This should be fun.
You know the PHWA? The Pro Hockey Writers Association? That group of guys who vote on the annual NHL Awards? Well I'm not one of those guys. I'm just a blogger. BUT I HAVE AN OPINION, DAMN IT!
This year, we have the PHBA. That's right - the Pro Hockey Bloggers Association. They were gracious enough to include us here at TheLeafsNation.com and I was the one who voted for this site.
Here's how I voted for every award and my justification for those votes. Feel free to call me a big idiot.

Cardiac Columbus almost pulls it off, the stupid Crosby criticism, and two teams force Game 7.

If I were rich, I’d go to the Stanley Cup Final.
Of course, if I were rich, the Leafs would be in the Stanley Cup Final because I would own the team and I’m a genius.
I would fly there on the team plane. I own that too, by the way.
It would have crazy high-speed Wi-Fi on the plane. I mean, even if I’m a crazy rich bajillionaire who owns an NHL team I’m still totally going to make YouTube videos.
It would have the most ballin’ menu you can find in the sky. It would serve the finest food from around the world, and more importantly, the “Steve Nachos” that the bar in my old neighborhood in Scarborough served. Oh, you don’t know what those are? Well you know how nachos always turn to goopy mush at the bottom and there are all kinds of toppings left over? Not with Steve Nachos because Steve Nachos come with extra chips! See? I’m smart. That’s how I became an NHL team-owning bajillionaire in the first place.
Here’s the problem though – I’m not an NHL team-owning bajillionaire. I am merely a blogger with a Wi-Fi connection and a pot of coffee.
Since I’m a long way away from my dream of eating Steve Nachos in the sky on my way to the Stanley Cup Final, I have looked into other ways to get there: My cool new ScotiaHockey NHL Debit Card.
First of all, it’s got a spiffy Leafs logo on it. I’d show you my card but that’d be dumb. Tell you what – here’s one that looks just like it.

The Ducks come back, the Blackhawks finish the Blues, and the Rangers are starting to look like contenders.
