The voting system is weighted to give the top 10 prospects sequentially more balloting points than those prospects ranked 11-50.
So, our top 10 list came from a member of the organization, we just don't know who. Bergevin? Dudley? Carriere? Timmins? Jankowski? Benning? etc. Who knows, but it came from a member of the org.
