RETRO VEZINA VS. JENNINGS
The actual Vezina Trophy winner, for lowest goals-against average, would have been our pick for the Retro Vezina on 30 occasions. As such, we omitted them from this list. For example, we deemed 193132 Vezina winner Charlie Gardiner the best stopper that season, so there is no Retro Vezina to give him. In some cases, before 1980-81, the old Vezina went to multiple goalies who met statistical criteria. The Retro Vezina declares just one true winner of the Vezina.
