Vezina For Timmy?


Timmy has already locked up (with Manny) The Jennings Trophy for least GAA all season and has also won the trophy (which name I don't know and don't care enough to look up) for lowest save percentage. He is now nominated against 2 Western Goalies (Mason and Backstrom) for The Vezina. This should be an easy choice as Timmy should win hands down... but stranger things have happened.

Chara was nominated for The Norris Trophy for top defenceman along with Lidstrom and Green. This award is not a given for "Z" as he is in tough company - could flip a coin here as all are great D-men and all play different styles.

Wheeler never got a Calder nomination for top rookie (I thought he he had a chance to be nominated) but whatever; Mason will win this one regardless.

Julien should get a nomination for Coach Of The Year but we will have to wait and see on that.

Ryder is also an early candidate for the Conn Smythe.

These individual awards are nice but really don't mean crap to these players as they are chasing one trophy and one trophy only, "The Stanley Cup"!!!!

Go Bruins Go!!!
