in a great season for rookies, i find it rather difficult to pick 3 finalists for the calder without feeling as if someone has been left out. the top guys- raycroft, pitkanen, ryder, hunter, bergeron, etc. are all performing well enough to win the award. but the one thing that keeps coming into play is the age of these guys. ryder, raycroft and hunter are 23 years old. pitkanen is 20. patrice bergeron is 18, and the youngest player in all of hockey. my personal opinion is that what bergeron is doing this season is most deserving of the calder. the guy was in midget hockey 2 years ago, and is now playing a HUGE role on the bruins. the kid played over 22 minutes last night, scored 2 goals, and was first star (yet again). and while raycroft has been stellar...pitkanen has been rock solid...hunter has played consistently well...and ryder has put up the points...bergeron is the one who should win, based on his age and accomplishments with 5 less years of hockey experience (2 less than pitkanen). is this an unfair judgment, or do some of you agree?
