The Best of the West poll will have a new look come February.
After several teams commented/complained to the WHL that they felt the Most Overrated Player category was negative and they likely would no longer participate in the poll, we chose to delete the category and continue with the poll.
While many teams over the years have left the category blank, it became an issue this season when Vancouver goalie Tyson Sexsmith topped the voting despite having 34 wins and a 2.02 goals against average. Maybe if he had let in a few more goals.
