i might put briere ahead of toews. briere was a much bigger factor in the finals and scored many big goals, including vs boston. leino plays RW. hartnell plays LW.
Thanks for the clarification on the Red Wings.

Briere had a great playoffs last year, but I don't think you can leave any Conn Smythe winner off the list. It's not like he blew Toews away in scoring either. He had one more point in one more game. If this was just for the Finals I would say go with Briere, but it's for the entire playoffs. Toews was phenomenal against Nashville when the rest of his team was not, and was also great against Vancouver and San Jose who are top level teams and probably better than anyone the Flyers faced on their way to the Finals.
