Sunday Most Valuable Clips

Greg Fiume

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Aw, yeah.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P! Alex Ovechkin has been named the winner of the 2012-2013 Hart Trophy, awarded to the player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team, as voted upon by the members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. [NHL.com, Rink, Dump 'n' Chase, WaPo, CSNW, Eye on Hockey]
  • Polarize much? Ovi's award has some folks cheering and others, sneering:
    • Cheer: Here's how he did it. [Puck Daddy, and look for our take soon]
    • Sneer: Say, the award criteria kept us from voting for the guy we wanted to vote for! So let's rewrite them or something. Because fairness. [Globe and Mail]
    • Cheer: 2/3 of a cheer, anyway. The World Wide Leader's panel breaks down who they voted for - and why. [ESPN (video)]
    • Sneer: He was the right choice for the wrong reasons. [Toronto Sun]
    • Cheer-y: IslesNation was hoping for better for John Tavares, but Ovi is in "seriously rarefied air." [Lighthouse Hockey]
    • Sneer-y: Weird award choices on a night of weirdness. Whatevs. [Sporting News]
  • Oh and BTW, Ovechkin was also adjudged to be the MVP for fantasy owners, as well. [NHL.com]
  • Finally, happy 32nd birthday to Alexandre Giroux, happy 35th to Dainius Zubrus, happy 59th to Tony White, and a stick salute for all the Dads, on their Day.
