Is it factually true for 1935 to 1956,
'51? Because that would still be a pretty established pattern of bias toward nominating the GAA leader to the 1st all-star squad in recognition. Maybe it just made sense to everyone at the time that a GAA leader (i.e. Vezina winner) would be as much of a glaring omission as a points leader (i.e. "Art Ross" winner... which didn't exist for some of that, but you know what I mean). No thinking required. I don't think that's the prevailing opinion of today, though (with respect to the GAA leader part, not the Vezina winner aspect).
I wonder who the last Art Ross winner to be left off of a post season all-star team is, if one ever has.
