Flyers End of Season Awards

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/f...d-winners.html

Quote:
As today marks the final day of the Flyers’ 2010-11 regular season, there is some annual hardware to be handed out tonight at tonight’s game against the Islanders at the Wells Fargo Center.

Here’s what you will see:

BOBBY CLARKE TROPHY
Awarded to the Flyers’ most valuable player: Claude Giroux
Last year’s winner: Chris Pronger
Voted by: Panel of sportswriters and sportscasters


BARRY ASHBEE TROPHY
Awarded to the Flyers’ best defenseman: Andrej Meszaros
Last year’s winner: Chris Pronger
Voted by: Panel of sportswriters and sportscasters


PELLE LINDBERGH MEMORIAL TROPHY
Awarded to the Flyers’ most improved player: Andreas Nodl
Last year’s winner: Matt Carle
Voted by: the Flyers’ players


YANICK DUPRE CLASS GUY MEMORIAL AWARD
Awarded to the Flyer who best illustrates “character, dignity and respect for hockey both on and off the ice” goes to: Brian Boucher
Last year’s winner: Ian Laperriere
Voted by: Panel of sportswriters and sportscasters

Good for everyone, but I gotta say...even though Kimmo hasn't been the greatest over this last stretch, it's a joke that Meszaros won for best D. He's been a great pickup, he's played very well, but best dman? No way. Go to behindthenet.ca for the in-depth stats. Too bad the sportswriters got this one wrong, though I'm sure Kimmo doesn't really care. Just goes to show how under appreciated he is -- even in Philly.

I think Mez won because he's picked up his game somewhat since Pronger went down and Kimmo hit a rough patch, and people remember the more recent stuff better than when we were dominating everyone and Kimmo was awesome.

Meszaros seemed to have a tough start too. I actually thought he might win the Most Improved.

Can't really complain about these awards. I agree Kimmo should have won the Ashbee, but I can deal with Mez getting it.

They made good choices in my opinion. Kimmo could have gotten the Best D for sure, but these are fine.

If Mez doesn't score just 1 of his 2 OT winners I bet Ashbee goes to Kimmo.

Easy now, killer. The opinion of the Philly media hardly makes it a fact that G is really the best player on the team.

I'm not saying he isn't, but that a bunch of sports writers (some of the more prominent of which are well-established hacks) gave him an award is not the piece of evidence that wins that argument.

If Mesz doesn't... this last game probably means much less.

... And going back to about around those happier times... boy do I miss the two Richie OT wins that were blown off, one of which was Pronger's pointing/unsportsmanlike, the other I forget what happened... and also that goal that was split second before the end of the OT... all three were lost in a SO and three points hat may have meant the conference.

That said... should not have had to be won in OT, or should have been won in the exhibition period (SO)... If and buts/candy and nuts.

Sorry for the going off topic... Let's Go Flyers!!!!!

Saunders and Therien both said they had Timonen, Meszaros and Carle in their top threes but neither had Mesz #1. They didn't specify their orders.

I would give it to Kimmo, but I can deal with Mez getting it.

G definitely deserved the Clarke. Kimmo would have won my Ashbee, and I'd probably have Carle ahead of Mesz too.
