In the playoffs he was second (by 1 point) in scoring with 12 and second (by 1 goal) in goal scoring with 6. He wasn't dominant in the playoffs but calling him a passenger is incorrect IMO. Giguere kept them in the games and deserved his award, but Kariya wasn't just sitting back letting the other forwards do all the work. Unless you're saying Selanne was a passenger to Getzlaf in '07, because the numbers as pretty similar.
