A lot of people here think he's a good player that is simply overrated right now on this board. But even if I disagree, he was voted, so he deserves to be #8, we have to respect the result.
No, we dont have to respect the results.. The results are simple to explain...

Chicago- has rivals and are a relevant team therefore Toews has haters
Jersey- relevant and has rivals, therefore kovy has Haters
Flyers- were relevant for a long time, have many haters, especially Giroux
Islanders- haven't been relevant in a terribly long time, has no rivals, not a threat, Tavares has no haters.

Every good player on a team that's not relevant is loved by hockey fans.
