This thread is full of over reactions/the usual suspects that were just waiting to pounce. Fleury has played 4 games, he's had 1 poor one, and that game he simy played down to the level as the rest of the team. Both Fleury's wins have been more impressive than bothy Vokoun's wins, despite Vokoun's shutout. Vokoun is a solid goalie and I'm glad we have him to push Fleury and step in when needed. However, I have a feeling many in this thread clamouring for him to start are the same ones yelling we would never win a cup with Fleury before '09, saying we should trade Fleury and make Conklin the number 1 in '08, trade Fleury and make Johnson the #1 in October 2010.
I for the most part support Fleury, won't hide that but will say I am somewhat disappointed that be hasn't take. It to the next level in terms of his consistency. But at the same time, no goalie is going to have gaudy numbers playing for the Penguins over the past few seasons. They aren't a goalie stat friendly team. And people have to stop trying to find a scapegoat, whether it was Whitney back in the day, Staal prior to the trade, Fleury, Martin, etc.
