Nothing really too stupid which is good, because you hate to see it. Although there are more deserving defencemen than Stevens, but I won't complain.

Keep in mind that people vote for 2 defensemen and only one center. Anyone who considers Neids the best *or* the second-best defenseman in the east will cause his vote tally to go up. Anyone who thinks Thornton is secondbest in the east (I'd suspect behind Lemieux most frequently) wouldn't help Thornton''s vote any.

That is the full rankings, Stevens and Niedermayer with large leads.

Interesting. If Toronto fans weren't splitting their center vote between Sundin and Nieuwendyk, Sundin would be superclose to Thornton. There are 8689 people who have voted for Nieuwendyk as best center in the east. That's *bizarre*.

Chow with 5000 write-in votes is actually somewhat impressive.
