Fedorov was more important in the first two playoff runs than either Yzerman or Lidstrom, and he deserved the Conn Smythe in 1997.

Fedorov was definitely better than Yzerman in 1997. Detroit's best offensive and defensive forward easily. Yzerman was better in 1998, when he actually did win the trophy.
