Well, in that graph, +3, in a relatively small group, is close to zero occurences. Way closer than zero than to one.

I mean, OBVIOUSLY, Hasek at 7th is more abnormal. Hasek 4th would have been kindof the same than Roy 4th (if that would have been the case, they would have been tied).

Still, if you take out the lowest vote for each, they'd be equals.
