It's that time – the final push for a title. What a season it's been.
Great and weird, all in one.
I like this year's divisional format – seeing so many North games spoils me. But I feel like I've missed a lot, too. Like games in every other division.
That's why this year's award season is so hard to predict. How do you pick players that haven't played head-to-head?
How good is good? And how East-coast biased will this year's awards be?
These are my award picks (for now). And yes, there's an East-coast vision. Better to admit it right up front.
Hart – Connor McDavid. Enjoy every game this guy plays. Even Wayne Gretzky is impressed.
Vezina – Andrei Vasilevskiy. Head, shoulders and torso above. Just look at that division and who he faces every night.
Norris – Victor Hedman. Sure, he's come back to the pack, but he's still the best on both sides of the puck.
Jack Adams – Rod Brind'Amour. It's a toss up between him and Joel Quenneville. Gut call. Then watch him walk to the Kraken next season.
