Both were two-time second team all stars. But one of Harmon's AS spots was pretty weak.

In 1944-45, many top players were off to war, including Jack Stewart and Ken Reardon. Here is the AS voting from that season:

Butch Bouchard, Mtl 340.5 (15-10-1-0); Flash Hollett, Det 273 (1-12-5-7); Babe Pratt, Tor 93.5 (1-1-5-9); Glen Harmon, Mtl 60 (2-1-1-0); Frank Eddolls, Mtl 58.5 (1-0-2-1); Jack Crawford, Bos 57 (3-2-4-0); Earl Seibert, Chi 45 (0-1-6-2)

Basically Harmon squeaked in ahead of three other guys (two of whom received a higher number of votes in a funky weighted voting system) during a war-depleted season.

His 1948-49 AS season looks legit, as do both of Reise's.
