Although some might argue the NHL is already too generous with its postseason awards, the league should make room for a new category to honor the highest-scoring defenseman every season.

Eleven awards for players will be handed out Thursday night at the NHL's annual awards ceremony, but a Bobby Orr Trophy would be a perfect tribute to the legendary defenseman who revolutionized the game with his offensive talents. (Though designing a trophy with a figure of Orr flying through the air after scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal in 1970 might present a challenge.)
