Logical fallacy my friend. Being on a great team doesn't in any way negate the role of the goaltender, which is what it all boils down to. It's quite funny that people here still question MA Fleury's pedigree by holding him to a playoff loss last year and a WJC loss several years ago. Well, Patrick Roy once gave up 6 goals in a Game 7 Conference Finals game before the 2nd period had ended. Dominik Hasek once gave up an overtime Game 7 goal to Darius freaking Kasparitis. It happens to the best of them. Go back and watch games 6 and 7 of the '09 Stanley Cup Finals and remind yourself how Fleury stole the show on the biggest stage in hockey. When Price has accomplished half of that, give me a ring.
