And before that it was Zetterberg in 07-08... again, sort of a 1C. In 06-07, the Pizza line all tied for the lead on the cup loser. And 05-06 was Eric Staal, 1C on the cup winner.
So it holds true, for the most part.
Kopitar, Toews, Malkin, Zetterberg. #1C on winning teams, sure, but I'd argue that one of the huge reasons they led the playoffs in scoring was because they are special players too. Why does Krejci not get that consideration?
