EP Rinkside Mailbag: Calder voting, fringe teams at the deadline and shot quality in the postseason

It's been a while since we've done a mailbag on here. My esteemed colleague, the incomparable Ryan Lambert, has been holding it down every other week for us, but I'd really like to get into a habit of making this a regular thing myself.

If you've got any questions you'd like answered in future editions, you can either tweet them at me, or you can email them to (which works especially well for longer form concepts).

We've got some fun stuff to work through in this edition. Let's talk about the depth of this year's rookie class, how fringe teams should approach the upcoming trade deadline, and shot quality vs. shot quantity in the postseason.
