Hap Holmes ([b]who regularly finished behind Lehman in the PCHA[b]) was WCHL 1st Team All Star in 1925. Hainsworth was 1st Team WHL All Star in 1926. Bascially confirms what you said. Though it's definitely noteworthy that those two were considered "head and shoulders" above everyone
According to the PCHA's one-man referee crew, Mickey Ion, who picked the all-star teams himself* and chose Lehman as the first team all-star in 10 of 13 years.

Of course there is other evidence that supports Lehman's reputation, but unlike other all-star teams this one is not the result of a group consensus.

*I know you know this, just adding to your point.
