I continued my trend of baking things to show my level of hockey nerd last night and made Hanky a cake to celebrate his Art Ross trophy and his Hart trophy nomination. There’s something calming and meditative about dyeing icing blue and green. Then, I stumbled upon a calendar this morning while looking something else up and realized that today is my one year anniversary writing here. Plus it’s game day! So really this cake can celebrate a whole trio of things.

1) What I’ve been talking up all season was officially announced today… *drum roll noises* Hanky is nominated for the Hart trophy! Wooooo! MVP! What more can I say about Hanky at this point, really? I made the man 100 cuppycakes for Swedish meatball’s sake. But yeah he’s totally rad.

Ovechkin shouldn’t win it because as the lovely stats doctor Ryan Classic tells me the Capitals were actually BETTER when Ovechkin was injured or *cough* what’s that word I’m looking for? Oh right *whispers* suspended. His numbers never tell a lie, kittens.

Total points percentage: .739
without Ovechkin: .750 with Ovechkin: .737

Total win percentage: .659
without Ovechkin: .700 with Ovechkin: .653

Goals for average all season: 3.88
without Ovechkin: 4.70 with Ovechkin: 3.76

Crosby shouldn’t win it because…well he’s actually pretty damn fantastic…but he needs to learn the wonderful lesson of SHARING. He has a Cup, and a gold medal, and a junior gold medal, and a hart trophy already, and the best bedroom in Mario Lemeiux’s basement, and all the very prettiest very blondest puck bunnies. Surely it’s Hanky’s turn for this one little trophy.

I read on twitter earlier that the boys gave Hanky a standing ovation when he walked into the dressing room today. That’s so freakin adorable I made high pitched noises that only dogs can here when I first read it.

2) I’ve been searching for a job for a little while now and contemplating my future and all that and sometimes it’s so frustrating that I start dreaming of writing a kid’s book about giraffes playing hockey. Good idea or greatest idea?

3) Cabbie has a funny video with the Canucks about team unity. Watch it if you want to hear Bieksa sing (sort of) and find out who is the surprising guy that pays for the least team meals.
