Goaltenders

  1. Mike Richter, R (1988-2003)
  2. Henrik Lundqvist, R (2005-Active)

If younger Blueshirt fans didn’t like the selection of Callahan to the fourth-line, they’ll shutter to think who was omitted from a goaltender point of view.

Well, not omitted from the roster, just as the starter.

It is not Henrik Lundqvist who starts in net for the Rangers ultimate 20-man roster. Rather, it’s Mike Richter.

Lundqvist ranks first in Rangers history in certain categories like save percentage (.920), saves (17,805), and shutouts (59). He doesn’t lead in Stanley Cup Championships.

For that reason alone, Mike Richter gets the nod.

He was there every step of the way in 1994. It didn’t come easy and the competition was rough. Nobody could ever get on Hank for his team’s shortcomings against the Los Angeles Kings in 2014, but still, the Cup winner always gets the nod.
