Speculation: The GMs who vote on the Vezina prefer guys with track records, while the media who vote for the All-Star like fresh stories.

Barrasso Vezina record: 1st (1984), 2nd (1985), 2nd (1988), 2nd (1993), 3rd (1998), 7th (1989) 9th (1986)
Barrasso All-Star record: 1st (1984), 2nd (1985), 2nd (1993), 3rd (1988), 4th (1998), 8th (1986)

Vanbiesbrouck Vezina record: 1st (1986), 2nd (1994), 4th (1989), 6th (1992), 6th (1987), 6th (1988), 6th (1995), 7th (1996), 8th (1997)
Vanbiesbrouck All-Star record: 1st (1986), 2nd (1994), 4th (1997), 9th (1988)

Joseph Vezina record: 2nd (1999), 3rd (1993), 3rd (2000), 4th (1994), 5th (1997), 8th (2001)
Joseph All-Star record: 4th (1993), 4th (1999), 5th (2000), 8th (1992)

min 2 votes required for an All-Star ranking.
Roberto Luongo, on the other hand, did slightly better with the writers than with the GMs:

Luongo Vezina record: 2nd (2007), 3rd (2004), 3rd (2011), 4th (2009), 7th (2006), 7th (2008), 10th (2010)
Luongo All Star record: 2nd (2004), 2nd (2007), 3rd (2009), 3rd (2011), 5th (2008), 8th (2006)
