Hank will be fine; he's just never going to be a world beater when it comes to handling the puck.
Honestly, IMO puck handling is the most overrated skill for a goaltender. What are there 2 that are above average at it? I can think of Brodeur and Mike Smith. I can think of 2 goals that Lundqvist gave up because his mishandled the puck and one of those was when he tried to play Superman against the Flyers and score an empty netter up 3-1.
