    Who deserves the Smythe if the Caps win?

    I go with unpopular choice. Kuz gets it over Ovi, so far.

    Ovi has been GREAT, but Kuz has been just WOW. He's had a huge impact on so many goals and scoring chances. Beautiful hockey throughout the playoffs. He's statuesque, yet moves so gracefully (if you know what I mean), while creating all kinds of chances. He's been unstoppable.

    This may be another reason they win the Cup. There are two superstars playing a complete game now. Add their depth (rested unlike Winnipeg after a war with the Preds) and experience (again unlike Winnipeg) and bam! The clock strikes midnight and the guys who spent years working up to this moment finally deliver.

    Kuznetsov has a slight edge in points, but Ovechkin has set the tone with his scoring/physical play/shot blocks, so Ovechkin is still the MVP for me. 1A and 1B for me, whichever way you go.

    Agree fletch, it's a tough call. Kuznetsov has been lights out, and his scoring speaks for itself. Ovi has been the leader though. He's set the tone, is second in the playoff for hits and is putting his body on the line every shift. And clearly the team feed off him.

    I think Ovi will get it based on sentimental value, and it won't be a bad choice. Unless Kuznetsov puts up another 3 or 4 point game to decide it in game 5 and force their hands.

    Ovi's physical play and his emotional effort/leadership has been stellar. He is their leader and has delivered in that role. So hats off to Ovi, if they win. He should be the first to carry the Cup.

    Yet, for MVP, Kuz has been such an integral part of so much of the Caps scoring including tons of important goals. He's been involved in about 40% of all their goals, over 23 games, accumulating 31 points. When you look at many of the goals and examine who made the key play or the difficult play, Kuz is the man. Every time he rushes the puck (hell every time it's on his stick) you can't turn away from the screen because he is going to create something. And he's not just making plays but finishing, including 2 GWG and an OTG. He also leads all players on all teams in +/-.

    Most importantly, he is a consistent threat to create the most dangerous chances. He keeps the opposition on defense with his possession game and is beating defenders, even when they are positioned well. He has often been the reason Ovi ends up being open. Without Kuz, Caps probably don't beat Columbus and certainly don't get past the Pens.

    Sure, he's the sentimental hollywood choice. He's been great. But who's been greater, who would you give it to?

    agreed. Ovi doesn't create much, he finishes what others created IMO

    I would still give it to Ovechkin, I think there's much more focus on him.
