    Best Long-Shots For NHL Awards

    Grantland ruled out the more notable choices for league awards and tried to pick a long-shot winner from others they feel have a chance - like Marian Gaborik for the Rocket Richard Trophy (as he happens to be in a contract year).

    RHO, I think that Gaborik would be a great pick for the betting man. He's topped 40 goals in a season 3 times despite the fact that he's only played a full season once in his career. How about Khudobin for the Vezina? Stanley should be laying bets on that one considering he could probably get odds of 500-1 or higher.

    He's not eligible because he's too old.

    dez, Gaborik knows how to put them in.  It wouldn't be too much of a shock if the upswing in Bluejacket fortunes coincides with him returning to his former goal-scoring form. 

    And since we're talking long-shots do you think Iginla has enough left in him to top 40 goals playing on with Krejci and Lucic?

    I sure do. I look at a player like Selanne and know that it's possible to put up big numbers well into your late 30's-early 40's.

    Is Krug eligable for the Calder?

    Krug, Bartkowski and Smith are all eligible, I believe.  Krug might actually have a shot if he does for the PP what people hope he will.  He could rack the points (to a degree), play on a top team, and have a good defensive system around him to make him well-rounded.

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    The awards have always been rigged.

    It's the Makarov rule - you have to be younger than 26. It was brought in to prevent long-term professionals from other leagues from winning the Calder. It was designed precisely for players like Soderberg.

    He'll be the beneficiary of some sublime passes from Mr. Krejci.  We've also seen Lucic deliver some deft assists.

    Or perhaps the oft-overlooked Dion Phaneuf?

    If P.K Subban was mentioned here last year that would have been laughed at.
