Pekka Rinne will probably win the Vezina.
Filip Forsberg will probably win the Calder.
These are two very good players who are making the Nashville Predators a very good hockey right now. Throw in James Neal who is proving he can still put up a decent number of points without Malkin, Mike Ribiero, who is proving that you don't need to be likeable to be good at hockey, and a very good blueline and the Predators are winning hockey games despite being near the bottom of the league last year.
The Leafs on the other hand are coming off the most embarrassing loss imaginable, have lost their last two, and most importantly are dealing with Phil Kessel not being liked by the media.

It snowed in Toronto last night! Finally, the seasons are starting to shift over. Even better, the snow actually survived into this morning, giving something that wasn't quite a Winter Wonderland, but still a nice change of pace. Until it slushes up, of course. Personally, I'm just waiting for the outdoor rinks to open. While I wait, I may as well answer some questions!

Toninato, Cameranesi take down No. 1 Minnesota
In case you were unaware, The University of Minnesota System has two NCAA Division 1 hockey programs.
The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, who play for the school's flagship campus in Minneapolis and St. Paul, are a very good hockey team. In fact, they were the top-ranked team in all of the NCAA heading into this weekend's home-and-home with their cross-campus rivals, the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. You've probably guessed that the Bulldogs represent the University of Minnesota-Duluth campus, and you probably already know that Leafs prospects Dominic Toninato and Tony Cameranesi play for UMD.
