NHL Awards 2012: Did Claude Giroux Win The NHL 13 Popularity Contest? (YES)

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 26: Claude Giroux #28 of the Philadelphia Flyers takes a shot in warmups prior to the game against the New York Rangers while wearing his Winter Classis knit hat at Madison Square Garden on November 26, 2011 in New York City. (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)

Update: Claude Giroux wins because he's better than you.

Sorry for the slowness around the site so far this week. A cold has knocked me back a bit, but I'm on my way to Pittsburgh tomorrow morning for the draft, so we'll be back to full speed in the morning. For now, it's NHL Awards time, and Claude Giroux has a chance to become the first Flyer since 1999 to grace the cover of EA's NHL game.

Yep, that's right: No Flyers are nominated for any actual awards, but we'll learn tonight whether or not Giroux is more popular than a goalie who plays hockey in Tennessee. This has the potential to be quite the bruise to the ego.

We'll learn the winner at some point during tonight's show. 7 p.m. on NBC Sports Network.
