People to Watch

Well my friends, now that trade rumor season has officially come to an end, Geoffrey and I have been racking our brains as to what I will write on next. After many a sleepless night I bring to you the "People to Watch" series. Twice weekly I will make an update of the front runners for the major awards categories. I encourage you to submit your own names and to let us know if we are way off. I am happy to edit my entries if the public sentiment is overwhelming. As of right now there are very few locks on any of the major awards so the list is likely to change from post to post.

Hart Trophy . . . Joe Thorton.

McCabe for Norris. He is the best offensive D-man in the league, Bar-none.

McCabe is actually third in scoring among defencemen behind Lidstrom and Visnovsky, and McCabe is a -1 now to boot, so he shouldn't even get a nomination at this stage. People that think McCabe is a Norris candidate need to get past his first half hype and realize he is a terrible defenceman and really isn't that good of a scorer, either.

sensfan44 said it best. . . . .McCabe is defensively absent. -1 with around 50pts. Not Norris worthy.

you forgot Lundqvist for the Calder. Ovechkin will win it, he Henrik should finish 2nd.
