Voting shouldn't be based on who makes the highlight reel more often.



true but unfortunatly no one said life was fair and unforturnatly no one said this competition was fair, if it was we would have had hockey last yr. AO would have his trophy for his yr. and Sid would have his for this yr. but since last yr. was lost we will never know for sure and the two will forever be linked by their rookie yrs. and for yrs. to come, and forever compared to each other for what they both will accomplish for a long time to come.

No, it should not be. The media shouldn't decide Calder winners any more than they should decide political races. However, they do. Ovechkin will win it because he's been the big highlight goal scorer of the year, rookie or no.

Gretzky wasn't allowed to win the Calder.

Well, it's not like Gretzky didn't win it because someone else beat him. He simply wasn't deemed eligible. Certainly, he was the best first year player. I believe he tied for the scoring lead and won the Hart trophy. I doubt any first year player will ever be able to accomplish that again.

But you're right, the Calder doesn't really prove much. Jagr didn't get it, and he's the best player in the game.

Also, I wouldnt be surprised to see Malkin killing some penalties for the pens, he has done it alot in russia and the olympics, and has shown he's pretty darn good at it.


Imagine is Sid killed penalties this year, he'd have 20-25 more points. :)
