Calder Finalist Released

The finalist for the Calder trophy has been released. The three finalists are Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, New Jersey Devils' Adam Henrique , and Colorado Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog.

Henrique came up as a surprise., but he has excelled with 16 goals and 35 assists in 71 games.
Nugent-Hopkins before his injury had an amazing season with 18 goals and 34 assists in 62 games. A 0.83 points per game pace is nothing to be ashamed of. However, I believe he will need to show people he's not easily injured and pushed around to be a legitimiate star. It will be interesting to see what the injury will mean to his chances of winning the Calder.
Landeskog had 52 points in 82 games is nothing to be ashamed of, but his amazing +/- of 20 is amazing and will make him a legitimate contender for the award.

Other notables:
Matt Read: I believed Read should have be given the oppurtunity,but it just seems that someone had to be left off right?

Our choices:
Alson: Landeskog.
Geoffrey: Landeskog.
