  • award should be linked.
  • tie isn't simple.
I disagree but have linked to wikt.
  • trophy should be linked.
  • winning their first ever Presidents' Trophy. - winning their very first Presidents' Trophy. -- If this has the same meaning, I'd prefere this variant, because it sounds better to me.
You shouldn't use terms like very when there is no reason for it. You should be concise.
Shouldn't use redundant words like "ever" either. So that's removed. The Rambling Man (talk) 09:54, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
  • introduced - should be linked (at least to wikt; ping me there is no such article, so I will create it for you)
It is a simple word and would be overlinking. You should only link major topics or complex words.
No, it's not a simple word. It doesn't appear in BE850 or BE1500 so linking to Simple Wiktionary is a good idea. The article "introduction" already exists so it's now linked there.. The Rambling Man (talk) 09:54, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Well whatever, I asked a number of people and they told me it was simple because its spelled almost the same in numerous other languages. We don't only stick to those 1500 words. But if you want to link it ok. I think its over linking personally. -DJSasso (talk) 12:49, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Before the 1985-1986 NHL season, the best team in the league during the regular season was allowed to hang a banner stating "NHL League Champions", even though all Stanley Cup winners since 1947 were technically the NHL champions. - too long.
  • respective years - should be linked.
Changed wording.
  • While only seven of all the Presidents' Trophy winners have gone on to win the Stanley Cup in their respective years, it remains the most likely position to produce the cup winner, because the Presidents' Trophy winner is guaranteed home-ice advantage in all four rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs, provided the team advances that far. - too long.
  • observed - should be linked.
Changed word to used.
 Done by splitting the sentence into two and added references.
  • However, no trophy was awarded to the team that finished with the best overall record in the entire league during this period, and no trophy at all was awarded based on the results of the regular season from the 1981-82 season through the 1984-85 season; the Wales and Campbell trophies were transferred to the playoff champions of those conferences in 1981-82. - too long.
 Done Shortened a little.
  • Reference section: Generell are just weblinks, so use the correct header. Furthermore, it looks better (and most others use it):{{reflist}}
I did use the correct header. You are supposed to seperate general links which reference the whole article from specific references which only reference a single sentence/fact.
  • Other pages section is normally before the weblinks/references sections.

Thats all, I think. Barras (talk) 20:28, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
