Rory Fitzpatrick falls to 3rd
Niklas Lidstrom has taken over 2nd place in voting. Anaheim's Scott Niedermayer leads the defencemen with 540,380 votes followed by Lidstrom at 522,345 and Fitzpatrick at 486,842.
You know what happened? 99% of it is because Gretzky voted for Lidstrom about 30,000 times because he didn't want to see Rory get in.
The other 1% was from the campaign losing steam, or people's interest.
