Good question. I definitely wouldn't put faith in the unofficial numbers over the written accounts of what people who saw these guys play say when it comes to goalies from back then.

But IIRC, the numbers were posted somewhere not that long ago and they seem to confirm that Worters and early Gardiner faced more shots than most other goalies, which is what you'd expect based off what is written about those two.
