Who is leading the race for the Conn Smyth so far?

Scott Burnside at ESPN raises an interesting debate on who is the Playoffs MVP so far.
So, what do you think? Is it Hasek? Pronger? Alfredsson? Drury?

I am going to go with Daniel Alfredsson at this point. He has 6 goals and 5 assists in 10 games so far. He also has 3 power play goals and 2 game winners. Alfredsson has answered his critics and is playing probably the best playoff hockey of his career. Normally I hate the guy, but even I can admire what he is accomplishing this post season.

Love the ol' Instigator Cartoon from a few years back. This time around, Alfie's head is a cue ball.

Hard to pick out a single player on the Wings, although Datsyuk has had a strong post-season. The only games the Flames were able to win was when they shut him down.

When all is said and done, don't be surprised if Miller wins it.

Perhaps Big Bert will show up the next two rounds and bring home the Conn. :-)

Off Topic: Penelope Cruz is dead to me.

Penelope! nooooo!

Back on topic: I say alfredsson, he's really elevated his game. And I hate the goddamn sens! :)

What's so bad about Lenny? He's a cool cat!

Well what about Scarlett Johansson and Justin Timberlake a few weeks back? haha I can't believe I'm even talking about this shit.

James, it's amazing how passive I've become towards the Sens. To even say that Alfredsson is potentially a Conn Smyth candidate
should be like heresy.
I guess I've forgiven the bastard for boarding Tucker and then scoring the winning goal in the playoffs a few years back.

Zanny - You need a new header; it's disingenuous to have "waiting for stanley" over two western captains who raised the cup already, multiple times in fact. And it's THAT very greed which will do in the west this year when then Sens stomp them. :)

Temujin - agreed, but she's been dead for years since that tom cruise experiment. However there's still time to save Elisha Cuthbert before Avery destroys her soul.

Mike: haha! Oh yeah, smartass? Well, Waiting for Stanley was originally coined in reference to Canucks and Leafs fans who have been waiting a little too long for the Holy Grail of Hockey! :)

Oh I know why you have the name and I like it...I am just pointing out perhaps you need to left justify the header. For a little bit ;)

Aligning the text to the left, so it's over Alfie and Briere

But don't listen to me. I'm hanging on to reality by a thread so who says I know anything??!
