I realize why he wasn't drafted, but Jim Carey, G is not only the last 1st Team All Star remaining, he's also the only 2-time Vezina finalist remaining. In Carey's rookie season (1994-95), he was 3rd in both Vezina and All-Star voting. In his second year, he won the Vezina and was a 1st Team All-Star. Then his lack of lateral movement was exposed in the playoffs and he quickly lost his confidence.

A two-time Vezina finalist should be selected by now even though he literally did nothing else, right?

I believe Paul Bibeault (1944 product of the War), Mario Lessard (1981), Steve Mason (2009) and Pekka Rinne (2010) are the only 2nd Team All-Stars remaining. Rinne was mentioned up thread though.
