I'm personally more surprised that Collberg is getting that many votes over Gallagher, Ellis and Kristo. And I thought the vote would be a lot more spread around.

If I was making a list of my own, spot 4 to 9 would be really tough to figure out. Between the guys above and Leblanc, I'd have a really hard time figuring out the proper order.

Also, I doubt it's hatred (harsh term) here. Kristo was drafted in 2008, been in the system 4 years, and most people (myself included) have seen very little of him. If Collberg is getting votes because of the "new toy" effect, Kristo is suffering from the opposite: the shine is wearing off in his case.

It doesn't make him any less of a good prospect. It's just perceptions.

EDIT: Also, thank you WTK for running those. They're always an interesting and fun activity.
