Thats a tough question.
If London wins- Ive seen every home game live and all aways on the tube
The entire team has contributed and there have been many play the hero role.
Having said that Houser has been great in the finals (so far) Matta has really stepped up all POs and Watson has done everything you could ask.
MArk Hunter and staff may have been the most pivotal group in this run for the Knights.
If Niagara- I only saw 1 Ott game and all vs the Knights. Id have to GUESS Doug Hamilton as hes been the one Dog leading the way vs London

Matta would be mine. Hes been dynamite all POs far and away leading rooks in scoring, provided the Knights with great D zone coverage, moves the puck up to Fs real well, adding scoring from the back end that was absent most of the year, wins the puck one on one. Very consistent PO run

I think "Doogie" Houser gets it thou- has been stellar so far in the finals. Wasnt needed to be the deciding factor in the first 3 series but played well.

Maatta would be solid selection but I also think with him playing around Tinordi/ Harrington makes his job easier. Houser has been solid also but again the Tinordi/ Harrington thing pops up for me. Those two are like sponges back there swallowing up forwards/ dump ins and cycles....any of those 3 defenders are great picks and Houser too.................but Austin Watson is a whole different guy.

Watson, Maatta, Houser top the list and not sure which way the votes would go.

But I find is very hard to look past what Watson has meant to this team and playoffs.

Very hard decision

The whole team has been so solid that it makes it tough. Maatta has been great. Watson has been fantastic. Houser has been tremendous. I think it would have to be one of those players. If I had to put money on who would get it, I would have to say Houser. He won MVP and is still playing at that high level, I think he will do the sweep of MVP awards.

My vote for MVP for the knights is Visentin. He fell apart towards the end of this series.

The voters looked at this the same way I did....Watson was just too important in every facet of his game in these playoffs to be overlooked. Yes the Maatta's, Houser's and other had outstanding performances but like I suggested Watson was a little more important in his roles. Does Maatta put up those numbers if he isn't playing behind Tinordi, Harrington ? Doubt it.....but he is sure looking good.

Off to the Memorial Cup in Shawinigan next weekend...can't wait.

Congratulations Knights fans! Enjoy!!

Very glad to see Watson named playoff MVP -- he would have gotten my vote too. He was amazing.

I expected this to be a much closer series, but London was dominant throughout.
