2007-2008 NHL Awards Predictions

After the NHL announced the winners of the various trophies and awards for this past season, DCO began an in-depth process of making projections for the 2007-2008 season. Based on these projections, we believe we have come to reasonable conclusions as to who will win next year's post-season awards. The results:

Calder Trophy (best rookie) - Niklas Backstrom (WAS)
Selke Trophy (best defensive forward) - Boyd Gordon (WAS)
Norris Trophy (best defenseman) - Soon-to-be-acquired (via trade or free agency) elite defenseman (WAS)
Vezina Trophy (best goaltender) - Tie: Olaf Kolzig/Brent Johnson (WAS)
Lady Byng Trophy (sportsmanship/gentelmanly play) - Donald Brashear (WAS)
Jack Adams Award (oustanding coach) - Glen Hanlon (WAS)
Hart Trophy (MVP) - Alex Ovechkin (WAS)
Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP) - Brooks Laich (think John Druce) (WAS)

It could happen.

HAHAHA...I think you should pray that the caps even make the playoffs next year let alone get the conn smyth trophy the only award that doesnt sound ridiculous is the MVP to Ovechkin, although I doubt he will win.

HAHAHAHA....Donald Brashear winning the lady byng, ur too funny

This post is way old, but I just had to comment... Here we are, in the playoffs with very positive prospects. So pooh on you aalok.

Actually - Backstom, Ovechkin and Laich predictions are entirely plausible/possible. It would be super hilarious if Brashear did somehow get the Byng Trophy :)
