Where does Jonathan Toews rank?
Which players will make the strongest cases to bolster their Conn Smythe candidacies when the Flyers and Blackhawks meet for the Stanley Cup?
Awarded to the most valuable player of the entire NHL postseason, the Conn Smythe isn't guaranteed to go to one of the players who hoists the Stanley Cup (Flyers goalie Ron Hextall won it from the losing side in 1987). But it doesn't hurt your case, if only because it's hard to win the Cup while playing poorly.
The Blackhawks and Flyers have plenty of players logging quality minutes right now, but who will prove the biggest keys to victory during the finals? Consider some of the top candidates below and rank away!
