Like last time, the fan vote most closely matched Bruce's ballot. The fan vote disagreed most with Derek's ballot, then Scott's ballot, and there were some significant disagreements overall, much moreso than last time. The fans disagreed with our panel by voting Kale Kessy, Mitch Moroz, Antti Tyrvainen, Philip Larsen, Travis Ewanyk, Daniil Zharkov, Aidan Muir, Anton Lander, and Toni Rajala much higher than the panel:

Player Reader's Rank C&B Rank Change
Kale Kessy 30 41 11
Mitch Moroz 27 37 10
Antti Tyrvainen 39 46 7
Philip Larsen 13 20 7
Travis Ewanyk 29 36 7
Daniil Zharkov 23 29 6
Aidan Muir 38 42 4
Anton Lander 10 14 4
Toni Rajala 12 16 4

The fans also had significant disagreements on a number of players ranking them much lower than the panel:

Player Reader's Rank C&B Rank Change
John McCarron 41 28 -13
Lee Moffie 43 33 -10
Brad Hunt 40 31 -9
Kyle Platzer 42 34 -8
Dillon Simpson 20 13 -7
Jackson Houck 33 26 -7
Erik Gustafsson 28 23 -5

There were a some interesting trends in this vote, including Jordan Eberle's drop from 2 to 4, Toni Rajala's rise to 12 from 22, the disagreement with the panel and rise of face-punching forwards from the WHL and the significant disagreements on NCAA players.
