Lubo really has a strong case for Norris, even though he wont win it, leads Dmen in points, is a +15, and is top 20 in TOI. The things he probably wont be able to overcome are the fact that he plays in the West, and plays less than 30 seconds of shorthanded time per game.

I wonder if they'll take into account the ridiculous percentage of Ducks goals he's on the ice for (over 60% of them, right?).

If he scores 10 more points than Lidstrom, while absolutely destroying his +/- as well, they HAVE to give it to Lubo.

I want to see Lidstrom get his 7th Norris as much as the next guy... but Lubo deserves it. who knows, maybe they will end up giving it to Weber or Chara... I really hope Lubo get's it though.

also... my hope of us grabbing 5th, and the Kings grabbing 4th could very well pan out! PHX has played 78 games, and they're bound to lose some down the stretch...

seriously though, as long as we don't have to play PHX or Nashville in the first round, I'll be pumped!

It's too bad Hiller went down for so long, we could have had quite a bit of hardware coming back to Anaheim this summer. Any team ever have a Vezina, Hart, and Norris all come from the same team in the same year?

Lubo is great, he's the best offensive defenseman in the league this year but the Norris is given to the best overall defenseman, not the guy who gets the most points. Visnovsky is good defensively but not elite, unlike guys like Lidstrom, Chara & Weber who all put up 45+ points while playing elite defense.

He should get a nomination based on how good offensively he's been. I don't think he deserves to win it though. +/- is a ridiculous stat to judge someone on also, anyone who watches Lidstrom play knows his +/- rating isn't indicative of his play.

Agree completely, I wouldn't mind if he was awarded though

4 game winning goals as well, I'm gonna get pissed if he's not even a candidate. But as long as he wins the league in points for defensemen he can't possibly be that overlooked.

Doughy does a flying charge from behind on D. Sedin after Sedin scores, no call. Classy.

Nice play there by Couture, it's ridiculous he's a 'rookie' though

i want to play the kings, not because they are easy, we can beat any team if we play well; but because of the rivalry it would inflame. they already play each other hard. imagine next year after one gets knocked out haha.

You mean getting awesome. I usually hate Vancouver but the last ten minutes of this game have been... Just great...

Clifford is an idiot. He had plenty if time to ease off of that hit.

How in the **** do you not get a shot on goal in the 3rd when only being down by 1? That's unreal.

Good night for us though.

Nashville win - Bad
LA loss- great
Dallas loss- great

2/3 this far into the season is about as much as you could ask for.

If the Kings beat the Stars, I think that will pretty much do it.

The Stars are being demoed by the Sharks right now.

Enjoying the main boards right now. The Canucks bragging is less worse at the expense of Kings fans

I think lately a lot of the Ducks hate from the Queens and Sharks is being directed at the Canucks. Hopefully we can come bite them both in the ass while they aren't looking.
