Halak's Conn job

Christopher Tully, Toronto

With all the Conn Smythe talk, there seems to be one name left out: Jaroslav Halak.

Sure the Canadians didn't make it all the way, but was there any player more instrumental in their team's run.

If Halak hadn't stepped up his game, the Canadians would have been a light snack for the Caps.

Halak is truly deserving for what he did for his team this spring. It's time to break with tradition and pick a Conn Smythe winner who is probably golfing right now.
