Each year, the National Hockey League gives out awards that recognize the league’s top players. What these awards don’t recognize is what hockey fans all around the globe think.
Who was most valuable to his team? Who made the biggest impact? Every year, the league decides the answers to those questions. Now, it’s time for fans to come up with the answers.
Today, I am launching a series of articles titled “You Vote,” where readers of The Hockey Writers and average hockey fans get to decide who the best NHL players are. First up are the forwards.
Starting today, you will be able to vote on the best forward of the 2010-2011 NHL regular season. On Wednesday, May 25 at 6:00 PM EST, polls will close and results will be tallied. The top three players with the most votes will move onto the second round, with the winner being announced after the May 27, 6:00 PM EST deadline.
To vote, select who you think deserves the award via the poll below.
