GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

How is Datsyuk the MVP? He played great but Zet or Howard would be clearly the MVPs.... Game 6 and 7 were elimination games and they both pulled through for that, that's how you earn MVP status by showing up on big games.



MVP: Howard

Clutch: Zetterberg

Best defenseman: No one, the defense was terrible and I'm not going to award it to the "least worst" one either

Best Rookie: Nyquist

Most consistent player: Datsyuk

Most unsung hero: Abdelkader

Dats scored in game 6, and he completely shut dosn Getzlaf in game 7. Dats is the best player on the team easily.

Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

Dats is for sure the best player on the team. I can't really take anyone seriously that says otherwise. That said, this is about this series. I didn't watch enough of it to really com.ent but from what I did Jimmy was carrying the team. I know Z was all clutch the last couple games too..

Datstyuk is the best player on the team but that doesn't make him MVP of this series. That's not how it works. You're best player doesn't always have to be your most valuable player. You're most valuable player is the one that helped to get where you are. An OT game winner to avoid elimination (Zetterberg) and preventing other team from scoring in your net (howard) is more valuable than shutting down one star player (datsyuk on getzlaf).

 

Franzen had 3 goals, one more than datsyuk, that doesn't make him MVP. What you do when you face elimination is what makes you an MVP. 

 

Pasha played an amazing series, as the league themselves including NHL.com have put it Jimmy gets the MVP for the wings first round and Z proved himself to be a good captain and was clutch.

This wasn't a championship series so no one takes lessons from anyone. And defense for the red wings this round was terrible so by the logic wings aren't eligible to win any championship.

My opinion is so much better than your opinion! While I agree with you that Z was our MVP, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and It's not like Datsyuk wasn't one of our best players.

Anyway...
MVP: Zetterberg
Best surprise: Cleary
Most clutch: nyquist (both of his points came in OT)
Best beard: Zetterberg
Best neck beard: Howard

Most courageous when separated from bertuzzi by 2 panes of glass: getzlaf
Best logo hunter: Perry
Most overrated: selanne

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Datsyuk's strong 2 way play, face offs, and ability to bring us back from the dead when noone else can are the most important things to our team. If he doesnt roof that 35' wrister top shelf to tie it 2 - 2, we lose in 5 games. No OT glory for Nyquist or Brunner. No game 6 herpics from Z. No back-stopping magnoficence from Howard. Dats is our MOST VALUABLE PLAYER. Period. Doesnt matter when.

Jimmy carried us this series. yes others played well, but in the end we won because our G was better than the Ducks G. Kudos to Kronwall and E for playing most of their shifts vs the Perry/getzlof line and holding them down.
