Fleury has some crazy skills and didn't look out of place at all when the season began, but having him play all those games as an 18yo in front of an AHL caliber team is dumb. Fleury has a cool head but is IMO breaking down slowly but surely. This isn't a way to ease in a kid in the NHL, no matter his talent. I could see him as a backup to an experienced starting goalie in a good team but Pittsburgh is so pathetic to watch I can easily understand how this season could become a serious step back in Fleury's developement. Get him out of there for his sake. I know he's about the only thing that can still somewhat attract a few fans but this is going to hurt him (and therefore the long term future of this team) more than anything else IMO.
