If the Penguins had even average, not great, not phenomenal, but AVERAGE goaltending, the Pens would be moving on and this thread would not exist.
Instead we once again get handed one of the worst goaltending performances an NHL caliber goalie can have in a playoff series. To say Fleury isn't the problem is beyond delusional.
First issue is getting a new goaltender. That should be the only concern.
Fleury isn't the problem. It would be nice if he was, then fixing all our problems would be as simple as making one roster move but no, our problem is our defense and PK is. Fleury didn't play well but no goalie in the world was going to look good in front of that lackluster defense. Conversely, whenever we've seen "Hot Goaltending", typically it's actually hot defense.
MAF's been to the SCF twice and has proven himself over and over. Let's not become a goalie graveyard like Philly or Vancouver.
