Easily my favourite thread on the board - it's like Christmas morning every time I see that it's been bumped.

Two things I'm eagerly looking for, in case anyone knows...one would be 1982-83 all-star voting totals for goaltenders.

The other is this - I've been calculating "Win Shares" for goaltenders on my page for awhile (with a lot of help from this thread). For instance, Patrick Roy's all-star vote totals look like this:

 PTS1st 2nd 3rd RANK SHARE
1986-87 29 1 4 12 4 0.11
1987-88 64 2 15 9 2 0.20
1988-89 291 52 10 1 1 0.92
1989-90 304 59 3 0 1 0.97
1990-91 134 1 43 0 2 0.41
1991-92 303 54 11 0 1 0.93
1992-93 2 0 0 2 7 0.01
1993-94 86 7 13 12 3 0.32
1995-96 1 0 0 1 8 0.00
1996-97 47 0 5 32 3 0.18
1997-98 1 0 0 1 6 0.00
1998-99 4 0 1 1 7 0.01
2000-01 46 3 7 10 4 0.15
2001-02 226 30 24 4 1 0.75
2002-03 12 1 1 4 6 0.04

Roy's all-star first team selections came in 1989, 1990, 1992 and 2003. 1989-90 was his most "dominant" selection, when he garnered 97% of possible vote points (304 out of a possible 310).

The trick is accurately figuring possible possible vote points for 1980-81 and earlier; since the number of first-, second- and third-place votes are hard to come by it's not easy to just calculate them directly. If anyone can help there, I'd love to know!
