Interesting perspective. As a Devils fan, Blake and Bourque were the guys who "impressed" me the most in the finals. I definitely remember Foote getting lots of praise for the job on Tkachuk, though.

The thing with Bourque though is the huge inspiration he was to the rest of the team. (Plus from a realistic perspective, there is no way that the media wouldn't vote him onto a postseason all-star team).
