Vezina finalists announced
The National Hockey League has announced the finalists for the 2007-08 Vezina Trophy, awarded to the league's top goaltender.The award's voted on by the league's 30 general managers.
The nominees include Marting Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils, Evgeni Nabokov of the San Jose Sharks and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.
Giguere might have deserved a nomination, but I think we're going to be seeing Brodeur win again anyway. Nabokov will have an outside shot, although he's substantially behind in save percentage.
Here's the schedule for the nominee announcements:
Monday, April 21 Vezina Trophy (top goaltender)
Tuesday, April 22 James Norris Memorial Trophy (top defenseman)
Wednesday, April 23 Calder Memorial Trophy (top rookie)
Thursday, April 24 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy (skill/sportsmanship)
Friday, April 25 Frank J. Selke Trophy (top defensive forward)
Tuesday, April 29 Hart Memorial Trophy (MVP)
TBD Jack Adams Award (Coach of the Year)
