No reason to discredit the Zlata Hokejka just because we don't know all the details. Also, see:

TheoKritos posted the point totals for the Golden Stick for all goalies down to about 20th place (and I reposted them in the same post where I posted the All-Star/best goalie awards), so there obviously were a fairly significant number of voters. Considering that the Golden Stick was an official award, I would imagine the voters were "experts" of some sort.

If you catch up and do the reading you will see that are no issues with Holeček's domestic achievements. Except you also think there are issues with Ray Bourque's NHL achievements before 2000-2001.
