    Crosby is seriously over-rated. Offensively, Malkin outperformed him, as did the rookie.. Defensely, everyone always does.

      Malkin had 10 goals and 18 assists for 28 points , Crosby had 8 and 19 for 7 points , Phil Kessel had 8, 15, 23, and rookie Jake Guentzel scored 13 goals, tops in the playoffs, to go with eight assists, for 21 points. Those four had the most points in the playoffs. Nashville’s leading scorer, Filip Forsberg, had nine goals and seven assist for 16 points. He was the only Predator in the top 10 in post season scoring (7th).

        Yes, but at times assists are given out like candy on Halloween. Plus, there are clutch goals, and others. Crosby just doesn’t seem that clutch to me.

          Seriously, how does the MVP end up at +4? As low-scoring and outscored as the Preds were in the finals, Forsberg was +14.

          Crosby’s numbers this time were actually better than last year when he also won the Conn Smythe, he had six goals, 13 assists, and was -2. Seems reputation may factor in the voting. Crosby’s best numbers in the playoffs were in ’08-’09, when he had 15 goals, 16 assists, and was +9. Malkin won the Conn Smythe that time with 14, 22, and +3. Then there was Wayne Gretzky, who had 17 goals, 30 assists, and +28 in the 1984-85 playoffs. Of course, Gretzky was Not of This Earth.
