Well, we had Kirk a few years later as Richter's backup. I remember that a bit more clearly as it was in my teens. I think the position revolutionized as goaltending schools realized the best way to play was to take the bottom of the ice away from the shooter. Especially in close where the angle to elevate the puck is extreme, and shooters rarely have time and space to get any extra accuracy on the shot.

I was never a goaltender, but one thing I absolutely hated was playing against a southpaw. It messes with your head.
