Sure but after watching this team all year I at least feel like I have some idea about who is, say, the best defenseman. I couldn't tell you for the life of me who the most Gentlemanly of the four Leafs who got Byng votes was.

Also, Zach Hyman with a 4th and a 5th place Selke vote.

Andersen finished 4th in Vezina voting. A distant 4th but still...

Looks like Lou probably gave him a 1st place vote.

These awards are usually a train wreck, but by goodness did the NHL just nail that Humboldt tribute, not a dry eye in the house.

The last Hart Trophy winner that wasn't with the team that drafted them was Joe Thornton in '05-'06.

Josh Manson received a 4th and 5th place vote for the Norris. Someone thought Chara was the 3rd best defenceman and Dougie Hamilton received a 2nd place vote.

Aren't these ballots supposed to be made public this year? Can't wait.

Also somebody put Hall down as a centre when filling out their all-star team ballot. Whoever did that should probably just come out and admit it was a simple mistake before people find out on their own.

David Shoalts was the one who did this. He listed Hall as both his top left winger and centre. Somehow not really that surprising.
