I think Fleury's a better player than St. Louis. I think Theo should be in the HHOF; whether he makes it is another issue. (Looking forward to reading Theo's book between games at the WJC). As for St. Louis being in the HHOF, I think he has a few chapters to write yet. Tremendous two-way player with fantastic speed. I think he's the best playmaking winger in the game. (Just look at what he's meant for Steven Stamkos. Not saying that Stamkos is a product of St. Louis, but it helps).

But I like St. Louis in his role - a skilled, fast, two-way guy who can finish plays or set them up on a line with Lach - more than Fleury in his role. I think Theo's in trouble as the puck-winner. Love his grit and his fearlessness. But he won't be able to win the battles along the boards and in front of the net that the Cairo second line needs.
