    the Jaegermeister/College Humour Super Soph Award

    I've always thought there was room for some sort of second tier award for second year players - guys who, for whatever reason, get their chance or find their NHL game in their second year in the league, or maybe it's RoY winners who continue to be at the pinnacle of their class of NHL players.  I think the results would be interesting and it would put the spotlight on some players you may want to watch more closely.


    For example, two years ago, Huberdeau was RoY, juuuust edging out Gallagher.  Saad, Brodin, and Yakupov were the top five in voting.  If you did a Sophomore award for the rookies from that year, voting might go:


    1. Jaden Schwartz - 25-31-56


    2. Reilly Smith - 20-31-51


    3. Zuccarello - 19-40-59


    Brodin might be in there somewhere and Doug Hamilton and Vlad Tarasenko would probably finish at least as well if not better than they did as rookies.  Killorn is probably better than 19th.  Gallagher and Saad would still be up there, but Huberdeau would drop out of the top 5, and Yakupov would plummet.  Curiously, none of the top three Soph scorers was even in the top 20 in Calder voting the previous year.  Zuccarello only played a handful of NHL games after burning his rookie year three seasons earlier, then spending most of the next two years in the AHL.


    The year Huberdeau was the RoY, the rookies outperformed the Sophs by a country mile.  The Sophs included Landeskog, RNH, Henrique, Hagelin, Read, Gardiner, Faulk, Couturier, Voynov, and Shaw (in order of top 15 in RoY the previous year).  Brayden Schenn was the leading scorer among the Sophs that year, just ahead of Voynov, Read, and Hagelin.  Landeskog slumped and was injured.  RNH was a shadow of his rookie year.  Soph award voting might have gone Voynov, Schenn, Read - a very different result.


    There are already a truckload of secondary trophies beyond the ones for the best of the best - start with the Richard Trophy and work down from there.  We don't really need another trophy, but I think tracking Sophomore years would be worth the effort.

    This is just a veiled shot at me, making fun of the only good thing I have in Florida.

    Thanks, Pal.

    Can't be.  History shows that if it was a shot at you, more people would be piling on.

    Now, the Ekblad getting his Klok cleaned thread....

    Ha, this is actually one of those threads that I read and found interesting...I just don't have anything else to say about it.  I hadn't thought much about the sophomore shifting.  The research has now been done...what could I add?

    What do you guys think about the Seguin trade?

    OT, but...should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame?

    Should the NCAA pay its athletes?

    Is Gretzky better than Orr?

    No.  He agreed to the deal.  No takesis backsies.

    No, but anyone who makes any team should have free tuition.

    No.  Longevity is required.  

     

    Snowden, right or wrong?

    Can any BMW be considered better than a similar Benz?

    KISS and ICP:  Same thing?

    Let's argue about who's more disgusted by Jerry Sandusky.  I believe that assault on children is wrong.  Comment...?

    I predict Stanley will say Valeri Nichushkin this next year.  You blokes miss his predictions me thinks.

    Cat, bag.  Right or wrong is now irrelevant.

    No.  Low end, yes; higher up the scale you go, no.

    Mostly.

     

    Does Sandusky make us reconsider chemical castration as a form of punishment?  Thoughts?

    I'm betting Stanley can't pronounce Nichushkin.

    To me the Benz is far superior. In fact I recently bought a 97 E350 with 90000 miles on it with some of my pipeline cash. It rides like a dream. I plan to buy a newer one once I get back from my latest gig in British Columbia. The Germans make fine cars. I also like Volvos. Those cars are hard to kill as evidenced by their million mile club.
