Significant considerations would be the number of voters, who they were, the timing of the voting, nature of the ballot, weight of each ballot or slot on the ballot.
Right now, it's impossible to find out rule changes year by year, so may not be 100 % correct at the time Holecek was competiting:
Zlata Hokejka is oldest Czech individual award. It goes to best Czech players that season (before 1989 players in NHL were excluded)
Voters - votes are divided among 3 groups - representatives of hockey association (president, NT coach, U20 coach), coaches of league teams and representatives of sport media.
There are 3 rounds (right now it's at the end of extraliga, WC and NHL, most reasonable at Holeceks time would be half season, end of season, end of WC or just one round) and every voter chooses 10 best players at that part of season. 1st player gets 10 points, 10th 1.
Only big change I found mentioned is regarding NHL players, but there may be some undocumented changes I missed
