Nothing quite says the glitz and glamour of award shows like announcing trades for 6th round picks.
haha A series of plumbers being selected with complete background soundtrack. The highlight of their careers.

Kadri finished 20th in Selke voting. He even got a 2nd place vote.

Someone gave Shea Weber a first place Norris vote.

EA misses the boat on their cover. The Big Three would have been awesome.

9 writers out there didn't think Karlsson was a top-3 defenseman this season. That's a pretty easy indicator that they need their credentials revoked.

Also 1 person out there thought that Torey Krug had a better season than one of Karlsson or Burns. Good job Boston homer.

Hey man, someone has to give those votes to Justin Schultz and Jared Spurgeon.

If two voters didn't have Karlsson on their ballot they should either have their voting privileges suspended or be forced to explain why.

Some PHWA voter gave Shea Weber their first place Norris vote. Given he got zero 2nd place votes, that's just an embarrassment. #homerism

When STEVE SIMMONS and DAMIEN COX are calling you out like this you know you suck at your job.

Also love the random Dmitry Orlov 5th place vote.

HE WASN'T EVEN A TOP-2 DEFENCEMAN ON HIS OWN TEAM

Laine got 3 first place votes. 3 people decided to go with the guy who had less goals, less points, played with better line mates, played the less demanding position and didn't lead his team to the playoffs.

Good job.
