NHL Awards 2011

I decided that I want to do more predictions for the awards and aI think it will be very exciting. Here are my predictions for the 3 major awards.

1. The Hart Trophy = MVP

Winner: Corey Perry

Why: I think Corey Perry wins it. He was really good with the Ducks this year leading the league in goals and I think the playoff failure will not count much.

2. The Norris Trophy= Best D-Man

Winner: Nick Lidstrom

Why: No player has performed so great in his career late. He will play another year and aI think that will be a good year. He played very well in all 3 zones of the ice and can last long for a long time. I think he will really win.

3. The Vezina Trophy= Best Goalie

Winner: Tim Thomas

Why: He played really well the whole year and was hands down the best goalie in the league and topped it off with the Stanley Cup. He played well in the regular season and the playoffs and will win the award.

Sound off in the comments for who you think will win.

Playoff Predictions Results

Did anybody watch last nights game? I think it was a very good game and the best in the series. Patrice Bergeron played very well but I think Mark Recchi played well and deserved the cup the most. Here are my results for all of the rounds.

1st Round = I got 7 out of 8 correct. I cant believe I picked Boston to lose.

2nd Round = I was 0 out of 4. My worst yet.

3rd Round = A very good 2 out of 2, currently 9 out of 14.

Final = I picked Vancouver but Boston won.

Overall: Was 9 out of 15, not bad but not great.

Did you watch the game last night? Sound off in the comments about what you thought.

The Longshots Review

Last night I watched a movie called "The Longshots" starring Ice Cube and Keke Palmer. I will tell you the plot and then rate it.

The Plot: Jasmine Plummer [Keke Palmer]  is a girl who does not have any friends and is always alone. When her mom needs to work the nightshift she gets Jasmine's uncle Curtis [Ice Cube] to take care of her. When Curtis finds Jasmine has football talent he gets her on the local team. The team is very bad but Jasmine makes the team unstopable. Jasmine's father shows up who has abandoned her. The team the Mindin Browns makes the Pop Warner Super Bowl the team does not have enough money so Curtis gives his savings money he was using to get to Florida for. Jasmine's dad promised to be at the big game but he does not show up. In the dying seconds of the game with the Browns losing Jasmine throws a pass that is incomplete and the other team wins. As they return to Mindin the city is very proud of them.

The Rating: I would give this movie an A+. My parents even liked it. It was a very good film.

Favourite Photo of the Week

I really like this photo.

The Photo: With the new team in Winnipeg I really think this would be a great jersey for the new team if the name will be the Jets. The colours are very bold and I really like the logo. Imagine Andrew Ladd in this jersey it would be totally cool. I like the logo so much. I would buy this jersey in a heart beat. A great photo.

Winnipeg Jets

As some of you may have heard that the Atlanta Thrashers are being moved to Winnipeg. There are many questions but only one is clear... there will be fans! They have sold 1300 tickets in the first 10 minutes of the sale. Here are some good questions about the new franchise.

Question: What will the team be called?
Answer : I think the team will be called the Winnipeg Jets but there is some people who want to call it the Manitoba Moose. I think they will say the teams's name before the NHL Entry Draft.

Q: Will players sign there?
A: I think the Winnipeg Jets/ Manitoba Moose will have some trouble signing there. I think Andrew Ladd will sign and maybe a bunch of this years free agents will band together like Miami's Big 3. Imagine Brad Richards, and Teemu Selanne will be a very good team.

Q: How much is the team worth?
A: The most valuable NHL franchise is the Toronto Maple Leafs with $505 million dollars and the Atlanta Thrashers are second last with $135 million. The big difference is Toronto is avery hockey crazy city well Winnipeg dosent have very many population.

What about you, what are your answers to the questions?
