When we talked about Hainsworth vs Worters in the pre-1950 research thread, the consensus was that in 1929 Worters carried the Americans in a way that Hainsworth and Connell never had to do for their teams. The latter two goalies set legendary statistical records, but Worters got the awards recognition that year.

There's a good argument to be made that Worters was the best goalie in the world for about half a decade, which is more than you can argue for most of the current candidates.
