I have to nitpick this one. This doesn't really show how "people viewed him" because what really happened was that 15 of 120+ voters named him on their ballots. We really don't know what the other 100+ voters thought. Maybe they saw him as average, maybe they'd have named him if the ballot was 8 names long. We don't know. Hart voting means a lot for the top guys, but exponentially less as we go down the list, and is a weak indicator of greatness or value when such a small percentage of the ballots is involved.
