Mid-Season Maple League MVP Candidates

The Maple League is at the halfway point and a few players have set themselves apart this season. This is my list of MVP Candidates as if the season ended after the 7th week of play and does not predict into the future of the season.

    Darion Hall was a stud! My guess for MVP is Connette. What about Rookie of the year? Would be fun if you guys made a Maple League 2000s All Decade Team.
