I think Lundqvist is better than Richter. Laugh away.

As to making the big save, I remember some big misses in big spots by Richter, even
if you don't. Who can forget his amazing gaffe against the Penguins in the Playoffs?

He had a .904 career save pct., certainly not an outstanding achievement. He was a good goaltender who won a Cup backstopping the best team in hockey, including Leetch at his very best, Messier, Kovalev and a host of others. Compare that to the teams Lundqvist has been asked to perform behind.
