I guess I'll get this party started by posting some tables (edit, I took too long making them. looks like the party already started)

NHL All-Star Teams (1st, 2nd, and 3rd)

Player First Second Third Total
Wayne Gretzky 8 7 1 16
Jean Beliveau 6 4 1 11
Mario Lemieux 5 4 0 9
Stan Mikita 6 2 0 8
Phil Esposito 6 2 0 8
Bobby Clarke 2 2 3 7
Bryan Trottier 2 2 1 5
Howie Morenz* 3 1 0 4
Mark Messier 2(4) 0(1) 1 3(6)


Messier's numbers include just All-Star C and combined All-Star Teams.

*About half of Howie Morenz's prime was before the official All-Star Teams. We do have an unofficial All-Star Team from 1927-28, and Morenz was a unanimous 1st Team All-Star (with most votes coming at C, but a couple putting him at 1st Team LW with Nighbor at C). Edit: I'm adding his 1928 1st Team vote to the table above. We have no information for any other seasons before 1931.

Hart Voting Top 10 finishes

Finishes in italicsmeans he had less than 10% of 1st place's points; these shouldn't be treated as any form of consensus vote. Not all finishes are created the same. In 1930, Morenz finished in 7th place, but had 60% of 1st place's voting points. In many years, 7th place would barely have any votes. In 1970, Mikita finished 4th, but with only 10 points to winner Bobby Orr's 156 (only Tony Esposito was close to Orr in voting).

Bobby Clarke 1, 1, 1, 2, 4, 6, 6, 8, 10, 10
Jean Beliveau 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 7, 8
Phil Esposito 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 6, 6
Wayne Gretzky 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Mario Lemieux 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5
Mark Messier 1, 1, 2, 9
Stan Mikita 1, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 9
Howie Morenz 1, 1, 1, 2, 6, 6, 7, 8
Bryan Trottier 1, 2, 2, 3, 5

Messier was undoubtedly hurt in Hart voting by Gretzky's presence. The only Hart votes he received before Gretzky left Edmonton were in 1986-87, finishing 9th in Hart voting while 3rd in NHL scoring.
