I definitely wouldn't give it to Stillman. He wasn't even the best player on his line. I respect what he did, but his performance wasn't CS worthy to me, respectfully. I have no idea what the numbers say, Brind'Amour might have only had 9 points in that playoffs, I'd still give it to him...he was terrific.
I'm not even saying he should have won it. Just surprised that anyone could totally forget/dismiss what he was doing - particularly through the first 3 rounds. Just a reminder or synopsis from the time:
Carolina's Conn Smythe Candidates (Jun. 9/06) - USA Today
Another article written after being awarded to Ward
only highlights Brindamour and Stillman - doesn't even mention Staal - as two guys that wouldn't have surprised anyone in a year when "several players could have been selected".
