17th: Jeff Zatkoff 28.57% (runner up: Dwight King 17.14%)
18th: Andy Andreoff 50% (runner up: Dwight King 14.29%)
19th: Dwight King 29.17% (runner up: Michael Schumacher 20.83%)
20th: Michael Schumacher 36.67% (runner up: Andrew Campbell and Jean-Francois Berube 13.33%)

And this is last year (can be found here as well: )

1. Bernier- 87.21%
2. Schenn- 86.36%
3. Hickey- 62.22%
4. Forbort- 36.36%
5. Vyacheslav Voynov- 35.96%
6. Loktionov- 63.16%
7. Clifford- 56.47%
8. Teubert- 34.38%
9. Deslauriers- 29.35%
10. Kozun- 32.47%
11. Toffoli- 28.21%
12. Jones- 29.41%
13. Muzzin- 37.35%
14. Zatkoff- 50.85%
15. Lewis- 31.25%
16. Weal- 28.57%
17. Martinez- 34.48%
18. Holloway- 29.63%
19. Czarnik- 39.58%
20. Maxim Kitsyn- 50%

A few guys graduated, like Clifford, while I elected to consider Moller a prospect this year even though that didn't coincide with HF's standards, and others, like Teubert and Schenn were dealt. For the guys on both lists, some big risers and fallers though. Kitsyn jumped from 20th to 9th and Toffoli went from 11th to 3rd.

The thing I found the most interesting about the list the fans did last year is guys like Clifford (7th), Muzzin (13th), Lewis (15th) and Martinez (17th). All either started the season with the team or played the majority of the season with the team, yet we didn't feel they were worthy of top rankings. In Martinez's case, he almost didn''t get ranked.

What are your thoughts?
