We Won An Award!!!!!

ESPN's Fantasy Awards that is

Quote:
Reclamation project


The Teppo Numminen Resurrection Crown honors the individual who re-emerges from an unimpressive campaign to -- once again -- reinstate himself as a fantasy heavyweight the following year. Or middleweight, anyway. After an icky tour with the Dallas Stars in 2003-04, the former Winnipeg Jet (and Phoenix Coyote) reasserted his fantasy worth with 40 points in 75 games as a member of the Buffalo Sabres after the year off. Numminen's career went into a steady decline thereafter, but that's nor here nor there.



Nominees: Andrej Meszaros, Philadelphia Flyers; Brent Burns, Minnesota Wild; Roman Hamrlik, Montreal Canadiens



And the winner is Brent Burns of the Minnesota Wild. We couldn't be happier for Burns, who was finally able to live up to his full potential through an injury-free season. With his history of concussion issues seemingly behind him, Burns is on pace to finish off this campaign with nearly 50 points -- a good portion earned with the man-advantage -- and 100 penalty minutes. The Wild won't make the playoffs, but Burns will still have to consider this past season a success from a personal standpoint.

Seriously though, we might win a real award.

Actually, Pierre-Marc Bouchard has some good chances to win something.

Manny and Backs won the Jennings Trophy for lowest GAA in 06-07. That's a real award too.
