Take that for what it's worth. Pretty much nothing.
I'm not surprised that they would, they've pretty much grown up together and I'm sure they're all friends. They're rooting for him to get his act together. It's probably no disrespect to Vokoun at all. I think all but the most irrational Fleury hater would like to see him redeem himself if he's given another shot (and he will be, whether it's in the playoffs or next regular season).

To me that says two good things - DB isn't afraid to make unpopular decisions and the team hasn't given up on MAF.

Edit: I wouldn't go too crazy speculating that it'll cost Bylsma the room. Wanting Fleury to start and throwing a hissy fit and quitting on the coach over it are two very distant ends of the spectrum. Don't read too much into it, although I know that we're prone to do that around here.
