Posts seem to be pointing in the direction of "Best Player" as opposed to "Most Valuable" or "Most Popular".Although no one has stepped forward to clarify if international games were part of the mix and if it was a closed ballot. It seems that people simply do not know.

This brings us to another issue. As posted previously in the table by Shirtless Joe is seems that Kharlamov ranks approximately fifth in the MVP or "Best Player" voting. On the other hand there seems to be a view that the Soviet hockey fans consider Kharlamov to be the "Best Player" by far.

If this view is correct then there must be evidence of the Soviet hockey fans strongly protesting the voting yet there does not seem to be any evidence of such protests. Could someone provide evidence of such protests?
