He gave up so many soft goals in that series, and actually topped Bryz for softies which was hard to do last season.

I really don't think he'll end that contract which has 3 years left on it, in Pittsburgh. It would probably do them good to unload that, and have more money to re sign Malkin.
People confuse "team with elite goaltender" with "goaltender on elite team."

Fleury is an average goaltender. Nothing more, nothing less.
