Relative to the style of play in the league and the skill of their goaltending counterparts, I give the edge to Tommy. Mr Jiffyfly is right when he talks about him being a "money" goalie.

That said, one brilliant statistical season or a sizable contribution to a Cup winner by Fleury puts them on equal footing, IMO. Because, although Barasso was money for a long while, he also, near the end of his tenure, let up a fair share of heartbreakers, if I remember correctly.

As easy as it is to cut Tommy slack for the wide-open style of the 1990s Penguins, let's not forget that when Bylsma's system is exploited, we're left crossing our fingers that the goalie will make a big save on the breakaway.
