If the US wins, has to be Gibson. This guy is unbelievable.

The tournament MVP by no means has to be from the winning team. This is not the Stanley Cup. In fact the award will be decided before the end of the final game when the tournament winner may still be very much up in the air.

Having said that, I think John Gibson is now probably the front runner with RNH close behind.

I think Gaudreau has a decent chance, sure he started slow but as the games got more important he really started to produce and despite being pointless in his 1st three games he has a chance at leading the tournament in scoring.

Gibson seems like the obvious choice to me. As a Flames fan I would be happier however with Gaudreau continuing to add to his stats against Sweden and then winning the MVP just so he can add that accomplishment/award to his increasingly impressive resume of recognitions.

Gibson is definitely the frontrunner. Even if he has a good game and the US loses, I think there still could be a shot that he gets it as I don't think someone from Sweden has really differentiated themselves from the pack yet. Probably pretty rare, but he has been exceptional.

Yeah but subtract his goals and what are scores for that game? I mean you could be right. Maybe whoever is on the selection committee will look at it like his scoring explosion was instrumental in giving the whole team confidence. But if they look at who was impactful for the whole tournament from start to finish I'd say he's behind Trouba and Gibson.

Not trying to undermine what he's done though. He didn't look terrific in his first few games but he's helped the team a lot lately. It really is a relief.

Yeah RNH came to my mind before anyone from Sweden. I would just think that if it was anyone it would be from a team in the gold medal game. I guess I made the thread in the interest of seeing who everyone thought it could be from Sweden (and the USA obviously)

It has to be Gibson in my eyes. He's just unstoppable. The US is a ton more vulnerable with anybody else in net.

Since it could be anyone in the tournament, if Nuge has a great game against Russia my homer vote is for him. But otherwise Trouba or Gibson.

Gibson is just a wall, he's got my vote. It doesn't matter how many points Gaudreau or Trouba rack up because Team USA doesn't need those points with Gibson in the net.

Gotta be John Gibson if USA wins. Maybe if they lose too I'm not sure what Sweden has as their last game was the first time I watched them.

Just did some research in an effort to get some answers to the questions people have posed. The tournament MVP award is actually a pretty recent addition. The furthest back I could find one for is 2004 when it was Parise. Prior to that they just did the directorate awards for top forward, dman, and goalie. It looks like the winner did come from the gold medal game on every occasion although not necessarily the winning team.

When John Gibson stared down Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the third period and made a point blank save that's when he solidified it. That's the best 19 year old hockey player in the world with NHL experience having a tremendous tournament and you make a huge stop at that point in the game. That's what being a Goaltender is all about. He's really anchored the US defensively and been great all tournament. Expect a big performance out of him versus the Swedes.

I can only find records since 2002, and in all of these cases the MVP has gotten a gold or silver medal:

WJC MVP Finish
2002 Mike Cammalleri Second
2003 Marc-André Fleury Second
2004 Zach Parise First
2005 Patrice Bergeron First
2006 Evgeni Malkin Second
2007 Carey Price First
2008 Steve Mason First
2009 John Tavares First
2010 Jordan Eberle Second
2011 Brayden Schenn Second
2012 Evgeni Kuznetsov Second

Ryan Murphy, Steve Spott pays the IIHF.

In all seriousness, John Gibson.
