s18 - Admirals 2007/2008 Team MVP [WB10]


Despite finishing at the bottom of the Western Conference, the Milwaukee Admirals had some bright spots and glimpses of what the future can look like in Alexander Radulov and Ryan Suter. With the conclusion of the regular season, the team handed out its MVP award at the end of the game against the Blues.

Probably no surprise that the playmaking Swede Henrik Sedin came away with that top honour. Sedin was brought in this season to add some scoring punch and he did just that, scoring 21 goals and adding a team leading 39 helpers. Sedin finished with a team leading 60 points in 61GP with the Admirals since coming over from the Lightning.

Some other notables that were very good choices for the team MVP included Jason Blake, Alexander Radulov, Chuck Kobasew and Michael Peca.

As a rookie, Radulov had a fantastic season sharing the team lead in goals scored including 5 GWG. The young Russian clearly showed his ability to finish and fans have taken to this highy skilled winger. Hopefully a lot more to come.

In terms of Michael (Mike) Peca, there is a reason this guy wears the 'C'. Mike is all in on every shift and also put up some decent numbers. The 34 year old vet had 22 goals which included 5 GWG and 24 assists for a total of 46 points and Peca played all 82 games. It has been one of his better seasons in the last 6-7 years. Perhaps a little something in that Milwaukee beer?

Veteran Jason Blake also had a pretty decent year also sharing in the team lead for goals with 23 goals and 25 assists. Another guy that has had one of his better years.

Peca and Blake really benefitted from their linemates and increased ice time.

Kobasew also recieved a nod as team MVP for having the second most points on the team with 49. Chuck pitched in in a variety of different ways whether it was on the PP, PK or at even strength. It has definetly been his best season and there is no reason to doubt anything but improvement next year. The 26 year old is coming into his own.

At the end of the day, the vote was cast by players and management, and no one will second doubt the choice. Congrats Henrik!

The fellas plan to hit the town tonight to celebrate the little wins but know they have a lot of work to do in the offseason as jobs will be on the line next season.
