The first award of the night will be given out to the Funniest Poster. While he wasn't around as much this season as he serves his country in Iraq, his wit has allowed him to reign supreme over this category with 9 votes, with no other poster gaining more than 2 votes.

Congratulations to Valhoun

Next, we hand out the award to the Most Dedicated Poster. This is the person that seems to be always here to answer questions, complain about John Stevens, or baninate Penguins fans when baninating is required. Opus and MiamiScreamingEagles were the runners up with 3 votes each, but neither could compete with the winner that claimed 6 votes.

Congrats to gokimjohnsson514!

We next move on to the award for the Most Long Winded Poster. This person probably has a lot of good things to say, but the 24 hour news cycle and the internet has shortened people's attention span to the point where no one actually knows that. While Jester was the runner up with 3 votes, he wasn't anywhere close to the runaway winner with 9 votes.

Congrats to phlocky!

Continuing on, we now hand out the award for the Most Negative Poster. This person has been judged by his peers to be the one that represents the spirit of Negadelphia the best. This one got a lot of different people nominated, with gokimjohnsson514 and DigoutyourSoul as runners up with 3 votes each. However, the winner claimed 6 votes.

Congratulations JXC!

The opposite of last award goes to the Most Upbeat Poster. This guy is relentless in his belief that the Flyers are going to come through. He probably even believes that his SO loves him for him, and not just the spiffy mod powers he now sports. Charlie_Girl was runner up with 3, but not even close to the winner's 10 votes.

Congrats to Opus!

I'm actually kind of surprised I didn't win that (negative). I've been all over the Flyers almost as soon as they step foot on the ice.

Next up is the Best Poster in an Argument. This guy can go on and on for pages, combining facts and taunts that will have the people arguing with him pulling out their hair. He knows that the #1 rule of arguing is to never admit defeat, even if the Rangers are 15 points out of the division lead with 12 games to go. JXC got 3 votes, but the winner had an impressive total of 8.

This award goes to Jester! Congrats!

Next up is the award for the Most Knowledgeable Poster. This guy thrilled us all with random facts about the team in almost 90 GDT this year, and even more impressive is his ability to pull more random trivia out of nowhere in the middle of a thread. No else had more than 2 votes, while this guy had 7.

Congrats to MiamiScreamingEagles!

The first of the 'Big Three' award is the award for the Rookie of the Year. This award goes to someone with less than 1000 posts or having signed up during the most recent season. The votes were all over the place for this one, leading to our only tie. The winners had 3 votes each, while a couple of others got 2 votes.

Congrats to Flyers Junky and UseyourAllusions!

This next award was the most hotly contested between two candidates. The Outstanding Contribution to the Board vote was split between the avatar/Photoshop provider, and the GDT setup man. Between them they had 19 1/2 votes, split 10 for one and 9 1/2 for the other. By a razor hair margin ...

Congrats to Jules801!

And last but certainly not least, the Poster of the Year.

This was also very tightly contested between two of the moderators. But in the end, by a tally of 6 votes to 5, the Game Day Threads and fountain of knowledge triumphed over the upbeat pleasantness.

Congratulations, MiamiScreamingEagles!

Congrats to all the winners!

I abstained from voting on three of the categories and I think I picked only one winner.... maybe two.

Thanks again, MH, for putting this together!

Excellent choices!

We're lucky - I think we have the best collection of posters, so some of these awards weren't easy to choose.

Congrats all!!

And fabulous job on the trophies Jules! I'm glad you have one of your very own, for all the work you do here!
