Last week we took at look at the early favorites to win the Conn Smythe Trophy this year.
We are now nearly at the halfway mark of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and five teams remain in contention to win the most famous trophy in North American professional sports.
Here is an updated look at the top contenders to win the award. Remember that for now, I am restricting this list to only one player per team (I will mention other players who are also in contention). The restriction will be eliminated when we know the two teams who will be playing in the finals. Also keep in mind that for now, the top contenders are presented in no particular order.
