Don't know I ever saw him play to be honest. I thought the St. Louis Russian or that kid for the Wings would be in the race, but they both hit the brick wall and went off the Radar.

Seems to me that the kid in FLA did more with a crappy team while Gallagher had the good fortune to play for the Canadian diving team.

Ha.

A little sour grapes on my part but Yakupov should have been one of the fiianlists. He played on a bad team led all rookies in goals and tied for the scoring, Huberdeau is a good choice but look at Saad he played between Towes and Hossa all season, nothing against him but who wouldn't have a good year playing with those two.
