Conn Smythe: Brayden Point


That would be fun seeing the final go to 7 because it almost never does. That 2nd round seems like it would be really exciting too with 3 game 7s and a 6 game series. How would Point win the Conn Smythe over Stamkos, Kucherov, Hedman and even Vasilevskiy?

Who are you going to try and shut down first, Stamkos and Kuch? Or Point and his line?

Okay, but if Point has a better playoff run than any of them it's possible he wins the Conn Smythe.

JFC stop making everything so freaking difficult.

It’s pretty simple. How does Justin Williams win the Conn Smythe in 2014 over Kopitar, Doughty, Quick, etc.?

I guess the Jets bring the cup back to Canada and ALSO become the rare Presidents Trophy winning team to also win the cup the same year.

I'm sure he'll be back for next season. My question is, who does Panarin win the Hart trophy with? CBJ?
