Goals: 44 for Cammy, 29 for Spezza
+/-: +25 for Cammy, +15 for Spezza
PPG: 17 for Cammy, 10 for Spezza
GWG: 7 for Cammy, 4 for Spezza

IMO the goals scored is a stat that should have made the difference in favour of Cammalleri. A 15 goal difference is a huge one, also considering:

- Mike had to play with different linemates most of the season and they're not as good as Spezza's ones.
- in the Atlantic division there are 6 of the best 10 goalies in the league...it does make you wonder

When the MVP will be voted? Who do you think deserve it more?
You already know my answer.

Just my 2 cent
They are different style players. Spezza is a more of a playmaker so he's going to get more assists.

I also disagree about linemates. I think they are comparable.

Spezza: Bochenski/Hamel/Kelly
Cammy: Lehoux/Brown/Kostopoulos

We can only hope that the All-Star team (and MVP) are not picked on stats alone.
