It's well-documented that the only reason Messier won over Bourque was that several Edmonton writers intentionally left Bourque off their ballots because they felt it would be a close race and they didn't want to help Bourque at all. They were close for sure, but Bourque won that Hart if not for some extremely unethical voting practices by some homer writers.
