Interesting, why the tiebreaker? Doughty lost by 11 votes. Runner up was a closer race - Doughty only had 8 votes more than Keith.

I'm trying out an experiment to see if the results will change. When I made the poll, Letang was leading by 10 votes. 51 voters didn't vote for either Letang or Doughty. If Letang still wins this one, I might avoid these tiebreakers in the future if the results are not that close (example: more than 10 votes apart). I felt that it wouldn't hurt to make a tiebreaker in order to get a better consensus by narrowing the field greatly.

Letang was having a better season this year. But when Doughty's been at his best, he's better IMO. He was better during the playoffs last year than I've ever seen Letang at, and he made the Canadian Olympic roster at age 20, and was one of their better Dmen.

Doughty has been incredibly overrated the past 2 years.

I would say he has consistency problems. When he's "on", he's among the best. But he hasn't shown the ability to sustain that over an 82 game season.

I chose Doughty but had I read this before picking, I would have voted Letang. 11 votes (edit: now up to 17 votes) is a clear win.

Interesting how close the race is between these two, now, though.

If its the playoffs, give me Doughty. That's the x-factor for me. Who would you want on your team for the stretch run?

Letang. Doughty definitely has the talent, but it is hard to vote for him when he doesn't play up to the level that he can - at least on a consistent basis.
