#1997340 Toews: Most undeserving Conn Smyth winner in history?

Posted by Donaldjr2448 on 10 June 2010 - 12:35 AM

Nah! Most Undeserving?! I think he deserved it, sure he didn't put up huge numbers in the Finals, but the Conn Smythe goes to the best player in the playoffs and there was no one better than Toews. The kid was awesome in the faceoff dot and that stat alone is the most underrated stat in the game. I personally thought that if Toews didn't get the award that maybe Leino would get it!

I think the Conn Smythe is usually pretty spot on when it comes to selecting the winners. Malkin totally deserved it last year, he kicked our butts!

Great Year Boys! Like so many have said, I didn't see this team even making the playoffs this year and then all of a sudden we end up 5th! We had something like 365 man games missed due to injury and I think with that being said we pushed a very good Sharks team to 5 games, I thought we deserved a better fate in the playoffs, but thats the way it goes.

Hats off to Jimmy Howard and Brad Stuart, I personally thought those two were the team MVP's for the season.

Kind of think that the deep playoff runs in the last 3 years and then the trip to Sweden wore this team out and this maybe the best thing to happen, get an early break and recharge for next year!!

I think with the bad officiating and injuries, this team will be hungry and refocused for next year, Watch out NHL, the Wings will be back next year!
