Hart Trophy Top 5 finishes
Lehman and Holmes were not eligible. Still available goalies aren't getting much Hart consideration, so this is the last time I'm going to post this table.

Smythes include Retro Smythes as determined by the HHOF. I'm only giving goalies credit for Cup wins and finals when they played the majority of the games. By this metric, Vachon gets credit for the 1969 Cup, as he played 8 games vs 7 for Gump. Vachon also played more games than Gump in the 1967 loss in the finals. Giacomin makes the cut for losing the 1972 finals - he played 10 games and Villemure played 6.

I'm not including Lehman's 2 lost Cup challenges both in 1910 before the first playoffs for the Cup were established (starting in 1914 the Cup finals pitted the PCHA champion vs the NHL champion). Retro Smythes only go back to 1918, so they don't cover Lehman's win in 1915 or Holmes' wins in 1914 and 1917.
