actual stats...[edit]

it would be interesting to have the actual stats (as in what was their plus-number). it would make this article more of a resource. Themindset 17:01, 25 April 2006 (UTC)


  • not sure how accurate or reliable these are, but this page has plus/minus totals: [1] 71.237.38.227 04:49, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Naming history[edit]

I've added the history of names for the award as far the NHL Official Guide and Record Book tells me. The 1989-90 book (covering 1988-89) has no entry in the awards section for plus/minus, which explains that season's listing. I also made the somewhat bold step of changing what the current name for the trophy is, because I can't find anything reliable that says that it's being sponsored by Alka-Seltzer again. A search for 'redden rozsival "bud light" 2006' returns far more results than 'redden rozsival alka 2006', which returns mostly results based on this article. So if someone can find a definitive source for the Alka-Seltzer naming, please post it. Aottley 01:39, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Mm, not only is the award not mentioned in the 89-90 book, but they wipe out all mention of the Emery Edge award winners of past years. Of course, there are about two pages worth of ephemeral Dodge awards, showing who was the King Sponsor de jour ... Ravenswing 06:22, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Individual or Team[edit]

The first paragraph, explaining the award, says it's a players' award. Later on, it mentions teams. I would suggest instead it would be worded more like "...won 4 times by an Edmonton Oiler, 3 times each by a Philadelphia Flyer,..." etc. Also, if you're going to make such a summary, why not list all teams and the count, perhaps in tabular form? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rchandra (talkcontribs)

1998-99 - who won?[edit]

Most sources (all the sources I can find actually) say LeClair. [3][4][5][6] Yet Karpovtsev did have a better plus/minus (+38) compared to LeClair (+36). The only reason I can think of that LeClair would be given the award over Karpovtsev is Karpovtsev only played in 58 games with the Rangers and Maple Leafs. Is there a minimum number of games a player must play in order to win the award? --Ulf17 (talk) 18:58, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Neither mind, I see it is 60 games. I will make the appropriate changes. --Ulf17 (talk) 18:59, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

what if there is a tie?[edit]

there is no mention in the article that says how they chose the winner when a tie occurs, which, according to the footnotes, happens ALOT of times —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.41.93.242 (talk) 19:38, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

1994-95 season[edit]

Is there info what was the game limit in that season? Obviously with the lockout wiping part of the season (the schedule was 48) the limit can't be 60.BleuDXXXIV (talk) 12:33, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Discontinued[edit]

This award was discontinued. hockeyDB says it was last awarded in 2008. NHL.com doesn't list it among the awards for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013. --Parkfly3 (talk) 08:01, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
