MY 2010 Olympic final MVP - Chris Pronger. Pick yours.
Write in this thread who you thought was the final MVP and also why, otherwise you canīt write it here:
My choice is Chris Pronger. My arguments are that he shut down the entire ice in this final. USA could have scored 3-4 more goals if someone else had his minutes. He just blocked everything, pucks, bodies, along the boards, he closed down everything. Just a defensive superstar performance. He simply was the best in Team Canada when it mattered the most once again.
Edit: I am talking about final game MVP.

Nash was great out there today, but i still vote for niedermayer. Miller is a close second.
I'm far from a Nash fan, but he was amazing out there. That is the tragedy of Crosby scoring the winner. Everybody will remember Crosby getting the winner, but nobody will remember that Nash was easily the better of the two.
I don't really see how it isn't Miller. He turned a U.S. team that was probably the sixth best in this tournament talent-wise coming in and it took overtime in the gold medal game for them to be eliminated.
Not to say that Canada didn't have some great performances (Toews was probably the best forward in the tournament), but Miller had much more value to the U.S. team than any Canadian player had to Canada. That, to me, signifies MVP.
