I love Lundqvist but what does building around him actually mean?

You can build around players like Crosby and Ovechkin by getting players that complement their games but you can't do that with a goaltender.
I disagree. Building around Lundqvist is exactly what we are doing. Solid defensemen who more importantly are capable of moving the puck out of the zone. Lundqvist's biggest weakness is unquestionably his puck handling skills, I liken his puck movement to a 4 year old playing hot potato. The defensemen we're acquiring: Redden, Sanguinetti, Del Zotto, etc. are at the foremost puck movers. Hopefully their proficiency in puck movement will diminish Lundqvist's need to transition the puck out of the defensive zone.
