Here are some of the choices:

Jaromir Jagr (leads the league in scoring and goals on Rangers team thats having its best record since 1995)

Joe Thornton (2nd in scoring leads the league in assists and since being traded has helped the Sharks make a run for the playoffs)

Henrik Lundqvist (3rd in GAA and save % has been huge in net for Rangers)

Miikka Kiprusoff (3rd in wins with 2.20 GAA has been a workhorse for Calgary)

Eric Staal (3rd in scoring and leading the Hurricanes to there best season ever)

Alexander Ovechkin (2nd in goals and tied for 3rd in scoring thats with not a lot of talent around him in lowly Washington)




Its a hard choice but i would go with Jagr cause he leads the league in scoring plus the Rangers have had a great year.

I'll vote for Jagr!

Although Lundquist is probably more valuable to the Rags then Jagr is.

But in the begining of this season everyone thought the Rags were going to be competing for the #1 pick in the draft not the #1 seed in the East!

Yashin and Sopel battling it out for 2nd.

Hart - Alexei Yashin with his 25th goal of the season this year, I mean he is really racking up in the offensive numbers and he is worth every million dollars the Islanders are paying him

Calder - Jeff Tambellini, Grebeshkov was supposed to be the stinker but Tambo takes the honors









:rolleyes:

Jagr Definately 4 points last night :thumbsup:

Dmitry Im now in agreement on Ovechkin Henrick has been a little off over the last few weeks and Ovechkin is still on a tear.

Lundqvist should have the Vezina locked up unless Kiprusoff has a great finish which is not out of the question he only allowed 1 goal last night and was close to getting a shutout.

True but you have to love this team maybe with one more key player you can here then say NY and Stanley cup in the same sentence, without hearing the chuckles. :thumbsup:

After watching the Flames the other night i would have to put Kiprusoff as a close second behind Jagr cause this guy just means too much to the Flames if you take him off the Flames they would have a hard time making the playoffs plus look at these amazing numbers for a guy that plays almost every game night in night out 38 wins .920 save % 2.15 gaa and 8 shutouts thats numbers like Hasek had when he carried the Sabres.

With only 2 games to go Thornton is really closing in on Jagr and since the trade to San Jose the Sharks have been dominating jumping all the way to 6th in the West, so if he ends up with more points then Jagr it would be a very tough call to make.

Niedermayer all the way man. If he wasnt hurt for Canada, they would have won gold.
Also, Thornton who singlehandedly deliverd the Sharks into the ploffs

I disagree although he has done a great job with the Ducks this year he is not even the best deffenseman in the league (Lidstrom is IMO just check out his career high in points his put up this year and thats by being paired with our worst player on the team Lilja) let alone the MVP.

Thornton should win it no doubt about it but we will see what they decide especially since the NY media is very biased and most of them dont even see that many Sharks games.
