Actually IIRC it was the two all stars from the prior season. Most of the early ASG dates that I've seen are in October. I don't think they changed that until some time in the 60s, after the initial wave of new teams was added.

EDIT: it's puzzling that 50% of the time there's only one goaltender selected and the other 50% 2 goaltenders. I don't see any consistency whatsoever.
Yeah I couldn't figure that out either. Not sure if that means that only the one played, or if that means that the first or second team all-star was on the Cup Champion.
