Your Sunday Conn Smythe Candidate Round Up

Far be it from me to be able to tell you a whole lot about who does and who doesn't do their job well. I figure that it's probably just best if I leave that kind of judgment to the people who, you know, get paid for talking about these sorts of things. So, I've searched the internets far and wide to bring you various opinions on who the leading candidates for the Conn Smythe Trophy are.
