    I didn't think Naz was eligible for the award but he is.

    on pace for 48 points in 48 games while logging 21+ a night. Sounds like ROTY to me
    "The way they play offense here is difficult for any quarterback," he said. "Every snap is an incredible decision. They're in a one-back offense, they can't run the ball against certain looks so they have to audible to some kind of a pass or a creative run to get away from trouble.
    "There's never a play in the game where Stafford can just turn around, hand the ball off and catch his breath. Every play he's researching the defense and they throw as much as anyone."

    I'd put my money on Tarasenko too. The guy's got mad skills and no shortage of skill to play with on that St. Louis team. I picked them to lose to the Rangers in the Finals.

    Did they change the rules? I think this might be an error.

    If he wins it great but there are 4 or 5 guys that i think are sure bets to outperform him.

    Tarasenko along with Evgeny Kuznetsov(who hasn't made it over to NA yet) were widely considered two of the best players outside of the NHL the last two years. It's not a shocker to see Tarasenko at the front of people's lists for ROY. Not at all. He's right up there with the Yakupov's and J. Schultz's this season. He would of been a top 10 pick his draft year but teams were put off because he didn't know how long he was going to stay in mother Russia. Blues stole him.

    Yup. St.Louis, which already has a ridiculous roster, steals arguably the best prospect in the world. The rich get richer. I have the Blues vs Rangers in the cup finals with Tarasenko finishing second in rookie votes for ROTY. I think Shultz wins it, he's so far advanced and he gets to play with the super best friends club out West, he'll have no problem racking the points up.
