    All right i figured it would be fun to predict some awards see who i feel may win awards by the end of the season and who holds those awards at the moment (some are just guesses because there voted for not based on stats)

    Hart Memorial Trophy
    Current Johnathan Toews (Guess not 100%)
    Prediction Johnathan Toews

    Okay so most people will think im being biased here as Toews is my player but just look at his stats and who he plays with (as opposed to some of the bigger names who play stacked lines) and you'll see why he leads the league in goals and points is among the top face off men (considering most of them play 3rd line and hes 1st that's incredible) and is single handily carrying a less than impressive offense which is tied for 1st in the league.

    Vezina Trophy
    Current Jimmy Howard/Henrik Lunqvist (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Henrik Lunqvist

    Okay so Jimmy Howard posses the better numbers and leads the league in just about everything but Lunqvist has been stellar playing more games and almost boast the same save percentage and has higher shots faced if the Red Wings make the playoffs its because of King Henrik who plays in front of a less than impressive squad apposed to counter part Jimmy Howard who has a steller defense core and offensive guns.

    Norris Trophy
    Current Duncan Keith/Nicklas Lindstrom (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Duncan Keith

    Okay so what doesnt Keith do well 2nd in scoring among the top minute munchers, Shot blockers, Take aways. This is a tough race with many so talented defense men in the running this is probably one of the hardest awards to predict but if Keith keeps playing this way he will garnish alot of attention

    Calder Trophy
    Current Matt Duchene (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Matt Duchene

    Hasnt bee a top 6 forward bouncing around lines with centers coming in and out hes leading all rookies in just about everything and seems to be a lock unless someone makes a serious push in the later half of this season.

    Lady Byng Memorial Trophy
    Current Pavel Datsyuk (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Pavel Datsyuk

    This is a wide open race that has many big names in it so theirs no safe bet on this one but Datsyuk is one of the least penalized players i saw going through the list and the offense has been there again.

    Frank J. Selke Trophy
    Current Pavel Datsyuk (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Pavel Datsyuk

    Again an open race with many big names but again his name pops up with solid plus minus and big number but still not a lock by any stretch of the imagination.

    Jack Adams Trophy
    Current Randy Carlyle/Joe Sacco (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Joe Sacco

    If the Canes can make the playoffs they will be the team that made the biggest difference from last year (in a good way) the Canes have already beaten there point total last year if they make the playoffs Sacco should garnish some attention as well as the GM

    Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy
    Current Alexei Ponikarovsky (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Alexei Ponikarovsky

    Since being moved out of Florida Poni has gained 49points and a plus 11 in 48 GP he is out playing Zach Parise who has 40 points and minus 3 in the same time span. He hasn't been a star to garnish any major award trophies but he should get some attention for this overlooked award.

    Ted Lindsay Award
    Current Phil Kessel/Johnathan Toews (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Phill Kessel

    I think Kessel should be given some credit for his play currently leads all LW in scoring and is 3rd in goals he has given the Coyotes some life and for awhile had them leading the Pacific.

    Bridgestone Messier Leadership Award
    Current Marian Hossa (guess not 100%)
    Prediction Marian Hossa

    If Hossa can keep his offensive production up and can keep leading his team to the division title he should garnish some attention for this award (Alfredsson, Richards) should all also gain some recognition aswell as many other captains (minus anyone in a red wings jersey :P 4 captians is too much).

    Maurice Richard Trophy
    Current Johnathan Toews (not a guess based on stats)
    Prediction Jeff Carter

    Toews scoring has dipped abit in past weeks but hes still earning assists but with Carter on a tear its tough to argue right now that he might take the title from Toews very soon (fingers crossed that he doesnt)

    Art Ross Trophy
    Current Johnathan Toews (not a guess based on stats)
    Prediction Johnathan Toews

    Okay as long as he keeps getting points which he does almost every game he should be a lock for this award this year. You never know what could happen by the seasons end here hoping to no change.

    William M. Jennings Trophy
    Current Jimmy Howard
    Prediction Jimmy Howard

    Okay so unless the Blues have a massive melt down they have this award locked down for the fewest goals against they have a nice cushion on teams so this would need a big bad streak to push them out of this spot.

    I'd assume the Calder is Howard's to lose at this point.
