Right. Wrong. Wrong.
In 1990, Sergei Makarov of the Calgary Flames became the oldest player, at age 31, to win the trophy, even though he had played for HC CSKA Moscow (the "Red Army" team) in the Soviet Union. After that season, the rules for awarding the Calder were amended so that players could only be eligible if they were under 26 years old by September 15 of their rookie season.

I knew he was in his thirties, did not look it up, so thanks for correcting me.

Yeah, leaf fans don't count anything but Stanley Cups.......... Divisional or Conference titles mean nothing I guess, when you don't win so few........... or a President Trophy either.

You also said the NHL was ok with a 30yr old winning the calder.
Rule change suggests otherwise.

I'll take the runner up medal over being the fat kid who tripped over his feet at the start line and finished so far behind everyone else that most people didn't see him finish........that's what the Leafs have been for 5 decades.

But there's no one alive to recount the glory days of the Sens though. I've seen footage of the Leafs hoisting the cup. The Sens? Not so much.

The fat kid got fat cos he was bored of winning.

Yeah. That's pretty depressing when you can never beat a team as poop as the Laffs in the playoffs.

That really has to suck.

They were okay with it until he won it. The NHL thought they had a monopoly on pro hockey in north America, but that was shattered when the WHA opened up for business......... and that resentment was transferred onto the players who dared to play in this new upstart pro league.

like I've said many times, leafs fans only acknowledge Cup wins as a sign of success in the NHL ............. but they keep bringing up these preliminary round series wins vs their provincial rivals as if they're some sort of great accomplishments, and in their minds, better than winning a Conference Championship, and advancing to the Stanley Cup finals.

So keep on hanging onto those preliminary round victories, as they are right up there with Cup wins from over (almost) 50 years ago or longer.
