For my 7,000th post, I think it's only fitting to hand out some first-ever annual Ants end of season awards. Lots of great nominees, but there can only be one recipient for each.

Calder: Rebecca de Mornay. Has made brief appearances in the past, but really had a strong rookie year showing this season.

Norris: Swordo. His team fell short of expectations, but Swordo was always back there, steadily defending to the end.

Vezina: ~crashintome89. Witty, clever posts stabilized the thread throughout the season and helped foster a consistent, light atmosphere.

Byng: Kev87Lads. Just a sweet guy.

Selke: Barbogast. Was frequently called upon to defend his ailing club, and did so with just the right mixture of honesty and pride

Adams: Lockman21. His knowledge of the game in general kept us on an even keel. Chris was also a strong Norris candidate due to his switch to D this year, something that has made me eternally proud of him.

Hart: TMoore. Lead the thread in posts for the year and was consistently great in all aspects of the game.

Great regular season, guys.

Aw. I'll take it. I know I'll never get close to the Richard, Ross, or Hart, but I'll definitely accept this Lady Byng. I'd like to think I'd be in the running for the same trophy in my men's league as well.

(But pay no attention to the two hand chop to the boot I gave some dude on Sunday night.... I didn't do that and get a two minute slash post whistle. No, not me.....)

(Yes I did.)

(My first penalty!)

Speaking of Yandle and me playing D now...

Matty, you would have been proud. I was playing point on the PP the other day in OT of one of my playoff games, and did my best impression of this Yandle goal:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92wbX_Mrhrk

Except mine was a wrister off an intentional pass from my RW in the corner. He was a little below the goal line up along the boards, there was a LOT of open ice on my side, I came sneaking down and caught a great pass on my forehand at about that same exact spot Yandle fired from, and just buried it top shelf off the crossbar over his blocker (his right hand). I was a little closer to the left post than Yandle was, but it was awesome. Nothing better than an OT goal that gets that PING.

Geez, goon. I'm gonna start calling you Ryan O'Reilly.

I'm proud of you, Kev.

Ka-CHING! Well look at me, just bursting with pride for my boys. That was a beauty... would've liked to see it. Well done.

We should have created a Rico Fata award. I'll get on that for next season.

Will post full bracket later but I've got a rematch from last year in the final, same outcome.


Edit: Thanks for the Norris, Fonz. At least the 'Oilers' won something this year anyway.

I'd flip the top 2, but I think we can safely say MTL/TBL is the least enticing of all the first round series. Should be a great hockey matchup, and it's always fun to watch the Canadiens melt, but for whatever reason I don't really care about it

Yeah, the top two are really neck and neck for me.

Don't care about Habs/Bolts, I just want them to beat the ever-loving piss out of each other.

Will be at game 2! Sitting somewhere in Loge, my buddy got the tickets through his work so I'm not sure where I'm sitting exactly yet. You going to any? It's going to be an awesome series.
