Conn Smythe

Who will take it? We have to go by the 2009 Pens finals, and remember that it goes to who plays best in round 4 and not the entire playoffs. That year crosby was the best playoff player, but they gave it to Malkin for his amazing performance in round 4.

So who has been the best in Round 4? Obviously Tim Thomas. But if the Bruins lose in 6 you can't give it to Tim Tom. Burrows and Lapierre have been the best Canucks in this final round. If either of them come up big iin Game 6 you could potentially give the Conn Smythe. If the Sedin's or Kesler come up huge in the next two potential games, Henrik or Kesler could potentially win. But just one game in the series won't be enough, and Boston has done a pretty good job to eliminate them this far.

Bieksa could take it too. He has been a strong player and was instrumental in the Lapierre goal last night. Luongo is pretty much out of contention for giving up 12 goals in 2 games.

All in all it's going to be a really interesting race to see who can take the Conn Smythe. My money is on Burrows
