    Might be too early to have this thread but besides from Malkin, who will challenge for the Calder? Do you think it will be a one-horse race with Malkin running away with it?

    Yes! I think so.

    I suspect Schremp will put up a bit of a fight for the the title, even though he's not as talented, he will be put into a better situation. An older prospect like, say, Getzlaf, will also likely throw his hat in the ring. There's also a decent chance that someone unexpected surprises.

    My pick: Alexander Radulov.

    A guy like Roman Voloshenko could have a good chance of suprising, but if anyone other than Malkin wins it IMO it will be Radulov.

    Radulov's another good choice. He'll go straight into a winning environment, and according to Preds fans, has already shown some nice chemistry with their players.

    It's not even guaranteed malkin will be over. He still has two years left on his contract in Russia. Lately Russian teams have been kind of tough on letting come to the NHL.

    Just a quick question does or did Malkin have military time in Russia, like Semin is doing now?

    I'm going to go into left field a little bit, and predict Ryan Suter as the '06-07 Calder winner. Just a hunch, not very many d-men win it. In fact, he may not even be eligible next year?

    90% Malkin. But I hope Schremp will have a great rookie season, too.

    I have a feeling that Malkin will end up something like that : 20 G 65 A

    How about Semin if he can play right wing and ends up on a line with Ovechkin he could have a good year especially if Washington lands a top centreman. There's a few ifs there but if they happen he could have a big year.

    Semin played too many games to be considered next year. He was with the caps for the 03/04 season, and played about 50 or so games, so think that would make him ineligible

    Don't forget Grigorenko.
    his stats now in Russia are not bad. 11g 16a 27 points.
    best on his team.

    That's like, half the points Malkin has.

    Not sure Malkin will win it, but I'm fairly certain he'll be a better rookie than Grigorenko.

    That's a pretty flimsy limb considering he is a rookie this year, and cant be a rookie two years in a row. :dunno:

    I don't think Grigs will make as big of an impact because if he makes the team (crossing my fingers we need right wingers) he will be playing on a team that is not very superstar friendly. I'm not saying the wings arent loaded with talent, but i'm speaking in the aspect of individual scoring leaders, the wings have a spread out balanced attack. The calder trophy basically will go to the player with the most points and i don't think grigs will make as big of a splash as malkin will in the NHL. I hope i'm wrong though.

    Grigorenko, Kaigorodov, Zvinovjev if he comes over could all challange.

    Yes he can! He's THAT good! :sarcasm:

    No, but for serious, I think Radulov could be a serious contender, especially if Erat is traded to make room for him(as some suspect could happen.)

    Getzlaf...how many more games can he play this season before he loses Calder eligibility for next season? He has played 22 so far.

    If you play 25 games, you're ineligible for the Calder the next year.
