Most think this guy in the video below will be the runaway winner. You might have heard of him. He's been in the news a lot lately.
Yeah well, most last year thought Crosby would be the runaway winner. So, I'm not sold yet on Evgeni, as good as he is, running away with it. Especially with others on the list below having stronger supporting casts helping them than he has.

Personally, I'm pulling for Wojtek Wolski... but then again I'm biased.
