Monday's Dump & Chase: Why You Should Worry About John Klingberg

If you haven't noticed a lot of people in the national media have gotten bored with #PrinceFilip being the obvious (this is a non-negotiable point, if you disagree, leave) Calder Trophy leader. Admittedly Aaron Ekblad, as we saw last night, may be having the best rookie season of any 18 year old defenseman ever, and Johnny Hockey has brought his team new hope, but Filip Forsberg's play has redefined his team, not to mention he is still chugging long at about a point per game. No, the man we should all be worried about is John Klingberg. Voters love a late season push, and the Dallas Star has been a solitary bright spot on an otherwise wonderfully dysfunctional team. The 22 year old has nine points (four goals, five assists) in his last five games and shows no signs of slowing down, and suddenly seems like the ‘sexy pick’ for #Cal9er. But who cares, this season is perfect, forget all of this, it doesn't matter in the end we know only one person can win. Oh, in other news, we are back in first:)
