Roy won in 86 and it wasn't until 93 they wOn again. There were some years in between he could've been the goat but he's still one of the best tO play the game and fluery will be too. As much as I hate Brodeur he's been very successful but not so much lately in the playoffs. Does that make him garbage?
I don't expect him to win the Cup every year. There is no excuse for playing as bad as he did in the playoffs this season and to a lesser extent against Montreal a couple years ago. The guy pushed a puck into his own net against the Flyers at one point. Pens fans and Fleury fans will get defensive about this, but it's true. The expectation with him should be a lot more. He's good enough to play better. His back to back solid regular seasons and some of his past postseason successes are evidence of this.
