I guess we will have to agree to disagree. I saw a player at the end of last year that was always the last person back in the defensive zone (if he even made it), wasn't hustling in the offensive zone or laying it all out to make a play. I have never been a fan of Smyth's game, always thought he was one of the most overrated players in the NHL, but he always did hustle and lay it all out. He didn't do that at the end of last year for the Kings.

And if most people disagree, fine. I mean lets be honest, there was a poll on this site last year where people overwhelmingly chose Doughty over Stamkos.
