And Toews has a Conn Symthe as well as JS Giguere, and Quick.... I surely hope you're not insinuating that Malkin is anywhere near Gretzky's level :lol:


When Geno is done he will have ALL the conn smythes.

Come on, it's not totally crazy. Geno has had more playoff points than Gretzky or Mario in every years he's played, including this one. Just facts.

If he can quit throwing blind east/west passes and especially blind east/west passes in his own zone and the neutral zone I might agree. Also if he can quit being a baby and taking stupid penalties I might agree.

Just for the record, when Geno won the Conn Smyth, he also lead the playoffs in minor penalties (18, next closest was 11) and was second in PIMs to only Ben Eager, who had 4 misconducts.

It's part of his game.

Geno Machino. Conn Smythe v 2.0

Do It !!!!

The 27 Yankees didn't complain about Ruth puking on thier shoes every now and then. They just enjoyed the home runs.

Tonight is his night.

I don't think that's a given.

Geno's minuses (the costly turnovers and the stupid hold) is worse than Sid's worst moments but throughout the series he has created more chances on equal strength. Sid's line was -3 before last night, and invisible before the 3-0 goal.

I'm really optimistic about what Geno and the second line will do.

That goes for Sid and the first too of course. If I made a bet now I'd put my money on Sid for the Conn Smythe. I guess last year goes to Geno but overall these past three years Crosby's found a new level of play and production and he is the best player in the world. I just want to point out I think Geno's created more offense so far, and the turnovers has everyone blind about how good he's been offensively. Extremely strong on the puck, could've had another goal and a number of more assists easily.

They both played extremely well last night. 9-87-12 has some real life to it. Geno definitely could have had a goal and an another assist last night. This is gonna be fun

have you actually watched the games? or are you just looking at the stats? I know his production in the offensive zone, but Crosby has just been head and shoulders above Malkin thus far.

Just after the Pens beat the Kings in game 7 of the finals...

Gary Bettman: "And the Conn Smythe Winner for the 2013 NHL PLayoffs, playing for the Stanley Cup Winning Pittsburgh Penguins, with 16 goals and 23 assists...and with 153 turnovers...Evgeni Malkin."
