And Brimsek was 2nd in Hart voting, while Broda did not receive a single vote for the Hart. Obviously, winning the Cup so easily makes the season better though.



Broda finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, (war), (war), (war), 3rd, 1st in All Star voting during this period.

He beat Brimsek by 1 voting point in 1940-41 and 1947-48 was a tiebreaker.

Agree that he was better than 4th best - I think he was clearly better than Rayner. In the 3 years leading up to the war, I think he was clearly the 2nd best goalie in the world after Brimsek.
And he won 5 Cups. That should count for something.
