That's similar to what happened to Ray Bourque during the 1989-90 season. Bourque and Mark Messier were the top 2 candidates for the Hart Memorial Trophy ( NHL MVP ) and Messier ended up winning by just a few points. Later it was revealed that an Edmonton sports writer did not put Bourque in his top 10 list when even a 9th place vote would have resulted in a tie and a 8th place vote would have given the award to Bourque. :X
