I thought the CBC guys made a valid point when they argued that Bylsma should've put Fleury in after going down 3-0 - it's been almost 4 weeks since he last played and getting him some game action in case they have to go with him wouldn't have hurt, even if the plan is still for Vokoun to start. It would've been the perfect spot to let him get some action, and the fact that Bylsma didn't pull the trigger is probably the biggest indicator that Fleury's playoffs are over.
I agree. I don't think the plan was ever to ride Vokoun to a cup, but he played so well it was impossible to change back. Down 3-0 would have been the ideal time to kick the tires on MAF. I'm not sure how many times there has ever been a gaoltender controversy in June.
I don't see how that would be a good idea. All you would have done is generated a controversy for no reason. Let's say he winds up making some highlight-reel saves. Some people are already suggesting we go back to MAF after game 1; had he come in and performed well, even for the last 10 minutes, and Byslma would have spent the next two days with an onslaught of MAF/TV questions. If you need him, him playing those ten minutes isn't going to make much of a difference IMO.
