    So, I thought it would be fun to get everyone's opinion on who the USMB award winners are around here. But, to put a twist on things, I thought we could model it after the NHL. Below are a list of trophies that an NHL player can collect at the end of the year.

    For each award, apply the description to a board member and pass out your awards. If the response is good, I'll compile them and we can see who the true, user-voted all-stars are. (Assuming anyone cares)

    Art Ross Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the individual who scores the most points over the last season.

    Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the individual who best exemplifies perseverance and sportsmanship. (The nice guy award?)

    Calder Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the rookie of the year

    Hart Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the most valuable player. (Who do you think is the most valuable member of the board?)

    Jack Adams Award - Awarded to the coach of the year. (Could be interpretted as best teacher?)

    James Norris Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the most outstanding defenceman. (Who backs up their arguments the best?)

    Lady Byng Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the player combining ability and sportsmanship (Who debates at a high level without resorting to insults and other "bad sportsmanship"?)

    Hopefully some you will have their interest piqued enough to pick out some winners.

    Fun idea, Clay. Maybe you need to start the ball rolling with some nominees of your own...
