The NHL just released the candidates for the rookie of the year - the Calder Trophy. The final three were Columbus goaltender Steve Mason, Anaheim winger Bobby Ryan and Chicago winger Kris Versteeg. The Rangers had just one rookie to play a significant role this season, Lauri Korpikoski and let's face it - he didn't have a chance.
Actually, Versteeg and Ryan don't have a chance against the goaltender who carried a mediocre team into the playoffs. So the Scotty Hockey pick is Steve Mason. Going beyond this season, I think Ryan will prove to be a better player (Versteeg is a complimentary-type, nothing more) but Mason helped Manny Malhotra get back into the playoffs so all credit given and due (yeah Manny!).
