    Hart Memorial Trophy
    "Awarded to the league's most valuable player."

    Criteria:
    The Hart may very well be the most difficult award to judge in a league like ours. Many factors must be considered other than what initially meets the eye. All of the following must be considered when determining those who should be nominated for the Hart, in no particular order:
    1) Production in relation to peers. It goes without saying that players who produce more statistically are generally the most valuable to their teams.
    2) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for the Hart you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.
    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a player should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing with a talented line. In the real NHL, players frequently win the Hart Trophy despite playing alongside other superstar caliber players. On the flip side of this, players should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team or with below average linemates.
    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.
    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that players will get more points against weaker teams. Players should only be downgraded in this area if they acquire a significant and disproportionate amount of their points in games against non-playoff teams. In especially tight cases between players, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that players face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the players have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.
    5) Team performance. It is extremely rare for a player on a below average (non-playoff) team to win the Hart. It shouldn't be cut and dry that your team has to make the playoffs to be considered, but note that it should take a rather herculean effort from a player on a non-playoff team to win/be considered for the Hart. Examples of this are players on losing teams that display a winning record, significantly better individual production than the rest of their team, all while playing against top quality competition throughout the season. Cases of this happening should be VERY few and far between.
    6) Position. It is extremely rare for a non-forward to win the Hart, especially in the modern day NHL. This obviously isn't the real NHL, but similar reasons for this still apply. For a defenseman or goalie to win/be considered for the Hart, they would need to put up a seasonal performance that significantly stands out among the peers at their position, along with stacking up in the gauntlet of all other listed criteria.
    7) Perceived individual skill. Players who are widely recognized to be more skilled at the game should be given a slight leg up over players who have more of a, for lack of a better term, "fluky" season. This should only be considered in situations where the other criteria does not provide a clear winner. It's a simple fact that the superstars of the league win the Hart trophy 99% of the time.

    James Norris Memorial Trophy

    "Awarded to the defenseman who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position."

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. It is very important to note, however, that the Norris is not the "best offensive defenseman" award. Many other factors are at play here, and statistical production is only one part of this. It is, however, still an important part. Let it be noted that GAA for defensemen (that is, the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated on at least an equal footing with the defenseman's offensive production.
    2) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for the Norris you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.
    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a player should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing with a talented line. In the real NHL, players frequently win the Norris Trophy despite playing alongside other superstar caliber players. On the flip side of this, players should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team or with below average linemates.
    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams (note that included in this is GAA. Analyze the average goals his team allows when a defenseman plays, and not simply the defenseman's offensive output in these games). Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.
    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that players will get more points (and allow less goals) against weaker teams. Players should only be downgraded in this area if they acquire a significant and disproportionate amount of their points (or allow a significant and disproportionately low amount of goals) in games against non-playoff teams. In especially tight cases between players, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that players face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the players have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.

    Vezina Trophy

    "Awarded to the league's top goaltender."

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. It goes without saying that goaltenders with high SV%, low GAA, and the most shutouts are generally the "best" in the league. In particular, SV% should be weighted slightly more than GAA when analyzing stats. Also compare how a goalie did in comparison to the other goalie(s) on his team throughout the season. This gives some extra insight into how truly outstanding a goalie's performance was.
    2) Individual record. In a league where goalies don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for the Vezina you should be posting at minimum a respectable record. Also note that to be eligible for the Vezina you need to have played the most goalie games on your team. You can't be judged as the best goalie in the league if you weren't even judged as the best goalie on your team. It's preferable for goalies to have gotten a brunt of the workload throughout the season as opposed to an average 5/4 split, but this is not mandatory for consideration.
    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a goalie should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing behind a talented team. In the real NHL, goalies frequently win the Vezina Trophy despite playing on teams filled with star players. On the flip side of this, goalies should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team.
    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a goalie who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.
    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that goalies will allow less goals against weaker teams. Goalies should only be downgraded in this area if they allow a significant and disproportionate amount of goals in games against playoff teams. In especially tight cases between goalies, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that they face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the goalies have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.

    Frank J. Selke Trophy

    "Awarded to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game."

    Criteria:

    Note that increasingly, although not exclusively, the Selke is awarded to players in the NHL that also produce at an above average level offensively. Considering the nature of our league, it will almost always be the case that players deserving of nomination for the Selke will also produce at an above average level offensively. However, offensive production specifically should not be a factor in determining who is more deserving of the award. Also note that increasingly, although not exclusively, the Selke is awarded to players in the NHL that play the position of center. Playing wing should hinder, but not preclude, a player from winning or being nominated for the Selke.
    1) Stats to consider when evaluating players to nominate for the Selke are the following: Record, +/-, PIM, FO%, AGA, and PPKE. Note that players should not receive a massive bonus due to a high +/- simply due to outlandish offensive production. AGA is a much more reliable indicator of defensive superiority than +/- is.
    2) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a player should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing with a talented line. In the real NHL, players frequently win the Selke Trophy despite playing alongside other superstar caliber players. On the flip side of this, players should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team or with below average linemates.
    3) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as AGA vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.
    As far as AGA is concerned, it is expected that players will allow less goals against weaker teams. Players should only be downgraded in this area if they allow a significant and disproportionate amount of goals in games against playoff teams. In especially tight cases between players, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that players face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the players have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.
    4) Perceived individual skill. Players who are widely recognized to be more defensively skilled at the game should be given a slight leg up over players who have more of a, for lack of a better term, "flukey" season. The Selke is one of the more difficult awards to hand out in our league due to the nature of not being able to watch every game and specifically analyze a player's performance. Many of the stats and indicators used in the real NHL to vote on this award are not available or simply unreliable in our virtual setting. Therefore, along with the criteria listed above, a player's generally accepted skill level needs to be taken into account.

    Lady Byng Memorial Trophy

    "Awarded to the player who exhibited outstanding sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

    Criteria:

    1) Stats. The only statistical criteria that can be applied to the Lady Byng specifically are PIMS (low is good) and hits (low is good). Also note that the Lady Byng is generally awarded to higher profile players in terms of offensive production. Combining the specific criteria with this general overarching pattern should narrow down the field of potential candidates quite easily.
    2) Conduct. The main role conduct can serve in determining the Lady Byng nominees/winner is fairly simple. If you act like a douchebag on the website, you're not winning this award. If you're generally/widely recognized within the community as a nuisance or negative influence, you aren't winning this award.
    3) Special circumstances. The league reserves the right to ignore the above criteria for the Lady Byng and hand out the award in situations where a player performs an action or actions that go above and beyond what is expected of them. This is done at the Commissioner's discretion, and is to be used in only the most deserving and rare of circumstances.
