Rookie of the month

Who is your choice for rookie of the month ?

My choice is Pitkanen, 6 pts in 8 games, leading his team with +6.
Patrice Bergeron is a close second, and Konstantin Koltsov is also HM

Most Valuable Rookie of the month is Pitkanen.
Most Outstanding Rookie of the month is Bergeron.

Chose between both for rookie of the month!

EDIT : Forgot to mention M-A Fleury

Marc-Andre FLeury deserves recognition. Definitly a stud in goal, just on a bad team. Pitkanen deserves the Rookie of the month though.

You have to put Fleury over Koltsov, anyway.

My vote would be for bergeron, youngest player in the league and i think he needs to get some credit for the good work he's done in boston this year. My runners up would be pitkanen and fleury.... all 3 are playing very very good though

Pitkanen Bergeron and Fleury

Pitkanen is only 3 points shy of leading all defenceman so i'd give him the honours. Fleury seems unstoppable, and bergeron is meshing perfectly with his Bruin team. Tough call.

Honorable Mention to Joffrey Lopul

what about andrew raycroft?? according to THN, he qualifies as a rookie. start including him in all of your rookie analysis, b/c he's here to stay.

i agree with the above poster though-
fleury, pitkanen, bergeron....and raycroft are the top candidates

Bergeron, Pitkanen or Fleury would all be good choices IMO. Honourable mentions to Jason King.

Pitkanen...

I saw almost all Flyers game and I really think he is the MVP of this team right now...

No, may be trailing Recchi.

Being a SHarks fan, I have to put a guy from are team in here.

Tom Preissing, 1 goal 3 assist. Been Very good so far. Though he's definitly not the rookie of the month. He should be in the top 10 for people in the running.

I'd give it to Fleury.
Rarely an 18 year old goalie has dominated the way he has.
Second Bergeron and Pitkanen.
Koltsov a distant fourth.

Koltsov is lower than fourth. Raycroft, Jason King, and Michael Ryder are guys I would put above him.

Joni Pitkanen should be the Rookie of the Month. MA Fleury 2nd, Bergeron 3rd.

Fleury is definitely the most valuable rookie thusfar. Without him, we could possibly only have 1 point.

Don't know who I'd give it to.

I wouldn't even consider Koltsov a candidate at this point.

Why? He has 6 points in 9 games, and you know stats don't even tell the whole story with him.

I don't think Zidlicky is eligible.

1- Fleury
2- Bergeron
3- Pitkanen

4- Koltsov
5- Raycroft
6- Staal
7- Ryder
8- King
9- Malone
10- Lupul

i'm a bit surprised no one has mentioned ruutu yet. i certainly wouldn't say number one, or even five, but i've seen him twice and been very impressed both times.

If Zidlicky is eligible he wins it hands down......3 more assists last night, leading all NHL d-men in scoring (even over Pitkanen), and he has stepped in and replaced all the dman that Nashville let go. Easy winner. Being a Pens fan, I wish MAF would get it but Zidlicky has played way over everyone else.

Good to see a lot of rookies play well. They are the future of the league, after all. Oh yeah, my vote goes to fleury.
