NHL Awards Tonight! Who Will Win?

Just to add to the anticipation, here's a little inspiration...


As a refresher, here are the nominees...
http://www.canucks.com/news/pressre...ionID=31&id=272

Naslund a Finalist for Hart Trophy
Wed. Apr 30, 2003


NEW YORK (April 30, 2003) --Four members of the Western Conference regular-season champion Dallas Stars -- the most of any NHL club -- have been selected as finalists for NHL trophies as the NHL announced today the nominees for seven annual awards. Stars voted as trophy finalists are Derian Hatcher, for the Norris Trophy as best defenseman; right wing Jere Lehtinen, for the Selke Trophy as top defensive forward; center Mike Modano, for the Lady Byng Trophy for sportsmanship; and Marty Turco, for the Vezina Trophy as top goaltender.

Named as finalists for the Hart Trophy as the League’s most valuable player to his club are forwards Peter Forsberg of the Colorado Avalanche and Markus Naslund of the Vancouver Canucks -- NHL scoring leaders this season and natives of Ornskoldsvik, Sweden -- and New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur. Each is a Hart Trophy finalist for the first time.

Brodeur, also a Vezina Trophy finalist, and Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom, a finalist for the Norris and Lady Byng Trophies, are the only players nominated for multiple awards.

The winners will be announced Thursday, June 12 during the 2003 NHL Awards Television Special in Toronto. The Awards show will be broadcast nationally in Canada on CBC and in the United States on ESPN2 from 8 - 9:30 p.m., ET.

All voting is conducted at the conclusion of the regular season. The Professional Hockey Writers’ Association votes for five trophies (Hart, Norris, Selke, Calder and Lady Byng), the NHL Broadcasters’ Association selects the Jack Adams Award and NHL General Managers vote for the Vezina Trophy.

CONGRATULATIONS MARKUS!!!

For those of you who don't know, the Lester B. Pearson Award is even more important than the Hart Trophy according to almost everyone in the game. This award is voted on by the players, who have to face the nominees night in and night out (so they know best!).


Vancouver's Markus Naslund wins Lester B. Pearson Award on Thursday

Vancouver Canucks captain Markus Naslund is this year's Pearson trophy winner as the most outstanding regular season player as voted by his fellow NHLers.


TORONTO

For Markus Naslund, the Lester B. Pearson Award is anything but an afterthought among NHL awards.

"I can honestly say this one is special, even though it doesn't get the publicity the Hart Trophy gets," the Vancouver Canucks captain said after receiving the award Thursday at a lunchtime ceremony prior to the NHL's evening awards gala.

"It's still a neat thing when your peers vote for you," he added.

NHL players chose Naslund as the league's most outstanding player, earning him the award named after Canada's former prime minister.

Boston captain Joe Thornton and Colorado forward Peter Forsberg were the other finalists.

Forsberg and Naslund, along with New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur, were also finalists for the Hart Trophy as league MVP. The Hart is voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

The Pearson winner receives $20,000 US to donate to a hockey program of his choice as part of the NHLPA's Goals and Dreams fund. Runners-up get to contribute $10,000 to the grassroots hockey program of his choice.

Naslund, 29, was second in league scoring this season with 48 goals and 56 assists in 82 games.

The first Swede to win the Pearson Award, Naslund paid tribute to those who went before him.

"I give credit to a guy like (former Toronto defenceman) Borje Salming, who came over and opened the door for all of us. I've just heard what he had to go through to get to this point, so my hat is off to him. Guys tried to intimidate him when he came over. He just battled through and showed up game in and game out."

Canucks general manager Brian Burke said Naslund's contribution is far greater than what fans see on the ice.

"Class guy, great leader," said Burke. "We've only got five players left in Vancouver that I inherited (when the GM joined the club in 1998), but thank God he was one of them."

Both Burke and Naslund credit ex-Canucks captain Mark Messier with moulding the player Markus would become.

"Playing with Mark Messier did help develop Markus' own leadership skills, said Burke. "He would be the first to admit that."

Naslund agreed.

"Anytime you're around greatness, which I look at him (Messier) being, I think you try to pick up things. Just trying to see how he tried to keep the team tight, not only on the ice but off the ice, that's stuff that you try to remember."

I never thought I'd live to see the day, Cujo...you're a decent man afterall. You don't think Forsberg will win? As much as I want Markus to win, I think the writers will pick Forsberg (leading scorer, best +/-, etc).

Yeah, but Naslund was consistently good. Forsberg just burned up the race towards the end. It went to a Canadian team last year... Jarome, you remember him right?

Alright, who's gonna be the spoiler and post the winners before broadcast?

I know it's on at 8:00pm MT. But it may have already started in Toronto.

PS- Zoney, good point... maybe another intervention is in order.

It's unfortunate that Brodeur finally got the Vezina... combination of Turco's injury and the "always a brides-maid" factor.

Brendan Shanahan collecting the King Clancy, as well Steve Yzerman receiving the Masterton Trophy. Both class acts... no matter what the Chizzer says...



Congrats to Barrett Jackman, and all the other deserving winners.

PS- Peter Forsberg, what were you thinking? Let's make fun of a small-market team and their plight to survive financial constraints. Hahaha, you need to take your comedic act on tour.

Forsberg said something to the effect of:

Well a lot of people thought Lemieux would be winning this award... up until he traded all his players away.

*awkward silence*

... but that's another story.

*cringing*

Damn!!!!!!! We didn't get the #$*#ing NHL awards out here! This is like the first year EVER that CBC hasn't carried it out in BC (or at least where I live). What feakin' gives??? I'm soooo pissed right now! I wanted to see Sam Roberts play. Arggghh. Hey, Cujo, what did Forsberg say?

So, turns out I got 5 of the 7 of the award winners right. Not too bad, hey?
