The real highlight – for me anyway – was reading some of the user submitted responses for “other.” Here are some of the anonymous entries (misspellings and grammatical errors left blissfully untouched):
“Maxim Lapierre for boarding San Jose center Scott Nichol” (yeah, I missed that one for sure)
“I have to give this first vote to Corey Perry as he is a goalie seeking missle”
“Sean Avery for being Sean Avery”
Aw, I love you guys too.
Congratulations (I guess?) go to Matt Cooke whose true reward will be skating around the ice with a bounty on his head for quite some time (especially against Boston). To keep things simple, I’ll have this week’s nominees a little bit later today. There’s a good chance Mr. Ovechkin will earn a nomination.
