Award/Trophy Voting Results for Penguins

Postby mikey287 on Thu Jun 21, 2012 10:57 am

Here's how the Penguins did in 2011-12:

Voting points (1st place votes)

1. Karlsson 1069 (66)
2. Weber 1057 (49)
3. Chara 950 (32)
9. Letang 40 (0)

- Notes: Very close Norris race this year. Karlsson very narrowly beats out Weber with Karlsson's historic season in tow. Dan Girardi was the only other players not in the top-3 to get first place votes (2). Pietrangelo, Lidstrom, Girardi, Campbell and Suter finished ahead of Letang, who had an abbreviated season. Hamhuis, McDonagh and Del Zotto finished immediately below Letang.

Jack Adams
1. Hitchcock 355 (63)
2. Tortorella 108 (5)
3. MacLean 89 (4)
6. Bylsma 25 (2)

- Notes: Kevin Dineen also with a strong showing (82 points, 5 first place votes). Bylsma appeared on 11 ballots. He was behind Barry Trotz, but ahead of Dave Tippett, Vigneault and Deboer.

1. Landeskog 1383 (116)
2. Nugent-Hopkins 1001 (26)
3. Henrique 620 (3)
7. Faulk 62 (0)

- Notes: Faulk with the second highest vote total among rookie d-men (Jake Gardiner) and was well ahead of Slava Voynov and Jared Cowen.
LOL @ one 5th place vote for Andrew Shaw.

GM of the Year

1. Doug Armstrong (StL) 119 (16)
2. Dale Tallon (Fla) 88 (10)
3. David Poile (Nsh) 62 (11)
t-12. Ray Shero 1 (0)

- Notes: Shero gets a single third place vote along with Lou Lamiorello. Lamoriello petitioned the league to have Shero's third place vote and was awarded it. Holmgren received 0 first place votes and finished 5th despite playing Be-a-GM mode on NHL 12 for much of the year.

Frank Selke
1. Bergeron 1312 (106)
2. Backes 698 (24)
3. Datsyuk 553 (8)
8. J.Staal 67 (0)
13. Dupuis 28 (1)

- Notes: In the best defensive player award (who scores 60 or more points), Jordan Staal received a fair amount of love, received a 0-1-6-7-9 card, just behind Jonthan Toews and Mike Fisher and just ahead of Anze Kopitar, Patrick Sharp and Joe Pavelski. Dupuis had the second lowest vote total among players with a first place vote (Talbot, one 1st place, one 4th place). Dupuis also received two votes for 3rd, 4th and 5th, respectively. He placed just behind Ray Whitney (WTF, he's never played defense in his life...) and Joe Pavelski and just ahead of Ryan O'Reilly (what a miss by the voters to leave this gem out of the votes) and Turtleneck Plek...

Lady Byng
1. Campbell 582 (31)
2. Eberle 518 (18)
3. Moulson 517 (13)
no Pens in the top 20

- Notes: Brian Campbell logs the most ice time in the league and takes three minor penalties on defense! And one of them was for delay of game...incredible. Loui Eriksson also had a strong showing (since he was ignored in the Selke voting for some reason). Claude Giroux finished 10th.

1. Lundqvist 120 (17)
2. Quick 63 (6)
3. Rinne 42 (4)
4. Smith 35 (2)
t-7. Fleury 1 (0)

- Notes: GM-voted award, so few ballots. Lundqvist captured 17 of 30 (same as Thomas last year, IIRC) but appeared on all 30 ballots (unlike Thomas last year, who only made 26). Brian Elliott (1st place), Jaroslav Halak (2nd place), Marc-Andre Fleury (3rd place) and Miikka Kiprusoff (3rd place) each rec'd one vote to round out the voting.

Hart Trophy
1. Malkin 1473 (144)
2. Stamkos 598 (1)
3. Lundqvist 556 (3)
t-22. Neal 2 (0)

- Notes: A blow-out of historic proportions for Evgeni Malkin. A near-unaminous choice for the trophy capturing 144 of 149 first place votes! Jonathan Quick was the only other not-listed player to receive a first place vote. Claude Giroux finished 4th. Spezza, Rinne, Karlsson, H.Sedin and Kovalchuk round out the top-10. LOL @ Brian Elliott (15th), Ray Whitney (16th), Radim Vrbata (20th) and James Neal (22nd). If you don't know, just don't vote.

All-Star Teams

First: Lundqvist 591 (87)
Second: Quick 424 (47)
"Third": Rinne 166 (9)
6. Fleury 24 (1)

First: Karlsson 625 (102) - Weber 620 (94)
Second: Chara 597 (83) - Pietrangelo 315 (4)
"Third": Lidstrom 123 (5) - Suter 93 (1)
9. Letang 37 (1)

First: Malkin 735 (145)
Second: Stamkos 379 (4)
"Third": Giroux 146 (0)

Left Wing:
First: Kovalchuk 537 (91)
Second: Whitney 219 (14)
"Third": Neal 217 (26)
t-20. Kunitz 1 (0)

Right Wing:
First: Neal 345 (58)
Second: Gaborik 324 (21)
"Third": Giroux 224 (43)

That's right. Neal was a second place vote away from being a first-team all-star at right wing and a second-team all-star at left wing! Impressive job by the media there. And this was after a re-vote because the first time they got the positions even more mixed up! Giroux was a "third" team all-star at both center and right wing. He played center all season long.
