He plays on an very defensive minded team that has a system in place that plays to his strengths.

Right now I put his chances slightly ahead of Ryan Millers (slightly better regular season stats but lesser postseason stats, and a slight edge on international play). Unless he makes some noise in the playoffs.
This is true. I'm much more of a proponent of Fleury judging on what he has already accomplished, his age and even how he's playing now which isn't hurting him. Miller himself has a Vezina and is a Silver Medal in 2010 against the Canadian dream team even possibly better than Lundqvist's gold?
