I'm very surprised that Joe Thorton won the Hart Ross trophy I really thought it was going to be Jaromir Jagr, but I'm happy a Canadian one it. Also I'm not surprise on the other selections.


I wasn't surprised with any of them except for the Hart Memorial and Vezina. I thought that Jagr and Brodeur would win them, respectfully.

I agree with you that Brodeur should of won instead of Kipper yes he didnt have a good start but at the end of the season like the last 30 games he was the best in the league.
