Sure, the reason we lost is we couldn't score on PP. Yes, the pens could use a better front net presence, but to even think that is the reason they have been eliminated 3 straight years is stretching it.

I just watched the highlights of the entire 09 DET/PEN final today on NHL network. MAF was horrible there too outside of 2 games. Pens won despite his sloppy play.

This team will be scary if they ever get solid (.918+) goaltending.
Amen. Watching many of the '09 series games over the extended offseason made me see how poorly MAF is and was. It seems like that '09 playoff run was a fluke.

If Fleury can't get it together this season and be a top ten goalie I'd trade for a guy like Kippersoft and move away from Fleury. This is Fleury's "prime" and he is a pretty bad starting goalie.
