This is the Hall of Fame edition of the Calder trophy and tonight in San Jose there is a good chance we will be watching the 2011 winner of the Calder. Logan Couture, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall are 1st, 3rd and 4th respectively in rookie scoring and along with the Canes' Jeff Skinner and Capitals' John Carlson they are the five front-runners.

Do you remember the wickedly awesome video game for Intellivision, Slap Shot: Super Pro Hockey? If not, the pic above illustrates the kick-ass graphics, and the advanced thinking of why the NHL should go to a 3-on-3 format before the shootout.

In 1972 the fourth best-selling popular music artist in the history of recorded music, ABBA, was formed and they went on to sell 375 million records worldwide. Dancing Queen, Fernando, Money, Money, Money and Knowing Me, Knowing You all became #1 hits. Anni-Frid "Frida" Lynqstad, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Anderson and Agnetha Faltskog had incredible chemistry, and tonight Tom Renney will play Magnus Paajarvi and Linus Omark together for the first time in their hockey lives hoping they form some sort of Swedish magic.

In 2007 the Houston Dynamo of the MLS made the playoffs, and were looking for their 2nd consecutive championship and had this highly motivating slogan of; DREAM. SCREAM. BELIEVE. It clearly worked as the Dynamo won their second straight title.

On February 24th, 2009 Steven Stamkos played his first NHL game at Rexall Place. That night he scored his 11th goal of the season, had four shots, won eight of 12 faceoffs and played 17:17. When we left Rexall that night, little did we know that was the begining of Stamkos' coming out party. He went on to score 12 goals in the final 20 games that year, followed it up with 51 last season, and now he has 21 goals in 28 games to start this year; 84 goals in his last 130 NHL games. Not bad.
The scary part for the Oilers is that he comes into Edmonton tonight with no goals and only two points in his last six games. It's only a matter of time before he breaks out, and tonight will likely be the night.
