    Posted the Calder thread so now it's this one. I'm doing forwards only, so this is kind of a prediction for Art/MVP. Only forwards generally win this award based on goaltender's posting legendary statistics in the past, being the most valuable, and not winning.

    Who do you got?

    Sid's going to stay healthy this year and run away with these awards. Its time for him to stay healthy. Last season he missed 12 games and lost the Art Ross by 4 points. He's ridiculous.

    Runner up will be John Tavares

    If Crosby is healthy, there is no better player in the game, but if Stamkos scores 60 goals again it could get interesting.

    If Sids healthy, its him... by a mile. If he's not healthy, I'd pick Geno.

    Yup pretty much this too. Evgeni Malkin is similar to Henrik Zetterberg, but better. By this I'm meaning when Datsyuk is out, Zetty plays his best hockey. It's the same case in Pittsburgh. When Sidney goes out, Malkin goes from a PPG player to about a 110 point player a season. His game is all-around better.

    It's really hard to predict though with Sidney Crosby always facing a serious injury each season. If he's healthy for 82 games, then I really think he coudl hit 125 points.

    I'm going to be honest when I say I'd be shocked. Despite winning it last year, I don't think I have him in my top 4-ish.

    I'm being an obvious homer but I'd also be shocked if Crosby plays a full season.

    It's gonna be Sid and its gonna be Sid by a landslide if he stays healthy.

    I can see Lindqvist being a dark horse if he puts up big numbers in AVs new system... But more realistically I see Tavares silencing the haters and placing second.

    OV seems to be coming back around the bend so I would throw him ahead of Hank too.

    It's not going to be Henrik Lundqvist.. Tim Thomas' 10/11 season was one of the greatest seasons in history by a goaltender. He posted absolute HOF worthy numbers and I don't think he got a nomination.

    It doesn't go to forwards or defenseman. This thread says MVP but it's still more so best forward of the year or so. I don't know how to say it.

    John Tavares is interesting. He posted I think one point under a PPG last season, and I think his team is pretty similar. I don't see him hitting 90 points this season, likely high 80s. Each season we seem to have that one scorer that hits that high 90s or 100 number. I really think we could see Steven Stamkos jump up and hit 100 points, possibly Malkin, and so on.

    I don't think Tavares gets a nomination.

    My darkhorse is Phil Kessel. I could see him hitting 95 points, and absolutely putting Toronto on his back, AGAIN.

    Kessel has too many goal scoring droughts to get points at that pace over a 82 game season. There is no way he hits 95 pts.

    If Sid stays healthy for atleast 90 percent of the season he will win it in a landslide. Nobody on the planet is even close to Sid...nobody.

    I agree with both points made. Kessel is far too inconsistent for that kind of production. And I'll even one up on did and say if he plays at least 65 games (roughly 75% of the season) he'll deservingly win the award

    Johnny T. Guy carried his team to the playoffs last year, deserved it over Ovechkin IMO. He is going to put up over 90 points this year.
