2. Corey Crawford wins his first Vezina Trophy

Corey Crawford knows what it takes to be an elite goaltender in the NHL and he has proved that he is capable of playing at an elite level. The biggest challenge for him this year would be playing at an elite level consistently through the entire season and into the playoffs. Being able to produce game after game when being called upon is what Crawford will need to focus on. There were  times when Crawford under-performed, letting goals he normally would save go through the glove or the 5 hole. I predict he works on those minor flaws and proves that he is an elite goaltender winning his first Vezina Trophy behind a solid Blackhawks team.
