At the midpoint of the season, here's a look at the awards as well as a bunch of stats to perhaps provide some insight into what's happening thus far in the 2009-2010 campaign.

Check out the NHL Power Rankings and Player Rankings.  For the college hockey crowd, I'm attempting to include NCAA player rankings, even if it's nearly impossible to combine conferences and have a fair measurement.  Call it a starting point.

First, the awards...

(Feel free to compare with my opinion at the quarter point of the season).
