Cal Clutterbuck for the Calder Trophy.
Sure has a nice ring to it, eh?
And why not? He's on pace for high-teens goals, he's leading the entire league in hits, and he's leaving his imprint on every game he plays. He's helping the team win, and he's not causing it to lose. With 8 goals, he sits 8th on the team. He has more goals than Burns, SRV, Pouliot (RIP), Queen MAB, Kolanos, Gaborik, Shep, Johnsson, Schultz, Gillies, Weller,
Hell, he's got more goals than Johnsson, Schultz, Gillies, Weller,
Look, he probably won't win it. Chris Versteeg, Bobby Ryan, Drew Doughty and Steve Mason (Blake Wheeler, too, thanks CH)...they're all putting up very solid Calder-worthy campaigns. But shouldn't our Cal at least be in the conversation?
Says here he should.
