    Let's here it for Jose Theodore. He won the Vezina trophy for top goaltender and the Hart trophy for MVP. This kid is for real folks. Andre Savard must do everything in his power to sign Jose to a long term and lucrative contract.


    Saku Koivu won the Masterton
    Jarome Iginla won the Pearson, Art Ross and Rocket Richard Trophy.
    Niklas Lidstrom won the Norris trophy for best Defenceman.
    Ron Francis won the Lady Byng and King Clancy awards.
    Michael Peca won the Selke award
    Patrick Roy won the Jennings trophy.
    Danny Heatley won the Calder trophy and
    Bob Francis won the Jack Adams trophy for best coach.

    That's a great accomplishment for such a young player. Both votes were very close -- Theodore tied with Iginla for the Hart and with Roy for the Vezina, but had more first place votes in each case (which is the tie breaker).

    He is a great goaltender. It will be interesting to watch him develop over the next few years. The position is tough enough, but to be the goalie for the Habs (or even Wings) is worse. Fans are knowledgeable and can be very harsh at times. If his skin is thick enough and his head is screwed on straight he has all the tools to flourish for years to come.

    Now if he would just ask to be traded to the Wings! Just kidding Richard, don't have a cow!

    No S**T!!! His rankings (this year):

    Save percentage - #1
    Goals against - #4
    Shutouts - #2
    Wins - #14

    Hmmm, looks like Hasek's old numbers with Buffalo!

    I don't see the Wings going after him. The looming lockout/strike is going to make this year's free agency interesting to watch. I think teams are going to resist long term contracts.
