Best (all-around) forward: Thornton
Best (all-around) defenseman: Gonchar
Most consistent forward: Thornton
Most consistent defenseman: Boynton
Most improved forward: Lapointe
Most improved defenseman: Gill
Biggest surprise (good): Razor
Biggest disappointment: Huml
Most underrated player: Gill or Rolston
Most overrated player: Murray
Team MVP: Raycroft/Thornton

Tough choice for a couple of them....Rolston gets the shaft bigtime from posters, IMHO. Plays 3rd line exclusively and is expected to be a 70 point guy even though he has no set up guy or finisher with him.

MVP? we wouldnt be where we are without Razor...but then again, without Thornton, we dont come close to the playoffs, either. By far the 2 most consistent guys we have. I think the team has proven that it can consistently win without the rest of the guys that I considered...Sammy, Bergeron, Murray.

Later

For those that asked why I said P.J axelson is overrated, here is my defense. Is he a great defensive forward? Yes. Can he kill penalties? Yes. Does it seem at times he can do no wrong in the eyes of the lunitic fringe....yes. Does Nick Boyton (who plays defense all the time) have more points then P.J?....Yes........Is Slegr who has played only 33 games nipping at P.J's awesome offensive numbers? Yes. I know Alot of people on this board like him. I just think he is over rated. Donato has had more of an impact this year to me then P.J has. These are only my opinions, so it probably not worth much. That or Stock Rocks is rubbing off on me.
