Not quite. There have been 40 goalies play in the NHL this season, so average would be 20th. He's also got the best GAA of any goalie in the Atlantic Division and 5th best of any in the Eastern Conference.
I like Fleury, and he has been playing very well as far as wins and every other stat goes, but let's be honest - for him it is all about the playoffs. To that end, the most disturbing thing about his game is his penchant for soft goals. He has played so well lately that these are almost the ONLY ones he gives up, but in the playoffs soft goals are back-breakers.
I really hope he can clean that up, because I watch a TON of hockey and the goaltenders around the league that are at the top of the pile do not give those up as regularly as Fleury.
I'd still like to see him be more consistent with his rebound control as well. Again, not saying he isn't a very good goalie, but that would make him great. If he is great, the Pens will be a VERY hard out come playoffs.
