Anze Kopitar nominated for the Lady Byng Trophy!

Kopitar, Hudler, and Datsyuk all nominated for the Lady Byng. Congrats Kopi!

I'm guessing Hudler wins it though..

He should win an award for passing up the most shots so our pure snipes, RR and Greene, got the puck instead.

He should win so he has to go on stage and make an awkward speech.

No. Not as a finalist anyway. There will be votes for him I imagine though.

"The Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, formerly known as the Lady Byng Trophy, is presented each year to the National Hockey League "player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability, so much so, that this gentlemanly conduct does not act to be so offensive as to score goals on the opponent. This could be hurtful and emotionally damaging to the opponent"

Yep, that exemplifies Anze Kopitar 2015.

He definitely was more friendly this year by having a 100 less shots than his previous year...

In all seriousness, I'm glad he's nominated. Probably won't win, but its still great that he's getting recognition.

134 shots and 10 PIM. If one asked before the season began, are those the numbers of A: Kopitar B: Lewis or C: Alec Martinez, you would answer B or C. or, A, if Kopitar missed a third of the season. Those numbers are sub-beast mode performing...or underperforming.

The reason for his low shot number is called Marian Gaborik.

I dont have the number ( if anyone has would be great) but I think with Gaborik in the lineup Kopi is close or at PPG

Thats a shame cause its true. He is still on top with advanced stats, does it mater who on his line shots...?
And based on opinion that Kopi is at PPG with Gabs in the lineup his decision not to shot is a good one isnt it...

I can buy that's one of the reasons--deferring to an elite shooter--but he was noticeably less assertive with shooting the puck period. Brown scored 33 goals with Kopi and that didn't tax his numbers.

Yep. His shot total was a career low by a long shot. 134 is just nuts.

Kopitar was definitely trying to force feed the puck to Gaborik and Gaborik was doing the same to a lesser extent. I honestly think they'd be better off playing on different lines.

No, it wasn't a good idea. Getting pucks to the net is what drives offense in the NHL. Kopitar didn't take the puck to the net often enough, nor did he shoot often enough.

If you have a break down of Kopitar's performance with and without Gaborik please share it. Bottom line though is Kopitar needs to be less passive and more assertive in the offensive zone. I don't want to see the second coming of Joe Thornton out there playing for the Kings.
