CALDER TROPHY
Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal, Paul Stastny

SELKE TROPHY
Rod Brind'Amour, Samuel Pahlsson, Jay Pandolfo

VEZINA TROPHY

I don't have many quibbles with the choices here, but I will point out how interesting it is that there are four nominees for the Vezina this time around (all deserving, mind you).

As for winners, I'll go with Malkin, Pahlsson, Crosby, Ruff, Lidstrom, Sakic, Luongo and Brodeur.

Must have been a tie for 3rd spot in Vezina voting thus they listed 4 candidates.

My question as well, as to why there are four, but a third place tie makes sense. Guess Lundquist's half season of work was equivalent to Brodeur and Luongo. Or they chose two west/two east.

Malkin, Pandolfo, Luongo, Vigneault, Lidstrom, Sakic, Crosby, Brodeur.

Lundqvist played 70 games and had 37 wins with a 2.34 GAA and .917 save pct. Not too shabby.

But then I'd wonder why Giguere didn't get a nod. He played about a dozen less games but only had one less win with better numbers.

Or Marty Turco who had 1 more win in 3 less games with a better GAA.

The only thing I can think of is that shots against plays some part of deciding who gets the nod as Lundqvist faced a lot of shots and posted very good numbers.
