My NHL Awards Ceremony—30 Games In

Icon Sports MediaAll teams have played at least 30 games, which is enough to give out my choices for the major awards of this year. Many probably wont agree with them, but I like these choices (obviously).

MVP: Vincent Lecavalier

Most people say the Lightning would be a dangerous team if they had a goalie. The reason they make the playoffs this year, though, will be because of Lecavalier, who leads the league in scoring and is projected at this pace to have the most points in over a decade.
Runners-up: Alfredsson, Luongo

Top Point Scorer: Lecavalier

I'm not completely sold that Crosby will come back with a passion, and I had the opportunity to see Lecavalier play recently and was pleasantly surprised with the way he performed. Considering he already has over 50 points, I believe he will be the best scorer in the league, edging out Alfredsson and Zetterberg.
Runners-up: Alfredsson, Zetterburg

Top Goal Scorer: Henrik Zetterburg

Too much raw scoring talent for him not to win this year. He will face competition for the award, but the bulk of his points this season will be goals.
Runners-up: Lecavalier, Heatley

Top Defencemen: Zdeno Chara

The Bruin Bruiser—as I heard him called by a Boston fan the other day—can score, play on the PP or even strength, and can deliver the crucial hit that the 2004 Norris runner-up showed in that season with Ottawa.
Runners-up: Markov, Lidstrom

Top Goaltender: Roberto Luongo

Best Goalie in the world today. He is Vancouver's future, and with the stats he has this year (14 wins, 1.99 GAA and a 0.928 save %) has the stats to go with it. Plus, he has a defensive core that is unmatched by the other elite goalies in the league.
Runners-up: Lundvquist, Brodeur
