Seriously who voted for some of these players? Among the highlights of this year's mind boggling awards nominations that deserve a facepalm: Defensive Player of the Year: Justin Martin, Kevin Brownell, Curtis Manning, John Lafontaine, Bradley Kri, Brodie Merrill, zero players from the Saskatchewan Rush Goaltender of the Year: Alex Buque, Nick Rose Rookie of the Year: Eric Fannell, Dan Craig, Drew Belgrave MVP: Dane Dobbie, all 6 players nominated from the non-playoff bound Toronto Rock Coach/GM of the Year: Anyone involved with the Vancouver Stealth franchise It seems like the voters just voted for a bunch of players on their favourite teams like a fan would this year, especially in the case of the Toronto Rock. I mean Drew Belgarve rookie of the year? Are you kidding me? Then we have a bunch of players who would legitimately have trouble making the Saskatchewan Rush practice squad being nominated for defensive player of the year.
