Came across something interesting, figured this was the best place to put it. (If somebody has already brought this up, I appologize, I haven't read through the entire thread in detail.)
Check out the back of the
Roy Worters 1933-34 hockey card
. Apparently he has "for four years earned the vote as 'League's Best Goalie'."
This gives the impression that there was some sort of vote on the leagues top goaltender sometime in the late 20's and/or early 30's, aside from the Vezina ( a statistical award) and All-Star teams (which came about in 1931; Worters was a 2nd team AS in 1932 and 1934). According to the data posted in this thread, Worters was the top vote-getter amongst goalies for the Hart in '26, '28, '29, and '34. Could that be what the card is reffering to?
