Maple Leafs Most Valuable Person this Season (2016-2017)
« on: April 11, 2017, 10:33:45 AM »
Taking a page from the TSN Quiz that has appeared throughout various tv broadcasts of TSN SportCentre, recently the panel was asked to name the Maple Leafs "Most Valuable Person".


So now, I decided to enact a poll to showcase what the general consensus is here at TMLfans.


Go ahead, make your pick, don't be shy. 


Feel free to comment.

I had to go with Matthews and his 40 goals but Babcock has been amazing. Every time I thought that's it we're done, the team would come out and shock me. They grew and improved all season, just kept getting better and better.  Even though the Leafs were in a playoff race all year Babcock always choose development first. Playing inexperienced kids in the dying seconds of close games, allowing the kids to learn from their mistakes. We got to watch them get better in a very short time. Our trajectory is amazing, can't wait to see how far we can go!

I don't think Dubas should even be an option, I mean he's more behind the scenes but really what impact has he had?  I think Dubas option should be replaced by Andersen since most agree that Andersen + Matthews as most essential to Leafs success on ice this year.

While I agree that he shouldn't win, he was a large part of setting up the Marlies development program that produced a significant chunk of this roster, that's not for nothing.

Not to mention firing up a legit analytics department that the management team and owners group actually listens to (granted that was last-last season's work).
