With the two finals opponents determined, two more trophies were handed out: Clarence Campbell to the Vancouver Canucks for winning the Western Conference and the Prince of Wales to the Boston Bruins for winning the Eastern Conference.
The President's Trophy also went to Vancouver, the most represented team in individual trophies won and finalists listed below, too. Their success is what could create a super-division with one suggested given in the wake of the sale of the Atlanta Thrashers forcing the league to look at realignment.
Some trophies are won during the regular season rather than voted on. The William Jennings goes to the goalies of the team that gives up the fewest goals, so Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider of Vancouver already won that. The Art Ross went to teammate Daniel Sedin for leading the league in scoring.
The other major award already known is the Rocket Richard, which went to Anaheim's Corey Perry for leading the league with 50 goals. But below are the finalists (those who finished top three in votes) for the rest of the trophies for performance, listed in order of how they finish in votes.
(Credentials: I predicted every award right in my only other such article during my first year on Bleacher Report. In this playoffs I am 11-3 in predicting playoff series and in the 96th percentile on NHL.com's Playoff Challenge.)
