Fleury had to be scrambly in nets... The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles were awful and gave up 40 shots a game (no joke) when Fleury was 16. That team was a group of scrappers... including Fleury lol
i been with the league ever since the days of Jean-Sebastien Giguere...I watched goalies like Jose Theodore, Marc Denis, JS Giguere, Martin Biron, Roberto Luongo, Halak, Pavlek, Fleury all come up in the league and I have to say I think Fucale is better than most of them at the same age.........as for Fleury's scramble play, no he really made a lot of work for himself in nets, many times I watched him and i mean many and he had a simple to the body shot and would let the rebound out right in traffic, things like that a goalie should be trapping, Fleury turned a 25 save night into a 35 save night, have the rebounds he let out were because of him....I will say there was not an exciting goalie I watched than him and I will say he was one of my favs and still is.
