Conn Smythe Favorites

by Chewbacca 28. April 2009 05:49

 6 teams have been eliminated, and the favorites for the MVP trophy are starting to taking form.  Let's look at the top 10 worthy candidates so far:

  1. Hiller - I know half the world somewhat expected the Sharks to choke, but not this early.  Hiller is the primary reason for the Ducks upset, and is the early favorite for MVP consideration
  2. Malkin - He just keeps on rolling.  He ran over the Flyers and is giving the Pens reason to believe they'll be back in the finals again this season.
  3. Luongo - .962 save percentage.  1.15 GAA.  4-0 to start the playoffs.  Let's see what happens against a tougher Blackhawks offense.
  4. Crosby - The other guy in Pittsburgh is rolling as well.  He went into Philly and quieted the goon fans with 2 big goals in game 6.
  5. Getzlaf - 8 points in 6 games, and a fight with big Joe Thornton to boot.  Getzlaf is becoming an elite superstar.  If the Ducks win another series, his reputation will soar.
  6. Staal - 4 big goals and several dominating performances against the Devils so far.  He clearly wants the Cup back.
  7. Parise - He'll need to be the man in game 7 against the Canes.  If they win, he'll rise up this list.
  8. Savard - Made the Canadiens look like chumps.  Or maybe they did that themselves.
  9. Varlamov - 2 shutouts to power the Capitals back into a game 7 showdown
  10. Ovechkin - playing good offense and good defense.  Guess he wants to be more like Malkin.
