I thought Ovie won so why is he talking about Sid???

WTF?

Not an MVP playoff series. But keep your chin up (and out of the way) Sid, maybe next year.

Yep last night, and 'way too much of the first game was downright bo-ringual.

Oates is right, no-one had an MVP season (or a best anything season) - the most anyone played was 48 games - this hasn't been anything near a season since G~d was a boy. Unless you happen to be Swedishly Elite, that is.

That would be somewhere between a Ha and a Har Trophy for AO., and in Sid's case a Ted Li or a Ted Lin Award - depending whether spaces count, or not.

Ovie carried his team into the playoffs and derserved the MVP. Sid is the best player.

As I said before since Sid missed a quarter of the season I didn't think he should be eligible. If you look at the plus/minus of the points leaders above Sid though it gets kind of interesting. St. Louis had 60 points and was even, Stamkos had 57 points and was minus 4, Ovie had 56 points and was a plus 2. Sid on the other hand had 56 points and was a plus 26.

Again still. They can change that 'hot clicks' anytime soon.

If they used 25% of the time they spend censoring the comments on this site on actually making it functional, we'd all be better off. I'm not holding my breath waiting for that to happen.

The right guy won the MVP...i'd imagine that Tavares came in a very close 2nd.

But Ovie sucked for a quarter of the season and Crosby missed a quarter of the season. Moral of this story is sucking is better than missing
