3. Pavel Datsyuk, DET 267 (11-57-41)
4. Vincent Lecavalier, T.B. 55 (4-7-14)
5. Sidney Crosby, PIT 35 (3-5-5)
6. Henrik Zetterberg, DET 4 (0-1-1)
7. Ryan Getzlaf, ANA 3 (0-0-3)
8. Scott Gomez, NYR 1 (0-0-1)
Marc Savard, BOS 1 (0-0-1)
Jason Spezza, OTT 1 (0-0-1)
Eric Staal, CAR 1 (0-0-1)
Jonathan Toews, CHI 1 (0-0-1)

Right wing
1. JAROME IGINLA, CGY 653 (128-4-1)
2. Alex Kovalev, MTL 246 (3-65-36)
3. Daniel Alfredsson, OTT 161 (1-39-39)
4. Marian Gaborik, MIN 120 (2-22-44)
5. Dany Heatley, OTT 4 (0-1-1)
6. Sidney Crosby, PIT 3 (0-1-0)
Shane Doan, PHX 3 (0-1-0)
8. Martin St. Louis, T.B. 3 (0-0-3)
9. Brad Boyes, STL 2 (0-0-2)
Patrick Kane, CHI 2 (0-0-2)
Jason Pominville, BUF 2 (0-0-2)
12. Marian Hossa, PIT 1 (0-0-1)
Jaromir Jagr, NYR 1 (0-0-1)
Henrik Zetterberg, DET 1 (0-0-1)


Mr. Zetterberg gets votes at all three forward positions, and despite the fact he played centre for much of the year, wins a second-team spot as a left winger.

Some wacky votes. How could anyone pick Prospal as the third-best left winger in the league? Crosby as the second-best right winger?


Defence
1. NICKLAS LIDSTROM, DET 668 (133-1-0)
2. DION PHANEUF, CGY 411 (42-59-24)
3. Zdeno Chara, BOS 354 (41-42-23)
4. Brian Campbell, S.J. 297 (20-53-38)
5. Sergei Gonchar, PIT 288 (23-46-35)
6. Andrei Markov, MTL 134 (4-27-33)
7. Mike Green, WSH 59 (1-8-30)
8. Chris Pronger, ANA 58 (1-13-14)
9. Brian Rafalski, DET 38 (1-4-21)
10. Brent Burns, MIN 21 (1-3-7)
11. Duncan Keith, CHI 20 (0-3-11)
12. Mathieu Schneider, ANA 12 (1-1-4)
13. Mark Streit, MTL 11 (0-2-5)
14. Scott Niedermayer, ANA 7 (0-2-1)
15. Ed Jovanovski, PHX 5 (0-1-2)
16. Mike Komisarek, MTL 5 (0-0-5)
17. Wade Redden, OTT 3 (0-1-0)
18. Kimmo Timonen, PHI 2 (0-0-2)
19. Jay Bouwmeester, FLA 1 (0-0-1)
Joe Corvo, CAR 1 (0-0-1)
Jassen Cullimore, FLA 1 (0-0-1)
Tomas Kaberle, TOR 1 (0-0-1)
Paul Martin, N.J. 1 (0-0-1)
Robyn Regehr, CGY 1 (0-0-1)
Shea Weber, NSH 1 (0-0-1)
Sergei Zubov, DAL 1 (0-0-1)


Actually a pretty decent list, although I didn't realize Cullimore was a member of the PHWA. Redden shouldn't be there either.

And Gonchar should have been higher.


Goal
1. EVGENI NABOKOV, S.J. 523 (71-55-3)
2. Martin Brodeur, N.J. 475 (56-61-12)
3. J.S. Giguere, ANA 82 (3-8-43)
4. Henrik Lundqvist, NYR 74 (1-6-51)
5. Roberto Luongo, VAN 12 (1-1-4)
6. Miikka Kiprusoff, CGY 11 (0-1-8)
7. Chris Osgood, DET 9 (1-1-1)
8. Pascal Leclaire, CBJ 4 (0-0-4)
9. Dan Ellis, NSH 3 (0-0-3)
10. Tim Thomas, BOS 2 (0-0-2)
11. Niklas Backstrom, MIN 1 (0-0-1)
Ty Conklin, PIT 1 (0-0-1)


Again, relatively fair other than some wacky ones at the end. Kiprusoff also doesn't belong on this list given his subpar outing in 2007-08.

Kudos to whoever voted for Conk Block.

UPDATE I'll be on The Team 1260 in Edmonton at 5:50 EST tonight talking about the awards and other NHL topics.

So how does this voting work? Do the members just get a blank piece of paper and are told "Go nuts!"? How could a member of the PHWA vote for Crosby as a right-winger? Or Jasen Cullimore for anything?

Hi James,

How can Brodeur win the Venza while Nabokov wins 1st team all star?

Different voters?

Different criteria?

Different voters. I've covered this off before, but the 30 league GMs vote on the Vezina. The PHWA vote on the majority of the trophies and all-star teams.

How much do you want to bet the same writer that voted Heatley on the right wing also voted for Alfredsson as a left wing...

My confidence for some of these writers voting on these awards just took a big hit. Sidney Crosby a right winger????

i love Ovechkin getting a 133 votes on the All-Star team and the Hart voting. whatever "writer" is leaving him off seriously needs a massive kick to the crotch. what kind of juvenile tantrum does one of these old losers have against him? "wah, i follow boys around who play a game. me poopoo my pampers."

and guys voting for players completely out of position just shows how much they actually follow the league other than their own teams.

Honestly, is one person not voting for Ovechkin really a bigger indictment of this voting pool than sixty-four of them not voting for Lidstrom?

Good point JMN.

Didn't Kiprusoff win something like 39 games? 10 OT losses?

I didn't know that Calgary had such a great team. So many wins and tight games despite bad goaltending.

Maybe watching some games would help.

I do think that it's a good point, but it would look better if I'd gotten it into the Hart thread where it belongs.

Adam Foote continues to be one of the most underrated defensemen in the NHL. Probably always will be.
