Hasek may be doing well for the Wings, but I do not think that he has been the MVP for the team. I think that the clear MVP has been Lidstrom. Its really not much of a competition, he has done everything that this team has needed him to do and more. He has made for a better leader than I expected, and trust me, that is saying a lot. The Red Wings would not be the same team without him.
I wasn't knocking on Lidstrom at all, he is one of my favorite players. I think they are both the MVPs. Lidstrom has amazing leadership and is an excellent captain. While Hasek has been amazing in net as of late.
I want to define this for you guys. Hasek= good, nothing more. Lidstrom= great, nothing less. Therefore we come to the conclusion that Lidstrom's performance has been worth more to the team, and is team MVP. Hasek's performance doesn't come close to that of Lidstroms. The problem is that you guys get too used to Lidstroms amazing play, that you don't fully understand how much this team would miss him. More than that, you can't replace Lidstrom, where its easy enough to replace Hasek.
