Philadelphia Flyers hold more superlatives; they love each other and it's beautiful

Best bromance is the best award, and Steve Mason might be too pure for this world.

More Philadelphia Flyers superlatives! They're not as awesome as the originals, but they're from the players' own ballots, so they're still pretty cool.

Part 1 saw a lot of divide amongst the team, particularly as a number of guys (ahem, Jakub Voracek) kept voting for themselves - although we did come close with almost everybody voting Sam Gagner as the team's best comedian. (Michael Raffl broke the streak; shame on him.)

Good news, though: Part 2 sees the Flyers vote two unanimous choices in best bromance, and best laugh. Plus a few others come close. Highlights:

  • For best personality, Steve Mason voted "everyone". This is ADORABLE. Mason is precious and must be protected at all costs. What a guy. He is the best guy.
  • Everyone agrees that Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Chris VandeVelde have the best bromance, but Bellemare drew a little heart on his ballot! Again: adorable, precious, must be protected at all costs. I love this team.
  • We found Andrew MacDonald's hidden value!
  • So is Michael Del Zotto a good actor, or is it because he's probably the guy on the team who puts the most care into his appearance...?
  • Raffl voting himself for most likely to win an Oscar is my new favorite thing. Although Voracek deferring to his fellow ginger is also a beautiful thing.

Oh man, I hope there's a Part 3; Ghost hasn't won anything yet.
