Glad to see someone make a case for Worters. I honestly have no idea what to do with him this round. I like him better than Smith or Thompson, but that's a wide range.

Worters has the best Hart record of any available goalie by far, but all of it was in a 4 year period.

4th in 1926
10th in 1927
2nd in 1928 (to Howie Morenz)
1st in 1929

5th in 1934

What a stretch of 4 years! He stopped getting Hart consideration as soon as the forward pass was allowed. Not sure what to make of that. According to the All-Star voting, he was probably the 2nd best goalie after Charlie Gardiner even after 1930, so it's not like he didn't adjust. He actually received more Hart votes in 1934 than the 1st Team All Star Charlie Gardiner, possibly because by 1934, Gardiner's team was actually pretty good.
