2021-2022 HAB MVP


Recommended Posts

So, I know this may be a short topic, but what are your thoughts?  Do we even have one? Yes.  Every team, no matter how bad, has somebody that could be considered an MVP. My vote, and I'm sure there will be detractors, (but it's a personal choice of who you think is MVP this season, and not who you believe it should be based on potential.) Ben Chiarot!  I know, kinda outside the box, but he's always played over his head here in Montreal, and I believe that he has improved over the years. Big, burly, shut down, in your face type of defenseman that can play both sides if necessary and can give you a little bit of offence. Should bring a major haul at the deadline, if they don't wait tooooo long, as more and more teams are becoming Sellers. My runner-up, and again I may get detractors, is Artturi Lehkonen. This guy is the model of consistency, and gives 110% every game. Benching him for not scoring is a disservice to his work ethic, that has never wavered. In a perfect world, I keep both of them. I only trade either/or, or both, if I get a first round pick for each of them. Or, a top prospect. Anything less, and I keep them. Although, if I can't sign BC, then I trade him, but it has to happen very soon. So there you have it Habbers, my choices.  What say you?

I don't mind keeping Chiarot or having him as a choice for MVP. My MVP choice for this season though is Drouin, he has actually been one of the better Habs over the course of the entire season so far.

J. Drouin has played better, I'll agree with that.

There's no real MVP this year. We can debate who our best player has been and maybe that's Suzuki or Drouin or Chiarot or Allen or even Romanov or Anderson. But an MVP in terms of value typically refers to the guy who is keeping the team going and who the team is relying on for success. Well this year, not one guy has been that valuable. No one guy was able to keep the team going. With 8 wins in half a season, not really much positive in terms of who has been the catalyst for success...

Jacques Beauchamp trophy?
 
 
The trophy is awarded annually to a member of the Montreal Canadiens "who played a dominant role during the regular season, without earning any particular honor" as voted on by media members.

Man thats a sobering stat.  We're seriously on pace for like 17 wins.  That's like historically bad.  Unless something changes this will easily be our worst statistical season since teams started playing 70+ games.  We're not quire early 90s sens or sharks but its not that far off either.

Barring a late surge by someone i think Drouin probably is the frontrunner for that award this year.

The good news for the Habs players is that they're all eligible this year. Not a single one is earning any other particular honor.

I’d pop Chiarot for the trade value and the fairness that he deserves a chance to playing with another winning team vs losing him for nothing or resigning him as a UFA

Long way to go but an MVP is extremely hard on this team - there hasn’t been any difference maker - Drouin or Anderson by default

Montreal Gazette columnist Stu Cowan, CBC Daybreak Montreal’s Jessica Rusnak and former Canadiens defenceman and NHL assistant coach Rick Green — along with host Julian McKenzie talk about the Habs’ MVP to date. We'll, these guys took the easy way out,  and picked Slick Nick Suzuki. Don't get me wrong,  I really like Nick, but he is playing about as well as he should be. With this team, at this time, because of the situation we've been in, I don't think he brings anything extra,  yet. I still think, all things considering,  Big Ben is playing above and beyond his expected abilities.  That's why I chose him. That definitely helps our potential return in a trade. He is a prototypical defenseman built for the playoffs. He will command a big return and the acquiring team will not be disappointed.

Agree. if anything, Suzuki is playing worse than expected. I dont blame him, the team has imploded aroudn him & some nights he's been play with 3rd or 4th liners and no relief/support against the other team's top lines.   Chiarot on the other hand has been better than his entire tenure here. He's outplayed every other dman (including Petry) and while I still wouldnt keep him (because of his age) its the first time ive been sad at the prospect of seeing him go.  Last year i would have happily seen him gone just to get someone else in the top 4.

Agreed. In a perfect world,  we keep Big Ben, unfortunately...............

No, but he's the only one living up to his potential. :lol:

Don't forget the cleaners who clear the ice during stoppages! They show up every night, don't complain and do a heck of a job. Hard to pick just one out of the bunch though.
