Vokoun is starting Game 3

Postby brwi on Wed Jun 05, 2013 3:22 pm

Might as well make it a thread:

Now that is settled, let's see a real team effort instead of the Game 2 collapse.

It's the right call.

It's also a very bad sign for Fleury's future here, I'm afraid.

The sixth goal Monday night was a blessing for HCDB. Made this call easier for deflecting critics.

Sure is, can't have 5.5 million on the shelf. I believe the grab for Hartzell was a good sign.

Lol Hartzell is not the future of the franchise.

It's goal-tending depth for a possible shakeup, like our franchise goalie disappearing.

Depth sure. But that was needed even if Fleury was completely spectacular.

I agree with the decision, same choice I would have made as a HC.

MAF is probably done in Pittsburgh and that kind of sucks but is reality. Any goaltender who is a significant part of winning a SC was obviously "elite" at that time, but his game has fallen apart in the playoffs too frequently since then. Game 4 vs. the Isles was just inexcusable. I'll miss the guy and thank him greatly for everything he brought to the Pens his whole career, especially when he was being ping-ponged back and forth from the minors to the NHL at the start of his career and keeping a good attitude, but it appears the Pens and MAF will be moving on in different directions after this season ends.

Thanks for being a big part of winning the SC and good luck in the future elsewhere, MAF.

Bravo to whomever created that one. I've emailed the link to a couple of Bruins fans who seemed to enjoy it.

It probably doesn't matter who is in net when the Pens are unwilling or unable to do anything resembling competent hockey.

Anybody have Patrick Roy's phone number? I think he would be interested in a French Canadian starting goalie.

MAF is done in Pittsburgh guys. The only way I see him staying is if there is a coaching change and Shero wants to see if he can perform better under a new coaching staff.

Fleury isn't done in Pittsburgh. Gilles Meloche is done in Pittsburgh.

Biggest game of the season tonight and the Pens aren't playing Fleury. That is everything you need to know about how they feel about him.

He's done.

You always start your number one in the most important games. Always. Even when they haven't played well. Fleury is no longer the number one goalie for this team starting today.
