With training camp in the NHL fast approaching I am going to make my predictions for the NHL's major awards.
Stanley Cup: Detroit Red Wings
Detroit added Hossa in the off-season to up an already competitive team to put them back in the drivers seat.The Red Wings should be experienced enough to avoid the Stanley Cup hangover.
President's Trophy: Detroit Red Wings
Norris Trophy Candidates: Nick Lidstrom, Dion Phanuf, Chris Pronger
Winner: Nick Lidstrom
The race here will really be between Lidstrom and Phanuf but Lidstrom has a better team and a better line mate than Phanuf.I think this will be his last though
Calder Trophy Candidates: Steven Stamkos, Kyle Turris, Drew Doughty
Winner: Steven Stamkos
The leages next top rookie will start right of the get go. Stamkos can expect some power play time next year.
Hart Trophy Candidates: Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovetchkin, Pavel Datsyuk
Winner: Sidney Crosby
It should be close between Crosby and Ovetchkin but Crosby will come out on top.
Selke Trophy Candidates: Pavel Datsyuk, Henrick Zetterburg, Marion Hossa
Winner: Henrick Zetterburg
Hank will be the best defensive forward out of an all Red Wings line up.
