The other ones were not good, except his second one. Go right ahead, but I think Fleury is a far better goalie. Look at his career statistics in the regular season too, not bad. Perhaps he's tired out in the playoffs? Vokoun could help with that.

EDIT: Before you use the fact that Crawford has slightly better stats, Fleury started right out of the Draft (I think) with a HORRIBLE Pens team. As well, the Pens have an inferior defence (in my opinion) to the Hawks, and they're in the high scoring east in the hardest division. Chicago is in the west in one of the next best divisions, but more defensive than the east.
