Tracking the trophies

A post last week on my early votes for the Hart Trophy drew quite the response, with a lot of voices around the blogosphere weighing in on how, uh, misguided my choices were.

The reason I was even thinking of the discussion at this early point in the season is that The Globe and Mail is doing a year-long Trophy Tracker, where about 10 of the newspaper's hockey minds will have a weekly vote on their Top 3 picks for various major NHL awards. It'll be an interesting experiment — especially, I imagine, when we look back at the various results during the season and when the awards are eventually handed out in June.

Anyway, given the amount of disagreement and debate out there over things like this, I thought I'd share my votes from this week. Let me know what you think and perhaps I'll change my mind next week:

1. Lindy Ruff, Buffalo
(TGAM pick: Ruff, 22 points)
2. Ron Wilson, San Jose
3. Paul Maurice, Toronto

1. Rod Brind'Amour, Carolina
(TGAM pick: Brind'Amour, 14 points)
2. Samuel Pahlsson, Anaheim
3. Brian Rolston, Minnesota

1. Chris Pronger, Anaheim
(TGAM pick: Pronger, 16 points)
2. Nicklas Lidstrom, Detroit
3. Scott Niedermayer, Anaheim

1. Manny Fernandez, Minnesota
(TGAM pick: Turco, 20 points)
2. Marty Turco, Dallas
3. Olaf Kolzig, Washington

1. Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh
(TGAM pick: Malkin, 20 points)
2. Matt Carle, San Jose
3. Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles

1. Marian Hossa, Atlanta
(TGAM pick: Hossa, 22 points)
2. Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh
3. Chris Pronger, Anaheim

I would say Rolston deserves some Hart consideration. He's on pace for great numbers, kills penalties, works the powerplay, scores TIMELY goals, and shuts down other team's players.

He's also been able to maintain his production with Gaborik out of the lineup.
