So a close scoring race in February might show in the voting, but if a player starts to run away with it in March it will have no effect. You can see this in the 1937-38 voting where Drillon pulled away from Dillon after the voting was already done.

I found a paper that published the voting totals for both the 1st and 2nd teams for 1938-39, so I wont bother adding up the individual ballots at this time, but as noted there are some votes missing, and there's an extra 2nd team LW vote. It isn't unusual for some ballots not to include a 2nd team coach selection, or a 1st for that matter, so there may not be any votes missing there.

ALL-STAR TEAMS: 34 voters, 1st and 2nd (3-1) format
GOALTENDER: FIRST TEAM: Frank Brimsek, Bos 15; Earl Robertson, NYA 7; Tiny Thompson, Bos-Det 7; Dave Kerr, NYR 5

COACH: FIRST TEAM: Red Dutton, NYA 15; Art Ross, Bos 14; Lester Patrick, NYR 5
SECOND TEAM: Art Ross, Bos 14; Lester Patrick, NYR 12; Red Dutton, NYA 4 (30)
The missing votes:

1st team LD: Jack Crawford, Bos 5
2nd team RD: Dit Clapper, Bos 4; Babe Pratt, NYR 1
2nd team RW: Tom Anderson, NYA 2
Extra vote for 2nd team LW was Mac Colville, NYR 1
There were 4 ballots with no 2nd team coach named.

One ballot had Bauer and Dumart switched at wing positions, and this was corrected for the final totals released by the NHL.
