The Jennings Trophy (best save percentage), Maurice Richard trophy (Most goals), and the Art Ross Trophy (most points), will also be awarded, but obviously the winners are already determined. Jennings (Chechmanke, Esche, Brodeur will share award), Richard (Hejduk), Art Ross (Forsberg)
-Hart-Brodeur -Norris-MacInnis -Vezina-Brodeur (though Turco could win, missing some games may hurt him) -Calder-Jackman -Adams-Tortorella -Selke-Walz -Lady Byng-Modano -Masterson-Berard
On a slightly different, but related, topic, Markus Naslund has won the Lester Pearson Trophy. The Trophy is for the most outstanding player during the regular season and is voted on by the players (NHLPA)
WTG Markus, my home town hero!
My predictions for the awards tonight are:
Hart--Forsberg Norris--MacInnis Vezina--Turco Calder--Jackman Adams--Lemaire Selke--Madden Lady Byng--Modano Masterson--Berard

Yay, Alex Mogilny won the Lady Byng! The Leafs at least won one trophy this year!

In the issues of December 16th, 2000 to November 10th, 2001, we may have given the impression that George W. Bush had been legally and duly elected president of the United States. We now understand that this may have been incorrect, and that the election result is still too close to call. The Economist apologizes for any inconvenience. --- The Economist, 11/17/01
Now you will receive us. We do not ask for your poor, or your hungry. We do not want your tired and sick. It is your corrupt we claim. It is your evil that will be sought by us. With every breath, we shall hunt them down. Each day we will spill their blood, 'til it rains down from the skies. Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles which every man of every faith can embrace. These are not polite suggestions, these are codes of behavior, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost. There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth, not to push the bounds and cross over, in to true corruption, into our domain. For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three, and on that day you will reap it. And we will send you to whatever god you wish. Collin & Murphy MacManus
This is significant progress. There are two ways the players can respond. One is to see that as a fair and reasonable deal that is ultimately where the league wants to get and sign it (with a tweak or two as needed).
