I'm curious to see the voting results for the Vezina this year. In think Hedman has the Norris locked up but not so sure Vasi takes the Vezina
Kid is going to be a great. This was the first test of fire he experienced and now he knows, he has to be Superman. And so he shall...
It's Rinne's year. Although I'm not sure he wants to go get it with that horrible playoff run he had.
This is my most fav quote after the game; Fan: He won the grammar !
Agreed, even tho voting is based off the regular season I still think playoff performances come into consideration as well a bit and Rinne didn't have a very good post season.
The saves Vasy made this year....
Interesting to see the voting.
Vasy finished 3rd....okay?
I'm actually not that surprised by this because this is only his first year as the starter for his team. He's got plenty more years of Vezina nominations to come. I'm now curious as to whether or not any first year starter has ever won the Vezina. Though the number of franchise records he set is pretty dang remarkable.
Plus he's only 23 freaking years old. My SON is 23 years old and, as much as I love him, he's nowhere nearly as focused/accomplished!!
Not a single 1st place vote
What a bum!
Pretty sure the votes are tallied before the playoffs begin. I could be wrong on that, but the nominees are released before the playoffs, and I'm pretty sure those are just the top-3 votes. So it's probably a bitter-sweet moment for Rinne, knowing how sour things turned right after the votes came in.
Jim Carey, the one hit wonder of goalies.
Rinne had a better season, really. Vasy came out of the gate super hot, but he lost the award down the stretch, where he was probably below average. Consistency is always tough for young goalies.
Vasi lost a lot of votes with his numbers in the second half, whether it was his fault or not it was a pretty bad trend statistically. Recency bias as the other goalies were probably just as bad early on but that gets glossed over now.
If he had played better in the second half he would have won. He is still super young and I think he gets another shot soon. Maybe as soon as next year.
Yeah, I agree that the second half of the season is what dropped him down in the minds of the voters. But he's so fricking young and so fricking GOOD that I'm sure we'll see him nominated again. Soon, hopefully.
Is it October yet????
I want that shirt.
