This also goes both ways. People defending Fleury act like the Pens are the only team in the NHL that allows more than a couple quality scoring chances a game, or the only team that turns over the puck resulting in multiple odd-man rushes per game.

This inevitably leaves to this fallacy that goalies simply can't put up good numbers in the Pens' system. Vokoun's proving that's not the case, and frankly, when Fleury is actually playing well, he proves is not the case. It's only when Fleury is erratic that his numbers suffer, and suddenly our team defense is a death sentence for goalie stats.
