ScriVezina?

Before we get too ahead of ourselves I fully admit that the proposition is absurd - Ben Scrivens has won only 9 games this season, and was a backup to two different goaltenders prior to being traded just a coupe of weeks ago to a bottom-feeding team ... But he is currently the NHL's save % leader, and posted the most amazing regular season single game performance for a goaltender last night and it has the league talking.

So let's talk.

If the Vezina were awarded today it would go to Ben Bishop, with Ryan Miller and Jonathan Bernier receiving considerable attention. Scrivens simply hasn't played enough or had enough impact to be considered for the award for the leagues best goaltender.

But what if - what if he sustains a .935+ save percentage throughout the remainder of the year, and as a result the Oilers win say 18 of 25 starts? Again, who's kidding who, right, but if that were to occur I daresay the man would deserve at least some 2nd and 3rd place Vezina votes.

ScriVezina! That's what I'm rooting for this season (because cheering for lottery finishes has lost its lustre).
