IGM, goaltenders of Fleury's pedigree are rare, and deserve to be judged by a different standard. Dwight Lebrosse had a great camp last year for the Pens, but no one thought twice about sending him back to juniors, because it was easy to dismiss as a fluke. You can't do that with Marc-Andre Fleury.

Fleury, while perhaps no Robb Stauber, is still an elite prospect who should be given the chance to be the exception to the rule, assuming his play warrants it. And so far, it has.

I don't see any harm in letting him determine his own fate. But, in the end, I think outside factors will intervene, and he'll be back in Cape Breton for the '03-'04 season.
