I'm all for critiquing the team win or lose. One pet peeve of mine on this board is how a shootout win or loss will completely change what you can get away with posting after the game is over. At the same time Fleury's been fine seriously.
I think Fleury is definitely still working on problems between his ears, but about 70% of the time people ***** about him I wonder what exactly they want him to do.
It is impossible to cover every little wicket if you are a shooter tutor. Goalies need to see the puck , where it's going and make sure it doesn't sneak through. It seems like every game there are three or four moments where Fluery has no clue where the puck is and it's a matter of luck if it goes in or stays out. I already noticed that Vokoun, despite lacking Fluery's athleticism, is much better at tracking and covering pucks in his blue paint.
