There has been a lot of talk circulating about the Hart Trophy this year. Personally, my vote would go to MacKinnon for three reasons. 1) the team fell off the map when he was injured, and 2) he almost one handedly willed them back into the playoffs when he returned. and 3) He's got 92 points in 67 games.

I'm none too concerned. If Hall, Kopitar, Malkin, or McDavid win it, I'm fine with it. My vote would be for MacKinnon, but I'm obviously biased. But he is doin' the thing that McDavid did for Edmonton last season, buoying a pretty mediocre team into postseason contention all on his lonesome.

I get tired of the argument about the terminology. Who cares if it's "Most Valuable" or "Best Player," it's pretty subjective no matter how you cut it.

My votes:
Hart - Nathan MacKinnon
Vezina - Pekka Rinne
Norris - Seth Jones
Selke - Patrice Bergeron
Adams - Gerard Gallant
Masterson - Brian Boyle
Lady Byng - Who Cares
GM of the Year - George McPhee

I think MacKinnon is a shoo-in for the Hart. I could see Kopitar getting a nod if the Kings make the playoffs. McDavid maybe, or Malkin. Giroux and Kucherov will lose points for having good teammates, but they shouldn't.

Rinne and Barzal obvious winners. Jones or Hedman for Norris.

Man I thought some of the Toronto-based guys were insufferable. They're NOTHING compared to the idiots in Edmonton.

I wondered out loud on twitter to DGB that I wonder how many of the same guys pumping McDavid for the Hart have previously ripped on people for piling up the points when they're essentially out of the playoff picture...

GM is McPhee for sure. Why the fuck couldn't the Isles send Snow to Vegas and keep him???

Barzal for Calder. I couldn't give a shit about the rest. Fucking Islanders.

Hart - Nathan MacKinnon (Hall)
Vezina - Pekka Rinne
Norris - Seth Jones
Selke - Patrice Bergeron
Adams - Gerard Gallant
Masterson - Brian Boyle
Lady Byng - Wayne Gretzky
GM - George McPhee

Pretty similar to Av but the picks seem pretty obvious this year, except for the Hart.
