Morning Skate: Award winners

Tuesday is upon us.

Tuesday is here! Was your Monday everything you hoped it would be?

The NHL announced its award-winning players yesterday, and while the Bruins didn’t get any new major silverware, they were well represented.

David Pastrnak’s place on the First All-Star Team was particularly noteworthy, given the company.

Anyways, there will be plenty of people who say “who cares, it’s all about the Cup,” which...sure. But you can’t win every year. NICE JOB, EVERYONE.

Any surprises for you among the major award winners? Draisaitl and Hellebucyk in the Hart and Vezina were slam dunks.

You could probably make arguments in the Norris (Josi and Carlson) and the Calder (Makar and Hughes).

Both of those were very close races, and depending on your POV, it was either the right call or the runner-up got robbed.

Today’s highlight

This was a great goal by David Pastrnak.

Today’s discussion topic

Create a new NHL award. Who would you name it after, and what would be the criteria?
