To complement the "Five most improved" thread. I know there's been a lot of discussion about these guys, but I don't know whether we've had a "Rookie of the Year" thread. If we have, I apologize, but here goes. It's a close call between Maroney and Gostkowski. I think each exceeded expectations, especially Maroney at the beginning of the season. However, Gostkowski started solid and then finished strong, especially in the Playoffs. Maroney, for injury reasons that were kept a little vague, didn't finish as strong. So my vote is for Gostkowski, who had a lot to overcome in filling AV's shoes.
