That's 4 pretty big spots where he performed. When Richter was bad he was bad. When Richter was on he was spectacular to watch. But I always thought of him as inconsistent maybe more so than Hank which is why he is perceived to have a God mode. His lows were a bit lower and his highs a bit higher than Hank's.

And the crossbars and ifs comment is silly. You could use that as an argument against any goaltender or player for that matter.

There some revisions going on here on both sides of the argument. People are just as guilty of trying to tear Richter down a bit to make Hank look better as they are of building Richter up to make Hank look worse.
Henrik won gold, too. Richter gave up some big ones in 94, including a backbreaker against Jersey. Difference was he had players who could score. No one on this year's team could score, as we all saw.
