The Remaining Awards Questions

Alexander Ovechkin received 128 of a possible 134 first-place votes for the Hart trophy. He also received four second-place votes, a third-place vote and no fourth- or fifth-place votes.

A little quick math reveals that Ovie was on 133 of 134 ballots, meaning that some joker - a member of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association - didn't think that Alex was one of the top five players "adjudged to be the most valuable to his team" in the NHL this year.

Does that guy/gal really deserve a future vote? Should he/she be identified? Drawn and quartered? Discuss.

H/t to Pensblog on the math.
