maybe, maybe not, but the fact remains is that Fleury's career as a starting goalie is in jeopardy after he leaves the Pens. The switch to Koun for this long will be mesmerized by every coach and franchise every year and will not be forgotten, period. He was never an elite goalie and if you look at his stats, shows he was avg at the best; he just had a juggernaut team front of him. How did he win the cup with avg stats (saving %)? Because he was with the Pens.
Think of this way and I would love to see this happen to those who are 'fleurist' - what do you think will happen if instead of Anderson or other goalie, it was Fleury against Pen's juggernaut offense?
Flower would be destroyed beyond imagination, of course i doubt that will happen as I dont think any team will keep Flower as a starting goalie anymore.
He is a pure instinctual goalie, which explains why he does well during shoot-outs. Other than that, he panics, over reacts, which cause him to lose his consistency. That's why they should prescribe him some ritalin!
