Pettersson for me, but it's a tough call.

Petey, but stick taps to Miller, Hughes, Horvat and both goalies.

Petey. Even when he's not getting points he did everything needed to win (save turning into a goalie himself) .

Is it good that I can’t pick one?

A few good choices, but I went with Petey. He was there almost every shift and found ways to make himself valuable when needed. Smartest player we've had in a very long time.

Goalies - they kept us in it.

Hughes - was a force many nights, but didn't adjust to vegas' pursuit.

Horvat - timely goals

Boeser - Not quite an MVP, but I was super impressed with his effort. Totally unexpected from a career floater.

Petey is the teams best player. He showed it again in playoffs.

He even did that. Remember the game where he blocked the shot in net with Markstrom out of position?

For the poster (or perhaps later, posters) whose chose 'other', who was your other?

I wanted to offer other options, but the poll was set up to allow only 10.

I'm not sure what you wanted him to adjust to. His only recourse would have been to draw the pursuit and find the open man. Unfortunately the Canucks never moved around away from the puck enough to create an open man. Hughes was the only defenseman who didn't just throw the puck up the boards and out of our zone 95% of the time.

The team failed because they didn't have a system in place that directed players where to go to support the puck carrier who was almost always going to get tag teamed by Vegas skaters.

Although Pettersson's playoff performance was fantastic for his first and I almost voted that way.
I voted for Hughes because of the way he battled the biggest and the best the other three teams could throw his way.
Stupendous for a first year, first playoff kid. Pretty much admitted to playing hurt a couple of outings. Amazing.
Both these young budding superstars on on the passage to elite level status in the NHL's top overall players.
Different backgrounds yet both instantaneously were successful in the best hockey league in the world.
