Palffy was the ONLY free agent signing that I was happy with as the season went along. When his goal scoring went down toward the end he was still putting points on the board w/ assists. People were claiming they were cheap and merely a benefit of playing w/ Crosby, but they count either way and I haven't seen anybody else consistantly put up points like that even when they do play with Sid.
I'm a season ticket holder as well. Fleury should have never been brought up in the first place. Since he is up here though, it would be bad move to send him back down. As far as goalies go he gives the best chance to win. Yesterdays loss was not his fault. He made some great saves, and he faced 51 shots..FIFTY ONE. Their was no "D" In front from him.
Palffy's heart hadn't been into it for a while for whatever reason, he couldn't hit the ocean for the last month or so he was on the team, it sucks it had to end the way it did though.
I feel bad for Fleury just because he has no "D" in front of him to help him out on most nights.
