Best Shootout Goalie

After the game against the Islanders and their Dubli (not even gonna try) goalie I was thinking who's the best goalie for a shootout in the league. I saw some stats on ESPN a couple of weeks ago and Hank was something like fourth in terms of saves in a shootout. Not sure I would rather have any other goalie going into one.
Also, anyone have a doubt that Mike Richter could have gone down as the best shootout goalie ever, had they had them in his time? He was in the league 12 (I think) years before getting scored on in a penalty shot. After the 94 all-star game, I'm sure Pavel Bure would back me up on this one too.

I don't know about Richter being the best ever, it's kind of a mute point since we'll never know, but I will say that I'll take my chances with Henke in a shootout anyday.

Yup, all we need to care about is that when we have Henke, we have an advantage in the shootout against most teams.

Richter would have been the best shootout goalie in the game hands down.

Cant wait to se AM29 in the shootout next year.

I'm almost glad Richter isn't around for this shootout stuff. I think in his entire career, he's only faced like 12 penalty shots. In this new NHL with the shootout, you're easily looking at 12 PS/SO situations per season, at least. I have a feeling he'd be great at it, but I'd rather not know and let his legacy stand as is.

Lundqvist is 4th in the NHL is shootout sv% among goalies facing at least 20 attempts

Holmqvist .963
Denis .900
Thomas .826
Lundqvist .820

Holmqvist and Denis combined to give Tampa a 10-1 record in shootouts. Lundqvist was 8-4.

Too bad those top three leave a lot to be desired in everything but shootouts.
