I agree withou that he worked at it. And was incredibly conditioned. That does not change the fact that I truly believe that Lundqvist is the better goalie. Positionaly, as sound as it gets.
You could make an argument for either goalie. Lundqvist is better positionally, but he is also significantly larger than Richter was. Richter could never play the way Hank does. And vice versa.

One thing is for certain, Lundqvist is an easier goalie to watch. Watching Richter come 15 feet out of the crease to cut down shot angles and dive around used to give me nightmares.
