With four, the Calgary Flames organization had the most nominees in this year’s NHL Awards ceremony. They took home two. First off a rant.
NHL awards are a sham. West had won 5 of the last 6 cups, yet the east still wins 3/4 of the awards. For example, Karlsson winning the Norris. He played about 35 seconds on the penalty kill all year and started something like only 20% of his shifts in the defensive zone. Bias? I think so. Johnny Hockey came third in rookie Calder voting. Bergeron continues to win the Selke. All great players, but there’s a bias here.
OK, with that out of the way, congrats to all winners, especially Carey Price on his haul of 4 awards. Here’s video of the Flames’ winners:
And give this guy a permanent ‘A’.
