Through games of January 1, this is how the top 50 NHL scoring race looks. But first, here is my take on the NHL awards right now:

  • Hart Trophy (Most Valuable Player) – Alexander Ovechkin, WSH (runners-up are Joe Thornton, SJ and Henrik Sedin, VAN) – I think the runner-up spots are totally wide-open, but Ovechkin clearly stands on top
  • Calder Trophy (Rookie of the Year) – Tyler Myers, BUF (runners-up are John Tavares, NYI and Matt Duchene, CDO)
  • Vezina Trophy (Best Goaltender) – Ryan Miller, BUF (runner-ups are Martin Brodeur, NJ and Ilya Bryzgalov, PHX) – this race is really close
  • Norris Trophy (Best Defenseman) – Duncan Keith, CHI (runner-up is Mike Green, WSH) – another really wide-open race

and based on my projected stats below:

  • Art Ross Trophy (Scoring Champion) – Alexander Ovechkin, WSH (runners-up are Joe Thornton, SJ and Marian Gaborik, NYR)
  • Rocket Richard Trophy (Goal-scoring Champion) – Alexander Ovechkin, WSH (runners-up are Marian Gaborik, NYR and Ilya Kovalchuk, ATL)
  • Wayne Gretzky Trophy (unofficial assist champ) – Joe Thornton, SJ (runners-up are Brad Richards, DAL and Martin St. Louis, TB)

The projected top 50:

  1. Alex Ovechkin, WSH (74 games) 60 goals, 56 assists, 116 points.
  2. Joe Thornton, SJS (82 games) 22 goals, 88 assists, 110 points.

The Grizzlies suffered the 400th loss in their Memphis history last night to the Portland Trail Blazers. It only took them 137 games to lose their last 100, which is their fastest pace of losing since leaving Vancouver. Here’s how long it took them to lose every 100 games:

  • 141 games to lose their first 100 (41-100)
  • 230 games (!) to lose their 2nd 100 (they were a pseudo-respectable 171-200 overall at that point)
  • 156 games to lose their 3rd 100 (227-300 all time)
  • 137 games to lose their 4th 100 (264-400 all time)

I was saying to a friend last night that I can’t wait for Vancouver to get another NBA team so I can stop cheering for the Grizzlies. My god it’s awful.

The NHL season has been going for just over a month, which is enough time to take a first peek at how the scoring race would finish if all players kept going at their current pace. Some of the projected numbers are still a little off due to the small sample of games played to date.

It’s like after the first game of the season when someone scores a hat trick. It’s fun to say “he’s on pace to finish the season with 246 goals!”, which is correct but of course not at all realistic. While the projections are a little more realistic after a month, you’ll notice the imbalance between goals and assists for some players is still extreme.

Ilya Kovalchuk, for example, has 9 goals and 1 assist. It’s extremely unlikely that he will finish the season with 9 times as many goals as assists (the greatest imbalance in my memory is Lanny McDonald with the Calgary Flames in 1982-83 when he 66 goals and 32 assists, which is just over 2 goals per assist). Martin St. Louis has 3 goals and 13 assists so far. His career record suggests he will finish with more assists than goals, but not 4.3 times as many assists as goals.

The projected point totals are more reasonable, but still a little high. That’s because players who have gotten off to fast starts will not be able to maintain that pace for the entire season. But hey, it’s still interesting…

One quick note on injured players…I haven’t projected how many games they are expected to miss, so the table assumes they play all remaining games starting tonight, November 7. So the projections for players like Kovalchuk and Malkin that are still injured and expected to miss more games are high.

The season is now complete (except for the playoff in the AL Central between the Twins and Tigers). So here are the final AL Cy Young rankings based on the admittedly unscientific and ad hoc formula explained here. The intent was to consider the types of factors that real-life baseball writers would consider, so there are no advanced xfip-type stats here. These are not who I think is the best, but who I think is most likely to win.

That being said, my gut says the final rankings are wrong. Zack Greinke was clearly the best pitcher in baseball this year, yet his lack of wins pushes him down to 3rd in these rankings. Some voting writers have been quoted saying that not having enough wins may cost Greinke the award, but we’ll have to wait and see. The predicted winner, by the way, did not appear atop these rankings until this final post after an outstanding finish to the season. The final rankings:

  1. Felix Hernandez, Mariners 156 points
  2. Roy Halladay, Blue Jays 150 points
  3. Zack Greinke, Royals 146 points
  4. Justin Verlander, Tigers 137 points
  5. CC Sabathia, Yankees 128 points
  6. Josh Beckett, Red Sox 73 points
  7. Jon Lester, Red Sox 66 points
  8. Jered Weaver, Angels 54 points
  9. Edwin Jackson, Tigers 40 points
  10. Kevin Millwood, Rangers 31 points

Perhaps this is not Greinke’s quite yet? Roy Halladay threw another complete game shutout last night, his 3rd of the year. That ties him with Greinke atop the AL. It was also Halladay’s 8th complete game of the year, putting him 2 ahead of Greinke for first in the league. His ERA dropped below 3 (now 2.90), ranking him third. And it was his 16th win, one more than Greinke.

I know most of the more sophisticated stats still put Greinke ahead, but in the minds of the relative simpletons in the media who vote for the Cy Young, Halladay is now on par or ahead of Greinke in many of the key stats. Not to mention the infuriating American tendency to consider irrelevant facts like career achievement in voting for one-year awards (how else to explain Martin Scorsese finally winning his Oscar), which also favours Halladay over Greinke, and I can see Roy winning another one.

Felix Hernandez has also been sensational lately and ranks ahead of Halladay in wins, strikeouts and ERA, but combine his youth and his West Coast address and I don’t see him realistically finishing higher than 3rd.

So the final week still shapes up to be very very interesting. CC Sabathia, by the way, still has a shot at 20 wins, which likely weighs heavily in some of the decrepit voters’ minds. The standings through Sept. 25:

  1. Roy Halladay, Blue Jays 153 points
  2. Zack Greinke, Royals 151 points
  3. Felix Hernandez, Mariners 149 points
  4. CC Sabathia, Yankees 128 points
  5. Justin Verlander, Tigers 128 points
  6. Josh Beckett, Red Sox 80 points

Here are the latest rankings, thru Sept. 23. And despite some members of the media who apparently won’t vote for Greinke if he has fewer than 16 wins, I don’t think there’s much debate about this anymore. Might be far more interesting to see who finishes second.

  1. Zack Greinke, Royals 156 points
  2. Roy Halladay, Blue Jays 139 points
  3. Felix Hernandez, Mariners 138 points
  4. CC Sabathia, Yankees 134 points
  5. Justin Verlander, Tigers 115 points
  6. Josh Beckett, Red Sox 83 points
  7. Jon Lester, Red Sox 64 points
  8. Scott Feldman, Rangers 59 points
  9. Edwin Jackson, Tigers 55 points
  10. Jered Weaver, Angels 53 points
