    It's as if the players on those teams think with a single brain, because it's so rare to find any of them out of sync with their teammates on the ice.

    Lots of interesting speculation in this thread about the Masterton Trophy; there seem to be several potential plotlines involved, including ex-King Brian Boyle.

    Just a couple of tidbits about previous winners -

    Up to the 2013-14 season, the leading team numbers:

    NYR, MTL - 5 winners

    BOS - 4 winners

    LAK, PHI - 3 winners (LAK: Dave Taylor, Butch Goring, Bob Bourne)(PHI: Ian Laperrier)

    SJK / ANH have 1 winner apiece; the Sharks recipient was Tony Granato

    Since the 2012-14 season, 2 Minnesota Wild goalies have won the award:

    Josh Harding, 2012-13 Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in the offseason, he posted a shutout in his first game back, subsequently missed 33 more in the regular season, then played 5 playoff games.

    Devan Dubnyk, 2014-15 Led the last-place Wild to the playoffs following a mid-season trade, going 27–9–2 with a 1.78 goals-against average, .936 save percentage and five shutouts. The Wild were Dubnyk's fifth team over the previous two seasons.

    It's so frequently such an inspirational human interest story.
