I disagree..Malkin is only one point behind Briere and he has played 4 games less than him. Briere's Points per game is 1.27 while Malkin's is 1.88. His stats are just better overall.


Plus the flyers aren't going to be in the finals

Malkin is unreal, but he's playing with better talent.

Briere is doing it all by himself on the powerplay. The dude is just flying and always seems to be putting it in.

Briere has been the most valuable player to his team so far, IMO.

Malkin is the shit though. I love me some down syndromed YEVVVVGENI!

The Flyers had like the second best power play in the regular season, he's not doing anything by himself. Flyers have a bunch of spark in their offense and Briere is one of the best, doesn't mean he's doing it by himself because he's not.

And besides, he's not doing anything that Malkin isn't doing. Malkin is all over the ice as well, his two goals in game 3 was just masterful, dude has one of the best slap shots in the NHL.

Briere is playing with Prospal, Carter and Umberger.

Malkin is playing with Crosby, Hossa, Gonchar, and Stall.

You get my point?

Kovalchuk and Ovechkin have the best shots in hockey. Malkin would probably fit nicely behind them.

Crosby/Hossa and Malkin aren't even on the same line, and I don't think Malkin and Staal even see each other on the ice aside from some penalty killing. And like I said, the Flyers have one of the best power plays out there, it's not just one guy and it's not just one guy here. And besides, Carter is a scoring machine, Prospal is good as well, and Umberger is the same guy that had 2 goals tonight, plus he's a beast, I've seen enough of the dude. So no, I don't get your point. The amount of talent you have on your team shouldn't take anything away from one individual. Malkin is just on a tear and dominating the playoffs, and he's done it in less games.

And yeah, I said he has one of the best, not the best. And he doesn't use an illegal stick.

Haha, settle down champ. I forgot I wasn't entitled to my opinion.

Briere plays on the PP with Carter and Prospal. I think Malkin mans the point with Gonchar and has Crosby, Hossa and Sykora on the PP. If you even bother comparing Jeff Carter (a guy they wanted to get rid of at the deadline) and Vinny Prospal (a leftover from Tampa Bay) to Sidney Crosby (top 3 players playing today), Hossa (among the top 10 players today) then this argument is pointless.

I'm not saying Briere is doing it all by himself, but IMO Philly wouldn't even be out of the first round with him and the Penguins wouldn't be as good with out Malkin but they probably would've made it to the 2nd round.

This is a big thing for me. I like to go by points per game. Briere has had FOUR more games than Malkin.

I know the trophy is for MVP of the playoffs. But the Pens wouldn't be in the playoffs if Malkin didn't step up when Sid was out with his ankle sprain.

I'm just saying dude, don't go off saying Malkin plays with all these different guys when he's not on the same line as any of them. It's not opinionated so you're not entitled to your opinion, that's just the facts.

And again, like I said, the amount of talent you have on your team shouldnt take away a single individuals accomplishments. Unless Briere is playing with complete scrubs then it's debatable, but he doesn't..and neither does Malkin. And Malkin has done what Briere has done..except in few games, why? Because Malkin has dominated.

And you wouldn't know what Phili would do without Briere....most people thought the Pens would struggle with Sid out and Malkin carried the team from there. Now, he's dominating the playoffs. Phili/Montreal is going to a game 5, while the Pens/Rags will most likely end tomorrow, thus making Briere having even more games over Malkin. Pure dominance.
