People who wants the pens to give Fleury a try out are asking this question : why not give him 5-10 games ?
To which I'll reply : what is there to gain for the pens to play him on what is in most people opinion the worst team in the NHL ?
Even Brodeur would be hard pressed to bring this team into the playoffs. What about a 19 years old kid who has no experience in the NHL ?
Fleury could possibly be ready but you guys should ask yourselves these questions :
1. Can Fleury's development be stunted if he goes back to the Q even if he's almost NHL ready ?
2. How much is there to gain by playing him 10 games or more compared to the risk there is to play him against the best players in the world on a bottom 5 team in the NHL ?
Is there even a goalie coach in Pittsburgh ?
Send the kid back to his junior team. Let him build his confidence. There's not enough to gain compared to the risk.
