Worsley is a real wildcard here for me, I was much more confident in my ranking of him coming into this project than I am now. If he never gets swapped for Plante would his Rangers career have been better than Rayner's? Two 3rd-Team spots are nice, but he wasn't going to take them to the finals and didn't garner the same award consideration.
Worsley actually got sent to the AHL following his trade to Montreal and Charlie Hodge was chosen as the Habs starter (This seemed to matter for other goalies). Worsley then rebounded obviously and earned a First and Second Team All-star spots, but in that time Hodge earned two Second Team placements himself. This looks awfully similar to Smith/Resch concerns, minus the playoffs where Smith did less platooning than Worsley.
That said we only leave two off this round and Giacomin looks good for one of those spots so Worsley will make my top 8.
