There is no doubt in my mind Lehtonen would have played in the NHL last year if he was a penguins prospect.
Last year ? Nah, the Pens had Hedberg, Aubin and Caron.
Even so, I doubt Lehtonen would put Fleury's numbers and general impression as far as maturity goes.
As for having to choose one, I like both, but that is quite logical to compare the two.
As I said before, I was a firm believer Lehtonen was the best goalie prospect in the world.
So far, I've changed my mind. But of course it's only the beginning of the season and Fleury could falter.
It still doesn't take anything away from his accomplishments so far.
