I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you never actually watched that Cup run. The idea that Malkin "carried" Crosby to the Finals is beyond crazy. The amount of revisionist history that has sprung up, from all the Crosby-haters, is so off-base. The guy posted 31 points, played in every situation, killed penalties, took hundreds of draws (350 more than Malkin), played against the other team's best defensive match-ups, and took the team on his back in the first two series. If he had won the Conn Smythe, only Crosby's most vehement detractors would have called "foul".

I highly doubt it. Jagr, sure. Forsberg? No.
