NHL Playoffs: Odds to Win the Conn Smythe Trophy

Conn Smythe Trophy Odds

The Stanley Cup is widely considered the toughest trophy to win in all of sports, but the Conn Smythe Trophy awarded to the NHL playoffs MVP is the highest form of individual hardware a player can earn. When it comes to odds on which man will win the 2019 Conn Smythe Trophy, Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask is the overwhelming favorite.

Rask is the -120 front-runner to garner the hardware at Bovada, with Jaden Schwartz (+325), Jordan Binnington (+350), Brad Marchand (+700), Patrice Bergeron (+1800), David Pastrnak (+2000), Vladimir Tarasenko (+2000), Alex Pietrangelo (+2500), Charlie Coyle (+3000) and David Krejci (+3000) rounding out the top 10.

Is it Tuukka Time?

Rask has put the Bruins on his back in numerous games so far through three rounds, and his 12-5 SU record, 1.84 goals-against average and .942 save percentage have B’s fans reminiscing about Tim Thomas’ improbable run to the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.

Rask, who’s been the subject of scrutiny among Boston media and fans alike for not living up to his pricey contract, has put those concerns to bed in the Bruins’ run to the Cup. Los Angeles’ Jonathan Quick was the last goaltender to win the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2012, yet Rask could easily buck that trend this time around.

Don’t forget about O’Reilly

I’m a little surprised to see Blues center Ryan O’Reilly all the way down the list at +4000. O’Reilly ranks second on the Blues in postseason scoring with three goals and 11 assists, but he’s been far and away the best forward on the Blues since the start of the regular season. The Conn Smythe Trophy doesn’t factor in regular-season success, but if O’Reilly can continue to excel in the Cup Final, I can see him getting the nod.

Blues rookie netminder Jordan Binnington’s run from minor-league afterthought to superstardom has been nothing short of amazing, and simply put, St. Louis likely wouldn’t have even made the playoffs without him. The Blues were the worst team in the NHL on January 3 and took off when head coach Craig Berube handed the reins of the starting goaltender job to Binnington.

His stats aren’t as eye-popping as Rask’s (12-7, 2.37 GAA, .914 SV%) but he’s been rock-solid for the Blues when they’ve needed him the most. Even at +350, I think he’s a little undervalued.
