I feel vindicated.....

Postby Paul Baxter on Tue Oct 19, 2010 6:36 am

Here's the post I made on May 2, 2010, for which I was roundly criticized:

"Fleury continues to be the Pens' weak spot
by Paul Baxter on Sun May 02, 2010 4:06 pm

Fleury's performance continues to be the Pens's weak spot. If the Pens get eliminated by Montreal, it will be first and foremost becuase of Fleury. Fleury's playoff performance thus far has been very mediocre, which is reflected in the goaltending stats. Fleury ranks 15th out of 19 goalies in save percentage in this year's playoffs (based on all goalies who have played at least 2 games). Of course, he was mediocre during the regular season as well, ranking 31st out of 40 goalies (playing at least 27 games). The stats don't lie. Fleury is a below-average goalie who won a Stanley Cup because of the players in front of him, not because of him.

It continues to amaze me how grossly over-rated Fleury is by Penguin fans in general and by many posters on this board. I would love to see Shero trade Fleury in the off-season and get us a decent goaltender for a change
."


Based upon what has happened thus far this season, it appears that the many Fleury apologists on this board are finally seeing the light. :D

The only thing better than people who proclaim "I told you so!" are the people who do so when no one is listening and no one asked them.

Continued success!

After my wife insisted on taco night last night, I told her I was going to end up being in the office bathroom much of the morning. I feel vindicated.

Premature vindication is an embarrassing, yet treatable condition.

So, our backup (a former starter) plays 4 games and all of a sudden you're right? Pretty loose definition of vindication...so I'm gonna bookmark this thread and when Fleury plays the majority of the games for us this season and takes us to the playoffs like he always does I'm gonna vindicate all over this thread...

Just sayin...the idea that Fleury "takes us into the playoffs" is a little ridiculous.
