Who cares? You could probably make the argument that the goaltender is the least important position on the team right now.

Unless Fleury has a disastrous third period, he's got the edge. Even though it's hard to blame Vokoun, the Bruins got 6 goals on him in 4 periods and 5 in 32:27. Something's gotta change.

If the team continues to play like this, it's not going to matter who's in net unless they steal a win.

I think DB should decide this via a coin flip during their next practice. It could serve to prove a point that they're not going to win anything, regardless of who's in goal, unless the rest of team plays better. And for the record, that's basically how I feel about it.. it's pretty much a coin flip between the two..

You're going to need your goaltender to steal a game or 2 to come back in this series. MAF has a better chance of stealing wins. Go with him.

I think that's where we're at.

He deserved to be benched up until this evening and now it's his opportunity to show some magic.
If the rest of the team doesn't show up, it's irrelevant.

Switching to Fleury hasn't been the magical switch I hoped it be but I think we're in desperation territory now. I don't feel good about him but he's the desperation choice.

I guess, here's the ultimate chance for redemption. What he does in Game 3 will show what MAF is all about, good or bad.

I'd trust my dog's hockey opinion before Healy's.

You have to start Vokoun Wednesday. Fleury let in 2 weak goals again. If Fleury starts, the series and season is over. With Vokoun, there is still a chance.

I was all for hoping Fluery would regain his mojo and lead the Pens to the promised round after going down 0-2 as I thought they would. But jeesh, he sure didn't do anything to give a brother hope. Honestly, it's not going to matter who's in net if the Pens play this way. So I say Vokoun.

And Despres.

And Bennett.

Need guys who can skate with the puck.
