A split and a landslide: Fake Team Awards X

on
Thanks to those who voted, who split their vote for one fake trophy but gave the other to a longtime Tiger in a landslide. The Seventh Player Award was the split one, but Scooter Vaughan edged his teammates narrowly. Vaughan, whose three PTOs last year earned him an AHL deal this year, played on a […] [Read More]

Call For Votes: Fake Team Awards X

Time hurries on, and for the 10th time, it’s time to vote for our Fake Team Awards. You guys pick the winners of two fake trophies: Fan Favorite (choose your own criteria; he’s your favorite) and Seventh Player (performance beyond expectations, on which I reserve the right to break a tie but probably won’t). You […] [Read More]

Splitting the vote: Fake Team Awards IX

on
Thanks to the electorate, increased over last year, which produced a couple of very close votes. I was worried for a while that one award would split three ways. It didn’t, but barely. Fan Favorite goes to Justin Johnson, by a vote over Brett Gallant and Scooter Vaughan. All good guys — team full of […] [Read More]

Disenfranchised: Fake Team Awards VIII

on

Especially thankful for the eighth. The first seven left a seven-way tie for both awards. The eighth broke […] [Read More]

Incumbent wins: Fake Team Awards VII

on
Hearty thanks for 18 votes, which I think is a record for this. Right on. Fan Favorite went strongly to Micheal Haley, who became the first repeat winner of the award. We said last year how he had blossomed over the years from call-up to NHL regular. Unfortunately for him, he spent more time here […] [Read More]
