I didn't say Hank's positioning himself so deep in the net is bad for Hank. It obviously works for him even if it does leave him open to redirection on occasion. He more than makes up for that by giving himself more time to react.

But one of the strengths of Richter's game was in fact his positioning, his ability to cut down angles and also be shockingly quick at getting himself right back into position almost immediately.

Don't forget...they are/were BOTH amazing goaltendes.

this years team is younger overall sure, but the 94 team wasn't ancient by any means. in fact some of the core players were pretty young.

some of the key guys during the playoffs
Beuke 28
Graves 25
Kovalev 20
Leetch 25
Richter 27
Zubov 23
Messier 33
Larmer 32
Matteau 24
Tikkanen 29

Two guys I would have liked to have seen stay around long enough to win a cup in 1994...Jan Erixon and Mike Gartner.

One guy I would like to see win a cup with the current team...Vinny Prospal.

Mike Gartner, for sure, is a bit of a black spot on this organization for letting him go. You can thank Mark Messier for that(not one of his best moments). Neither was giving up Tony Amonte or Doug Weight.

As far as Vinny goes, I could care less. The guy was showing his age last season(granted he came back from an injury), and it would probably be even worse at this point.

Prospal was no ranger. just a journeyman who had one nice season with us.

would have rather seen Jagr stick with us and be with this squad right now, and i'm not even that pro Jagr.

Dear god no:

A) We are defensive team, and he is the least defensive responsible player we could get. Jagr blocking shots.....ok.

b) He was terribly slow and out of step with the flyers in the playoffs. His age has caught up with him.

Btw, I am very pro Jagr and was really annoyed when the fans booed him this year.
