You have got to be kidding me!!! What has he done really? Points, sure. But really, what has he done to elevate him as the best player in the playoffs. He was injured for the first series and a non-factor for the most part. I just don't get it versus some other candidates I would consider that are mentioned in the article.

@all

Tried to edit my original post, but it's been one of the things I have never been able to do here.

Here is my addendum to my original post:

He has had some good games against Philly and Jersey. But 8 of his 18 points have come on the PP. Everyone knows he is a PP specialist. What has he done outside of that to deserve best player in the playoffs? He is a -4, 14 hits and 6 blocked shots. No short handed goals / assists.

Then you look at Brown, who singled handedly took the reigns by the horn against Vancouver. 3 critical game winning goals. 2 short handed goals along with 3 shorthanded assists. A whopping 67 hits along with 10 blocked shots.

It just baffles me. I would put Bryce Salvodor (D) ahead of the Devils for Conn Smythe as he has had just as much, if not more, impact on the Devils success than Kovy.

Yeah, me too. Yet you would astonished at how many people I have seen on various forums saying quick is a by-product of the kings d / system and not only in the Playoffs, but in the regular season.

This could possibly be the first time in the history of the award that two goalies from different championship teams won the award in consecutive years.

Neimi / Leighton, where are you now? :-)
