As usual, Hockey Outsider explained it much better than I could.

Basically, I already had him quite high this round, as he was by all accounts, the second most dominant defenseman (after Shore) prior to World War 2. What clinched it for me was his incredible Hart record, of which I was unaware. Yes I know that defensemen got more Hart recognition prior to World War 2, but still...

Both should be in the Top 5 in this round, but I do have Clancy a bit ahead.

As for the Bendict vs. Broda, vs. Durnan thing, whatever order they are in (and I'll probably have them Benedict first, then Broda, then Durnan), I do think they form the next tier of goalies and all of them should be voted in this round.
