A quarter to remember has Sid as top dog in Hart race

The Hart Trophy goes to the player in the National Hockey League that is considered to be the most valuable to his team.

By that definition if you find a player that provides the most offense to his team you'd put him up for the Hart Trophy right away. But, that player would also have to do plenty of other things to warrant such a prestigious honor.

He'd have to be the leader of the team in ways that go beyond just the motivational dressing room speeches. He'd have to be the guy that always shows up in clutch situations. He'd have to be remarkably consistent. He'd have to be one of the top defensive players on the team, an important contributor on special teams.

If he also won faceoffs at an alarming clip, well, that would only strengthen his case for the Hart Trophy.

Calder Trophy tracker: Couture a scoring star

Buffalo's Tyler Myers became only the second defenseman in 12 seasons to win the Calder Trophy, but could one of this year's rookie crop make it two in a row for rearguards? Three rookie defensemen -- Anaheim's Cam Fowler, Colorado's Kevin Shattenkirk and Washington's John Carlson -- are among a deep pool of candidates for top honors at the midway point of the season.

Could a goalie make it two in three years for the netminders? Philadelphia's Sergei Bobrovsky and Washington's Michal Neuvirth started strong but have slowed a bit while Chicago's Corey Crawford and Nashville's Anders Lindback have both come on in the past six weeks.

The top forwards are a mix of youth and (relative) experience. Carolina's Jeff Skinner and Edmonton's Taylor Hall are leading members of the 2010 draft class who were both 18 years old on opening night while New York's Derek Stepan and San Jose's Logan Couture have had a little extra seasoning since being drafted.

Vezina Trophy tracker: Thomas has upper hand

After his brilliant showing at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver and his tremendous season-long play in leading the Buffalo Sabres to the Northeast Division title, there was little doubt when last season's NHL Awards rolled around that Ryan Miller would capture the Vezina Trophy as the League's best goaltender.

This season hasn't gone quite so smooth for Miller, both in terms of his health and the Sabres' play, and while he does his best to round back into form a number of candidates are emerging to try to wrest the Vezina away -- one has already won the award before, another is answering his doubters in a hockey hotbed and a third is looking to prove last season's heroics were no fluke.

The first quarter of the season has been marked by many great goaltending performances -- here is NHL.com writer Brian Hunter's take on who looks to be the most Vezina-worthy to this point.
