We wish he was an Als fan. Although most of the choices aren't that bad....
I'd pick Reynolds over Copeland, but an argument can be made for either.
Barron Myles will get some consideration for Western D player of the year. 37 and leading the league in picks ain't too shabby. Otherwise, take your pick from Baggs, Chick or what's-his-name that replaced Wake in BC. Although getting torched against the run by Hamilton (twice), Calgary and Winnipeg (one for the ages) won't help his cause.
Tsoumpas from Calgary is a stud lineman. If he were a tackle and not a guard I'd say he's a lock. Henry's been pretty well protected and Reynolds is the league's #1 rusher - and he's the best of that group, which is good enough for me. Given how the Riders have run blocked this year, none of them are worthy of consideration, although Geno may be a sentimental choice for some.
Not a great year for Canadians in the West...Bagg's numbers aren't great, but he plays tough and has a few highlight reel catches to his credit that will score some points. I'm struggling to think of another Canadian with a larger impact that's not just a different Sask receiver.
