PensBurgh Awards finalists

Ah yes, it's that time you've all been (not) waiting for, the PensBurgh Awards. This year we did it a little differently, so I'm going to mirror what the NHL does a bit by announcing the finalists for each award. The actual winners and voting tallies will be announced concurrently with the actual NHL awards.

Here's how it worked, in short: I asked each PensBurgh contributor to vote on the seven "big" awards in the same way that the NHL conducts its awards voting.

For the Hart, Norris, Selke, Calder, and Byng, each voter ranked five players, and those players were assigned point values of 10, 7, 5, 3, or 1 depending on where that voter ranked the player.

For the Vezina and Adams, each voter ranked three players, and those players were assigned point values of 5, 3, or 1 depending on where that voter ranked the player.

Without further ado, the finalists listed (alphabetically) for each award! It's a long one...
