I really don't understand the intuitive assertion that Lehman belongs around the bottom part of 60.
I think the whole "West" thing is a bit of a red herring too. Holmes was Lehman's best competition, and by all accounts inferior, yet he was talented enough to win a Cup with an NHA team.
The thing that impresses me about Lehman's competition wasn't the 2-3 goalies he was competing with at a team in a tiny league, but how strong the teams he was facing were. Listing the non-Vancouver players he played against every year would probably tell more about the West's talent pool than just listing the goalies.
I still have no idea who to rank between him and Worters, but to have him off the ballot this round you'd probably really have to like Hainsworth and Thompson or really like the Bower/Fuhr/Smiths of the world and I just don't see it.
