Who will win the Conn Smythe Trophy? Tue, May 13, 2008
Awarded annually to the player judged most valuable to his team during the NHL's Stanley Cup playoffs, the Conn Smythe Trophy has only ever been awarded to 36 different players since it was introduced in the 1964-65 NHL season.
Multiple winners include names like Bobby Orr, Bernie Parent, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Patrick Roy.
Players from teams that lost the Stanley Cup, have won the Conn Smythe Trophy five times. Jean-Sebastien Giguere had that dubious honour in 2003.
With many outstanding players giving it their all in the semifinal stages, there are more than a few candidates.
Who do you think will win the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2008?
