    Introducing the Nominees for the Single Player Awards!!!

    Les Cunningham Award
    Awarded to the league's most valuable player.


    Criteria: The MVP 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 MVP, in no particular order:
    1) Production in relation to peers. Players who produce more statistically are generally the most valuable to their teams.
    2) Individual record. Individual record is a very important and telling statistic. To be considered for MVP 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 for playing with a talented line. However, 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 non-playoff team to win MVP. 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 MVP. 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.
    6) Position. In the AHL, it is extremely rare for a non-forward to win MVP. For a defenseman or goalie to win/be considered for MVP, 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.

    Eddie Shore Award
    Awarded to the AHL's best defenseman.

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. The Shore 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 (the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated on an equal footing with the defenseman's offensive production.
    2) Individual record. Individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. To be considered for the Shore 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. However, 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.

    Aldedge "Baz" Bastien Memorial Award
    Awarded to the league's top goaltender.

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. 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. Individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for this award you should be posting at minimum a respectable record. Also note that to be eligible for this award 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. 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.

    Pavel Datsyuk Award
    Awarded to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game

    Criteria:
    Considering the nature of our league, it will almost always be the case that players deserving of nomination for the Datsyuk 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 Datsyuk is awarded to players in the AHL that play the position of center. Playing wing should hinder, but not preclude, a player from winning or being nominated for the Datsyuk.

    1) Stats to consider when evaluating players to nominate for the Datsyuk are the following: Record, +/-, PIM, FO%, GAA, and PPKE. Note that players should not receive a massive bonus due to a high +/- simply due to outlandish offensive production. GAA 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. However, 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 GAA 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 GAA 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.

    Fred T. Hunt 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 Fred T. Hunt specifically are PIMS (low is good) and hits (low is good). Also note that the Fred T. Hunt 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 Fred T. Hunt 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.
    [B]3) Special circumstances. The league reserves the right to ignore the above criteria for the Fred T. Hunt 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.[/B]
