I liked Richter more. His athleticism I think was of a higher order. I mean, he could do the six-goalie system all by himself (hyperbole, but close) by doing those upright pipe-to-pipe splits. He really was comparatively alone on the ice, when you consider the defensive help he got. His glove hand was great... and seeing him, an American Olympian, and lifelong Ranger, lifting the Cup - let's say it gave a lot of pride.
What do people see in Lundqvist's actual game, as he plays on the ice, that makes them think he's the "best"? To me he's very, very good, mostly in a positional sense. His glove has always been a sore spot. It seemed to me the low shot blocking always helped him stay upright to assist with the high shots.
