The Puck Stops Here

Early Playoff MVP

At least two games have been played in every first round playoff series and I am going to take this opportunity to make my first pick of the early playoff MVP.  Obviously it is extremely early in the playoffs and it is possible that the next game will significantly change my pick. 

Today, I select Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins as the early playoff MVP.  Rask has held back the Red Wings offence.  He is posting a 1.02 GAA and a .966 saves percentage.  Those are incredible numbers.  Rask has been the best goalie in the NHL all season and given that he is just entering the prime years of his career, it is possible that he could establish himself as the best goalie in the NHL for years to come.  This season may only be the start.

Your’e declaring a playoff MVP after just two games?
Why not declare Keumper the MVP?  He’s perfect so far this playoffs

Rask has held back the Red Wings offence.

Dude did you watch the Wings this year ?  That’s not much of an accomplishment.

I personally, am not being defensive, I just think that naming an MVP after 2 games is silly.
Might as well name Lucic an MVP, for re-arranging DK’s nuts.
