I love the guy and he was great at times but please stop the "he was clutch when he had to be" stuff.

Mike Richter played parts of 15 seasons in the NHL...and he has 1 ring.

His worst PO moment I can remember was in the '92 playoffs. The Rangers were up on the Pens 2 games to 1. In Game 3, the Rangers were up 4-2 halfway through the 3rd period when Ron Francis took a shot from outside the blueline, before heading to the bench on a line change. The shot went in off Richter's glove and the Pens completed the comeback in OT. Vanbiesbrouk was in net the next game.

Of course, none of that changes the fact that Henrik has to come up big...and if he could channel a little bit of Richter's Cup run for the rest of the playoffs, that would be awesome
