Jimmah with a shot at the Vezina?

Hey, all along, we've been saying, "look out, ol' Tiberius has a shot at grabbing some hardware at the end of the season," he's been playing solidly, and maybe there's an outside chance that he pulls down the Calder Trophy for best rookie in the NHL. That in itself would be a pretty sweet trick, as no Red Wing has grabbed that trophy since Roger Crozier won it in 1965. But I hadn't heard any speculation whatsoever past that point.

Taking a peek at the ESPN.com recap for tonight's game, an outcome I can't quite wrap my head around (a scoreless tie? Following by Jimmy Howard stopping ~10 shootout shots to earn a shootout in the 11th round? For serious?), I notice a sidebar, with a thought from Scott Burnside that Howard might actually be in the discussion about the Vezina Trophy.

It's worth a read, even if I don't think anything will come of that speculation. Burnside goes as far to say that, hey, Ryan Miller is getting attention as a potential HART Trophy candidate, why not Howard as well? I'm not anywhere nearing that stance, just passing on some speculation from the ESPN page.

But it has been interesting to see how our collective response to Jimmy Howard has changed over the past few weeks of post Olympic play. Now to see if any of our breathen will bite on the rumors mentioned by Rosenthal, and whether we might see a couple of Howard for Hart posts show up on WiiM.
