Pretty amazing that a rookie gets nominated for the Vezina but isn't a finalist for the Calder. Even given that some of these guys might have played last year if there had been a season, this was a great year for rookies.
The argument for awarding a point for an overtime loss was "coaches will be conservative and play for the tie, so let's give them a point anyway and make them play all-out for the extra point."
