Tim Thomas did something that no one has done since Bernie Parent in 1975 by winning the Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe Trophy, and now the Vezina Trophy. As he reflected on this accomplishment, he might have given himself a new nickname: “The redneck of goaltending.”

The PHT staff makes a case for each of the three Vezina Trophy finalists.

The Nashville Predators have filed for arbitration with Shea Weber; not so much to settle a salary dispute, but more to protect themselves from any potential offer sheets.
May 10, 2011, 7:06 PM EST
While it was the Predators deepest run into the playoffs, it still came up short of the Stanley Cup. Just what went wrong for Nashville? The reasons are apparent.

May 6, 2011, 1:00 PM EST
Ryan Kesler’s emergence in the playoffs is making all the difference for Vancouver. Also, adulation for Pekka Rinne and James van Riemsdyk, piling on Alexander Semin, and perhaps some premature looking ahead to the next round.
May 6, 2011, 12:08 AM EST
It was a rough and ugly game, but Ryan Kesler’s game winning goal provided a beautiful moment. His performances in the last two games might also make him the Predators’ first true playoff villain, too.

It’s not the goaltending’s complete fault for what went wrong against the Bruins in Game 1, the Flyers defense shares a big part of the blame as well.
May 1, 2011, 1:54 AM EST
Matt Halischuk may have won it in double overtime for Nashville, but they never would’ve done it without Pekka Rinne.
Apr 29, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
Every good drama needs a heel and the Canucks are playing that role to the hilt. Also: Rinne and Luongo look for real, Barry Trotz’s slow burn, Winnipeg madness, and making clean hits the new dirty. Thanks NHL!
Apr 29, 2011, 3:04 AM EST
While it looked like a 1-0 loss on the scoreboard for the Predators, it might as well have been 100-0 for coach Barry Trotz as he sounded off after his team’s loss in Game 1 to Vancouver.
