Lundqvist will eventually have a better career than Tim Thomas, but let us wait until he accomplishes more than Thomas before we try to justify such claims with Games Played.
In 7 Head to Head Seasons:

Tim Thomas beat Henrik Lundqvist in Vezina and Post Season All-Star voting twice, Henrik Lundqvist beat Tim Thomas 5 times.

Tim Thomas has had a better regular season Sv% than Henrik Lundqvist 3 times, Henrik Lundqvist has had a better regular season Sv% than Tim Thomas 4 times.

Thomas definitely has a better post season resume but Lundqvist has already has the superior regular season record.
