Nah.  He played great in the playoffs early in his career.

 

He's just terrible now.  

 

2008 is the only year I would say he played great (statistically speaking) 2009 he played well from what I can remember as well. Other than that, he's been mediocre at best.

Fluery is the worst goalie to ever win a cup.

 

Most overrated player in the league.

Luongo has won a gold-medal is slightly behind the elite goalies in this league MAF is well - average?

Damn, pens are a bunch of aholes, but the league will brush this under the carpet because Buttman is SuperMarios toyboy...

Great game by the young stars of NYI.  Cheering for you to upset the mighty Pens.  Just play free and loose ... MAF is melting down just like last year.

Fleury has let in 40 goals over his past 10 playoff games. Isn't that insane?

And yet, we have post saying that we should bench Howard. Gotta love it.


Enjoying a huge slice of schadenfreude tonight. Between, The Canucks getting swept, The Sens going up 3-1, and watching The Pens losing a game with such dignity to The Isles and letting that series go even, I just can't stop smiling.

I agree with the schadenfreue here but it hurts me deeply to know that either Suter or Subban will get to lay their hands on Lidströms trophy...

As much as I hate to say it, Crosby is unreal this season.

But as long as they keep scoring the Isles can stretch this out and maybe win the series. Pittsburgh lacks goaltending and defense, I think.

Last night was another perfect case in point as to why I don't like the Pens. It reminded me so much of Game 2 in 2009 against us.  Pens lose, they act like spoiled little brats, throw punches, take cheap shots, etc.  They did it against us, they did it last year against Philly and now they're doing it this year against the Isles.  They are TERRIBLE losers.  Does frustration play a part in it?  Sure, but guys like Crosby and Malkin can't act like that for two reasons.  One, they're supposed to be the leaders of the team.  Coming unglued at the end of every losing game isn't leadership.  And two, the NHL wants them to be the faces of the league.  Being a sore loser isn't the image that the NHL is striving for.

 

As for the series, they'll switch to Vokoun and win the next two games.  Fleury was destroyed by the Isles in the regular season (3.60 GAA) too, while Vokoun was a brick wall (0.90 GAA in 3 games).  Plus, the NHL won't let their Golden Boy get knocked out by the Isles in the first round.  That's not good for business.

So...anybody think Letang gets the automatic, non-discretionary 10-game suspension?

 


40.3 Automatic Suspension – Category II - Any player who deliberately applies physical force to an official in any manner (excluding actions as set out in Category I), which physical force is applied without intent to injure, or who spits on an official,shall be automatically suspended for not less than ten (10) games.

Don't forget Iginla's unnecessary and potentially dangerous hit at the end of the game. Status quo for him, even moreso as a Penguin now.

They've "let" him get knocked out every year since 2009.  Why did "they" let that happen?

Wayne Gretzky would tell you that Fuhr was one of the best goalies ever....he's biased though.

 

On Fleury, he's still young (about the same age as Howard), but I think we've now seen more than enough to assume this isn't due to a young goalie working out the kinks, he has consistently demonstrated that he will be prone to really, really bad goals.  Just in the past 4 games, how many goals has he actually scored on himself.  There has been at least 4 or 5 that have come from the goal line or below.

 I love it.  And I love how the 8th seed is outscoring the Eastern All-Stars.

 I can't see the vid, did Letang abuse an official?  I hope just to test Shanaban, he did and gets a well deserved 10 game ban.  That would be amazing!

 At least goalies like Jimmy and His Quickness, the only bad goals are due to them needing to go to the Marty Brodeur school of puckhandling, or Jimmy can just get tips from Dats, but Fleury...god dude, hug the post when it goes behind the net.  Or better yet, don't, and we'll keep having good laughs at his expense.
