Calder race getting tight...


Tavares is now 6 points back of Duchene.  True, he's played two more games, but the gap is certainly shrinking...and if he's broken out of his scoring slump, it could be a very tight race down to the end.  

One has to think that if the scoring race is close between these two, than the easy fallback vote is to give the Calder to Tyler Myers, or even Jimmy Howard.

Duchene does have other intangibles on his side--his team is competing for the playoffs (this is an advantage over Tavares only), and he's been a great two way player, not just a scorer.  He looks like a legitimate superstar out there--flying past opponents, making quick turns and dangles, and setting up great plays.

But the bottom line is, if he isn't at least a solid 7 points or so above the rest in rookie scoring when it's all said and done, I think the trophy may go to Myers.
