Don't know how to do a table but i will do it informally.
Current poll, top 60-2009, top 100-2010
Orr 1, 1, 1
Clancy 12, 13,15
Coffey 13, 12, 12
Cleghorn 15,19, 19
Seibert 16, 17,17
Actually, not a lot of change. Most rankings changed by no more than one.
Clapper drop was due to confusion relating to his Rw years. Interesting that kelly wasn't really penalized much because of his years at centre.
Lidstrom and Pronger came up because they are still active and adding to their portfolio although I do think Pronger is being over-rated. Will be interested in seeing his ranking once people have had time to digest his full career.
Oddities are Cleghorn (up 4) and Stevens (up 3). Didn't really see any persuasive arguments for either to move up so much.
Most of the variables are likely due to the make up of the panels.
Just my thoughts.
