meaningless stat imho.

base it on their careers as a whole, not a few games at the end of every season.

Henriks SV% his first 5 seasons are:
.922
.917
.912
.916
.921

Richters:
.904
.903
.901
.886
.910

Richter has never hit .920 for a season...Henrik has done it twice already.

Lundqvist has already equaled the # of shutouts that Richter had in his career.

Richter has never seen 2,000 shots in a season. Lundqvist has already seen that twice.

You're selling Lundqvist very very short.

Again, Im only ranking em as close as I do because of Richters longevity/sustainability. If I were to ignore that, it would be Henrik Lundqvist by a lot.
