The outcome of the final game is irrelevant to the Smythe. It's not an award given to the best player on the winning team. There is no need for multiple votes or conditional outcomes.

Five times already the Smythe has been given to a member of the losing team. If it happened again, it would just be time #6. No big deal, no uproar.
