The first results are in! A total of 534 votes were cast in the first round, which means 10 of you each voted about 53 times. I thank you!
There you have it, folks. Gabe the Babe dispatched Chris Higgins’ abs, taking home the trophy for biggest win with 88% of the vote. Disney Prince Kris Letang had the second highest with 84.3% over Lupul. Benn, Josi, Seguin, Crosby, Stamkos and Carey Price all topped 70% in their respective categories.
The closest race went to Marko Dano, who beat Joe Pavelski by three votes. THREE! Democracy, people. Other tight races were Ekblad over Lundqvist by 4% and Wilson over Gingeroux by 6%. John Tavares won by 7% – way too close for me, but I would have just lied if he’d lost. (Democracy!)
The most heated campaign came from @eyetotelescope and #TeamToews, who locked up the Original Canadian Dream’s 8% win over Jeff Carter.
It only gets tougher from here. Top 2nd round match-ups have our professional analysts buzzing…
Crosby v Letang: Battle of the Burgh
Tavares v Stamkos: We are All 91
Benn v Neal: Tatts. Hair. Awkward. Dallas.
Get to it! Round Two voting will end Friday, March 25 at 8 PM Eastern, just in time to see Batman v Superman… for Wonder Woman, obviously.
