awarded in any of them. Does anyone have access to something like the Hockey News All Access Pass? I would imagine there would be award finalists listed in old issues of those magazines.

Yes, the infamous 1981 and 1986 Pearson awards... I guess it's a good thing the active players don't choose the major award winners!

Now, onto another topic -- people, a little love for Phil Esposito...???

We probably don't have to go into these extremes of "Orr was the greatest and Espo was made by him". That's just wrong, and insulting to one of the game's all-time greatest scorers.

Two things to consider:

1) 1968-69 -- Espo puts up 126 points in the sixties (= unheard of), while Orr puts up 64. Great season for young Orr, but Espo outscores him by a 2:1 ratio, so obviously he was doing a lot by himself.
2) Seven goals (13 points) in eight games in the '72 Summit Series without Orr. All the Soviets said Phil was Canada's best player.

Now back on topic...

Stupid Boolean search! It didn't mention "Hart" so I thought it was good when I read Pearson.

The 1997-98 Pearson nominees were listed in the Player Intangibles thread. I found them in the Winnipeg Free Press on LexisNexis last year.

The MVP award, as voted on by the players themselves, will be presented tomorrow afternoon at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
EDIT:

This is for 1997. Only three were named that year: Hasek, Kariya, and Lemieux.

Added to OP, great find. Kind of annoying that they did 5 finalists in some years, makes it a little harder to compare finalist positions for players over the years.
