    Providing there is a season next year, who do you pick to win the Calder trophy next season? With Gerber being dealt to Carolina, i'm picking Ilja Bryzgalov. Kari Lehtonen is my runner up.

    I'm going to throw out a wild guess and say Dion Phaneuf.
     
  3. Kari Lehtonen (if given the chance), Patrick O'Sullivan (if signed), Alexander Ovechkin, Evengii Malkin...A darkhorse too...

    Can't say until they try out...

    This is pretty pathetic. I came into this thread expecting an AHL discussion. Yes, my NHL team is that bad that when I see Calder, I expect some talk about Wilkes Barre.

    Anyways, maybe I'll come back when I think about the right topic.

    In that vein, i'd say that Magnus Kahnberg is going to have a decent shot at taking this. He's the reigning SEL points and goal leader and will more than likely get his chance at NHL icetime next season. It's just a long shot, but there have been others.

    I don't think Kovalchuk won it.

    Lehtonen will win it if the Thrash make the playoffs and advance. Ovechkin will fight him tooth and nail.

    Ovechkin's gotta be the frontrunner, assuming he comes over immediately. Others I'd consider would be Lehtonen, Fleury is still elligible I think, Vanek and Barker.

    the only way Brys wins is if he unseats Giguere as the top netminder in Anaheim and plays the majority of the games. It's possible, but unlikely.

    Alexander Ovechkin, that's if he plays a whole season.

    Nothing against AO, I actually watched some video clips of him on the Pens website and he did some amazing things, but that said who is going to set him up in washington? I just do not see him lighting things up enough to win the Calder until he gets a bit more around him. Malkin very well might have more points because the Pens have that potent power play, add him to Jackman and Tarnstrom (not to mention Mario and Ryan Malone) and he could put up some impressive numbers on the PP alone, then add in his regular shifts. But still I am doubting that the Calder will come from either because of the teams around them being not yet ready for prime time. No, the Calder will go elsewhere I think.

    Kari Lehtonen is my clear frontrunner at this point.

    1) Ovechkin
    2) Lehtonen
    3) Sejna
    4) Malkin
    5) Lessard (hehe had to add a homer pick, but a season next to Mo should give him a decent shot.)

    Zach Parise will be given every opportunity to win the Calder because it seems as if he might be centering the 2nd line whenever he plays.

    Probably Lehtonen. But Parise has a shot too.
