1st Team All Star (1927) over ?
1st Team All Star (1928) over George Hainsworth and Alec Connell
1st Team All Star (1929) over ?
no records for 1930, but Charlie Gardiner led goalies in Hart voting
3rd Team All Star (1931) behind Charlie Gardiner and Tiny Thompson
2nd Team All Star (1932) behind Charlie Gardiner, ahead of George Hainsworth
3rd Team All Star (1933) behind John Ross Roach and Charlie Gardiner
2nd Team All Star (1934) behind Charlie Gardiner, ahead of Tiny Thompson
3rd Team All Star (1935) behind Lorne Chabot and Tiny Thompson
All this talk about the Western leagues reminded me to highlight this. In 1925-26, half the talent was still in the WCHL. George Hainsworth, for example, played in the WCHL from 1923-24 to 1925-26 from the ages of 28 - 30 before coming to the NHL when the WCHL folded.
So Worters' competition for the first of his 4 straight (unofficial) 1st Team All Stars was basically Alec Connell (who led the league in GAA by a wide margin playing for the stacked Ottawa Senators), Clint Benedict (the defending Cup winner but aging), and little else.
