Raycroft wins the Calder Memorial Trophy

Oh well, congrats to Andrew Raycroft I guess... I won't say I wasn't expecting that. Must say I'm pretty disapointed though.

Raycroft was deserving, atleast it wasn't Hunter who won. Seeing all those clips of his quick shot just make me more excited for next year.

It could have gone either way, but i think we all knew that Raycroft had a slight edge. Congrats to both on great seasons.

If anything this may push ryder to do more!!!!

And look where Richards is now

This means nothing imo, if anything it may push Ryder to do better for recognition.

I think nobody here expected Ryder to make a such impact at his first NHL season, me first... Ryder has became a valuable top 6 foward that bring goals and a physical edge, this is a wonderful blossoming that I personally did'nt expect.

I'm not concerned about this award, Ryder has been the best rookie skater to me, he brings so much to the table, this is a charactere guy and this is a kid we have to build around... This is all about Im concerned.

What is wonderful is that Ryder is even not our most skilled kid.. It say long about our bright future.

First of all...congrats to Raycroft but i still think its Bull#$#$....the guy did have 23 or so games of previous experience in 3 previous seasons...

Rookie of the year? That doesnt sound like thats what the award is for...i personally think the rules need to be changed...i know it will get rid of some good players but it shouldnt be anymore than 10 previous games of nhl experience and only going as far back as one single season. Personaly i wouldnt be against no NHL experience whatsoever.
No matter what anyone says its an unfair advantage for a player to have played in 23 games over 3 previous seasons over other rookies...to me Ryder *IS* the rookie of the year in the perfect sense of the word...
anyways this is something i touched upon before the playoffs as well...i didnt agree with it then and i still dont today

It annoys me, but Raycroft was a key factor Boston made the playoffs. Yes, Ryder was a big part of Montreal's a success, but the goalie has to be the best on your team to make the playoffs. Raycroft's got that going for him.

Does it really matter ? Does it make him a better person to do it ? I think it's a personnal choice & Brodeur is way more comfortable with the camera & the media than St-Louis.

It makes me remember people criticizing Felipe Alou ex-Expos manager because he didn't speak french even if he was married to a french woman. It sometimes gets too much political to me.

This is a hockey player not a guy who enter a miss universe contest.

Merci, c'était mon opinion

What does it change?

I think that us, proud frogs, are too much concerned about these kind of details!

Ryder lost Calder + Souray lost Masterton = Habs win in their salaries.

I knew Raycroft would win but I was surprised the voting wasn't even close. Ryder deserved way more than he got but like someone said before, hopefully this will motivate him in the future. As far as I'm concerned, he's rookie of the year!

Raycroft wins the Calder Trophy

No Habs player has won this thing since Ken Dryden in 1972. At least this year we have the runner up.

Since 1972, before this year, the Habs only had the runner up once, Chris Chelios in 1985. Tough luck for Chelly, he joined the NHL the same year as Mario Lemieux.
