This award covers the pleasant surprises on Portland's roster. If you want to talk about unpleasant surprises, see the "Biggest Disappointment" post. The pleasant surprise can come in any way imaginable: most improvement, biggest contribution, you name it. As long as a player did something that made you happy, cast your vote for him!
Remember to vote only once, make your vote clear by putting the name in the subject line, and explain your reasoning and/or respond to others if you wish. Voting will be open through the weekend.
