Additional questions:

Who do you wish would win the Stanley Cup? Chicago Blackhawks

Who will be awarded the 2016 Conn Smythe Trophy? Brent Seabrook

My son looked at me like I grew another head when I told him I picked Brent Seabrook.  He thinks he is a great player, but he thinks it will be Patrick Kane, which I actually agree with.  When I told him my reason for picking Seabrook, he said I had better explain why.  He couldn't believe my reasoning.  So here it is:  we have four pets named after Blackhawk players.  Three have won the Conn Smyth Trophy: Kane, Toews, and Keith.  Poor Seabrook is feeling left out.  I know the chances of a defenseman getting it is slim but hey got to look out for the Guinea pig (he's the white one).
