The guy piles up secondary assists on his way to the finals, mails it in on the biggest stage and is awarded the Conn Smythe? I think, more than anything, this speaks to Chicago's depth. Personally, I think Niemi was more valuable to his team throughout the playoffs but it could have also gone to Duncan Keith or Patrick Kane as well. Yzerman look out, Johnny Toews is about to steal your legacy. :thumbdown:

Evgeni Malkin stole it from the officiating crew last year.

Gigure was a product of his pads and his defense in 06-07.

I always thought Sakic and Forsberg did more than Roy in 01.

I like him, and he was great against Vancouver, but yes. Easily the most undeserving. 3 assists and -5 in the Finals, please. Should've been Duncan Teeth, he was their best player IMO.

So, you bash Toews for "mailing it in" in the Finals while meanwhile, Niemi was absolute GARBAGE in the finals with a 4+ GAA and a SV% under .900? Curious.

Toews was the heart and soul of that team and he deserved the Conn Smythe.

Niemi actually stole Game 2 for the Blackhawks. Toews did nothing in the series whatsoever. Niemi>Toews.

As long as Kane did not win it, I don't care who got the Conn Smyth.

What kind of sucks is that Hawks fans will see this crap and use this to further stereotype Wings fans.

Byfuglien was better than Toews during the entire run.

Didn't Niedermayer win it in 07? You're thinking of '03 and he thoroughly deserved it then. Big pads or not.

On-topic: this thread is a joke.

Toews winning the Conn Smythe is better than Kane winning it in my books, besides I believe he deserved it.

Yep, Wings fans are going to have to be very careful - the Blackhawks are officially better than us now. We'd better suck it up and act like a man about it (except for the women) instead of being whiny petulant children.

I haven't seen enough of the playoffs to make a judgement on this one, but I do know this thread only makes us look bad.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
