You don't even need to look at it from a statistical point of view, just read the responses in the thread... and it is clear as black and white that this poll isn't close and the majority here heavily favour AP.
I think AP is a fantastic talent, but one year isn't enough for me... I need to see more.
and doughty has shown more than one year of greatness? come on. three years ago he was outstanding. two years ago he was consistently terrible and last year he ranged from terrible to great.
sure there is a difference between 5 and thirty, but neither one is enough to base any kind of absolute on. especially when we are talking about people's opinions
of hockey players.
my main point isn't that the poll was close, just the players. and the poll does not say anything about how much better people think AP is than DD. All it says is that the majority of voters prefer him. Maybe they prefer him a lot, maybe a little.
