CBJ Mid-season Awards

Even when this team is winning, there always seems to be some negativity around the Jackets, but what can you expect, we always tend to come crashing down when things finally start looking better. With that said, let's try to keep this thread positive. It's a bit past mid-season, but I think this thread still fits, since there's a lot of games left to be played. The few extra games have also given some players to make some more good impressions on us these past 2-3 weeks.

So, here's what I've got...

Best overall:
Most improved:
Biggest surprise:
Best defensive forward:
Best offensive defenseman:
The best thing to happen to the Blue Jackets this year is:
Best win(home):
Best win(road):
Future CBJ Captain(s) growing before our eyes:
Best Crunch performance for the Jackets:
Best overall defenseman:
Best playmaker:
Best garbage man:
Best grinder:
Best fighter:
Favorite players(list up to 5):

________(add your own category):
