2010 Post-season awards - Minnesota Wild version

After yesterday's NHL awards, there was a bit of discussion pertaining to the impact Tim Thomas and Pekka Rinne had on their respective teams, as well as the true meaning of the Hart award. Well, I'm guessing today's award ceremony will have much less controversy, because honestly, with such a disappointing season most of the awards were unanimous.

So, here we are folks, the post-season awards for the Minnesota Wild.
