Get Kennedy and Vitale out of the lineup, too, they stepped in admirably, but this team can't win a Cup without Jussi and Tanner Glass.

Oh snap. :fist:

In the playoffs you go with what's working. This isn't time to be experimenting to see if Fleury is ready to play acceptable goal. They already have a goalie who's performing and helping them win. Worry about how Fleury responds to benching if/when it's needed.

HAHAHHA. Yeah, he's REALLY bounced back in the last 3.5 post seasons.

Give your head a shake. Yeah he won a Cup, in two thousand FREAKING NINE!

Yeah, team defense makes you put the puck in your own net. Team defense makes you act like a spaz when the puck is behind the net.

Wow.

If the theory is that we can't win the cup without fleury, then fleury will have his chance again. And it will happen naturally. Not as a result of some baffling lineup decision. There's no point in going back to him right now.

DB's generally a don't-change-if-you-win kind of guy (as are most coaches). To a fault even...some might say. :pop:

If he changes the goalie for Game 1, he is way overthinking this. Same, same.

There's also the theory that Fleury's current state won't allow him to handle a relief situation if Vokoun get in a jam. I'm not sure what I'd do, but it's not as much of a no brainer as starting Vokoun in Game 5.

I can't believe anyone genuinely would start MAF if they were the coach.

Will Vokoun need help down the road? Yeah. But he has earned the right to hold the reigns right now. Flower has not. End of story.

Man am I tired of hearing "Oh we need to do put Fleury back in so he doesn't lose confidence, and do this, this and that so he doesn't get cold and lose confidence!" First off I'm pretty sure his confidence is long gone. But if he's that much of a head case that sitting out a few games makes him so sad and unconfident that he can't perform if he goes back in, then I'm pretty sure none of us wanna see the day that he does go back in.

Agreed, but seriously, Fleury has been bad since the cup win, you get a lot of slack when you win a cup, but he should have reached the end of his rope by now.

Even having an option makes me smile. I chose MAF because he's shown higher end top game play. And if you go with MAF early and he's not good, you go to Vokoun like they did last series.

He did have a shutout in our most recent playoff series.

Yep, it was a great move by Shero in the offseason - this team is deep in all areas. We laugh about TK, but having the option to insert a guy whose scored a few goals in a SCF to provide a boost is unreal depth. Same with your goalies. I suspect MAF gets into trouble trying to do to much and not trusting his defense around him, and that Vokoun gets in trouble when a team constantly runs him left to right, down and up (maybe). The penguins can go with whatever goalie works at the moment.

I'm going with the "still in high school" option.

I was pretty irrational in my support of players back then, too. When you are young, it's all sunshine, rainbows, and ice cream.

he had a shutout in the first game. he's a goalie. the thread is about goalies and which one should play.

I personally don't think it's a given that either goalie is the obvious starter for the remainder of the series but if I had to guess what HCDB is thinking I'd guess he feels that MAF is the real goalie of the Penguins.

If I was the coach I'd be thinking the same thing. TV came here knowing that he'd be called upon to relieve a sometime erratic star. That's his role. IMO MAF is this team's goalie.

I guess we should ignore the fact that our most recent shutout came from Vokoun, after Fleury imploded.
