As expected by everyone, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been nominated as one of the three finalists for the 2011-12 Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year in the NHL.

Depending on how you look at things, and depending on your desire to derive meaning from absolutely nothing - the NHL.com article annoucing the finalists saves the description of our beloved NUUUUUUUUGE for last confirming he is the favourite to win:

While Landeskog's spot in the NHL on opening night was expected, some weren't as sure about Nugent-Hopkins, despite his status as the first player taken in the 2011 draft, because of his 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame. However, he had a goal in his first game and a hat trick in his third, silencing all doubters.

 

He finished with 52 points despite playing only 62 games -- 20 fewer than Landeskog -- because of a shoulder injury. The youngest regular in the NHL this season -- he didn't turn 19 until April 12 -- he had 18 goals, three multi-goal games, and five assists in a game, Nov. 19 against Chicago. He was the fourth-ever 18-year-old to have a five-assist game, and the first since Kovalchuk on Jan. 19, 2002. 

"He makes it looks so easy, but it's hard," Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff said of Nugent-Hopkins' passing skills.

As we all know an Edmonton Oiler has not won a Calder Trophy including NHL Never Star Jason Bonsignore who was robbed for his back in his unsuccessful 1995 rookie campaign. Now it's payback time NHL awards department.

But with Nuge's dad Ted being such a weiner in the US, are his chances for winning being hurt? #NugeForCalder

Also an important note would be that even when you look at time on ice, RNH was getting a fair bit less ice time than Landy. So with 20 games less and less ice time he still managed to put up the same point on a much sh*tty er team.

I don't get so what if he wins, does it make him a better player.

Gabriel Landeskog deserves to win it anyway.

You fellas are setting yourself up for a letdown. There's only one trophy that matters in Edmonton, and the Calder isn't it.
