If the Pens traded their entire roster for the entire Flyers roster, I'd go buy a Simmonds Pens jersey and buckle in.

Why should they not care? They're long time friends, they spend time together outside of hockey (most of the long-time Pens do). There's absolutely nothing wrong with Malkin talking about him being an amazing guy (note: he doesn't say amazing teammate or amazing goalie).

and that tweet doesn't show what question he was asked, but I'm sure Malkin doesn't walk around giving quotes about Fleury being a great guy

Probably, but fleury the person seems to be a go to. The fixation on Fleury the person got uncomfortable awhile ago. One part avoidance and one part condescending, and it's manipulative.

Video of Geno's presser is here if you'd like to watch. I originally posted it in the series thread, but it seems relevant here, too. He's asked about Flower, he mentions Murray, too.

In any event that MAF carries us to another cup will management change their stance here? Especially since yinzer nation is going to throw a fit if MAF is dealt after a championship.

Because they should want the best goalie in net, not the best guy, and I'm not entirely sure that people can tell the difference.

And having the narrative shoved down our throat by the media is tiring. (I know none of this is his fault, but that doesn't make it any more tolerable).

did anyone with the team say that they want Fleury in over Murray? Geno didn't say Fleury should be in net because he's a great guy, he just said he's a great guy. What do you want him to say? "Yeah, he's a good dude, but man it sucks that he has to play."

I believe they asked Geno about Fleurys performance and what it meant to the team to see him play well. Geno went on a long ramble that said it was a tough year for Fleury personally and then that quote. He also said we love Murray and hope he gets back soon.

Oh. But I was sure Geno spent his days off walking round Pittsburgh going up to people and going "Fleury! Great guy! Phil Kessel! Defensive rock!"

Way to spoil things with reality

Sounds like Geno trying to be a good friend, IMO. "Been a hard 13 months, happy for the guy" kind of statement.

Seems that way to me as well. But people will read and see what they want, even when it's nothing.

Totally right, I don't know how he survived such brutal hardships. Masterton!

Why do people post hypotheticals about impossible events like this?

the fact that the word "another" is in there is enough to know that it's not impossible. I wouldn't expect it, but it's certainly not impossible to win with Fleury.

Let me rephrase, "if the Pens win in spite of Fleury in net"

But the 2nd half of my post was more about what I was trying to get at.

How will he be remembered once he's gone to a new team?

Delusionally well by yinzers. If he was in somewhere like Toronto he'd probably be despised years ago and that would carry on.

Who the hell knows what the board will do.
