Who is the Penguins' MVP?

Posted on: February 25, 2008 3:58 pm
 

During the Pittsburgh Penguins season it has been filled with ups and downs and injuries. First Marc-Andre Fleury goes down for the Pens in December, it seemed like the season could be lost for the Pens' but Ty Conklin recalled from Wilkes/Barre-Scranton had the Pens playing their best hockey yet. Also helping lead that charge was the teams' captain Sidney Crosby. Crosby, who won the scoring title last season, was looking to repeat and he filling into his new captain role nicely leading the team and tied for the league lead with 63 points. Then came the infamous high ankle sprain and seemed once again the Pens' season was doomed. Then, after a meeting with head coach Micheal Therrien, Evgeni Malkin took this team on his back. He has the Pens winning and is on a tear by now taking over the lead league in points with 82. He went from 15th in the league in points to first since the duration of the Crosby's injury. They are all great players and have all contribued to the Pens' success, but who truly is the Pens' MVP?

Is it......

Who is the Penguins' MVP?

It HAS TO BE TY CONLKIN

Seriously, think about it

when i heard about the extent of fleury's injury, i seriously thought we could be done, I know that seems unfaithful but its just that i didn't think that conklin could carry the team, and certaintly not dany sabourin.
malkin could score three goals a game and it WOULDNT MATTER if we let up 4.
ty conklin saved our season.

Evgeni Malkin is the Pens MVP but Ty Conklin and Sergei Gonchar are close runner's up. Conklin has come out of nowhere and Gonchar has 60 points from the blueline. I'm surpised he wasn't a choice.

Not only should Geno be the MVP of the Penguins he should win the Hart Trophy as the MVP of the entire league.

I'm not even a Pens fan, but I know this should be Malkin's award.

However I want Conklin to win it.I like him more as a player.

As much as I like Evgeni Malkin and what he has done while Sid has been out, I might have to give it to Ty Conklin. He comes from playing in the minors to now leading the league in save percentage. The guy has been huge for us. Conk Block!
