How confident are you in Fleury?

How are you all feeling about Fleury's ability to deliver the team to the promised land. I know he's won a cup before, but I can't help but feel nervous about his consistency. I think the upgrades amongst skaters has just amplified this feeling for me. Am I being paranoid?

100000% confident assuming the injury didn't screw him up. He's been one of the best goalies in the league this month. He just has to, as Cole keeps saying, keep it simple.

If the D plays well in front of him... very. If they don't... ehh.

Both of these. More often than not when Fleury struggles it's because the D turns into a bunch of turnstiles.

this. Fleury has looked solid this year, more confident, less spewy

that's all we need from him.

If the defense plays well in front him all the confidence in the world. If not, not so much. He's not giong to win a series on his own, let's put it that way.

I'm more confident knowing Vokoun is there to calm him down, push his game, and give him a night off now and then.

he has cost this team so many games the past couple of post seasons. He is an average goaltender playing on a great team.

His numbers in the post season are pathetic (yes even including his cup win)

He lets in too many softies, his mental toughness just not there.

I know he has a lot of wins this year, but when it counts i have no faith in him.

Fleury’s had a .923 save percentage since February 1st. Other than that 4 goal first period in Philly, he’s been really, really solid. What worries me the most is any issue he might have going forward from getting his bell rung. Consistency wise, he might not be great, but if he can keep that sv % above .910, the Pens have a chance.

100% confidence on MAF. I'm less confident that people can stay healthy though.

Pretty much this, don't think it's a surprise that he's playing the best hockey of his career in a season where he is playing much less often than in year's past and has a guy that can at least push him more than your normal joe backup goalie. MAF just may be the type of goalie that needs a lighter load, as his previous best season occurred in a year when he played much less than normal due to missing time with injury.

As long as the D doesn't go full *******, he should be good to go. When he's confident and comfortable back there, he's excellent and he's been and performed in the show before.

Extremely confident. Flower has his share of questionable moments, but for the most part, if the defense in front of him does their job, he'll be fine. More than fine, even.

Now we just need everyone to stay healthy.

he just needs to be average and not have a meltdown like last spring and i feel that's good enough to take us to the promised land. we dont need him to be in god mode, although i wouldnt be opposed to that either. we can score enough goals to win playoff games.

Pretty confident, honestly. The team has been playing well in front of him for the most part and he's responded extremely well when needed. Like Jacob mentioned... having TV around to push him and motivate him a little has helped a lot. Regardless of TV's rough patches.

Just in case, though... Cory Schneider for Harrison Ruopp, Bryan Rust and a conditional 4th round pick.

I'm confident if he can limit his off games to 4GA, we are in real good shape now as we'll probably still win 60% of those anyway.

Incredibly confident in Marc-Andre. He seems to take so much abuse on this board yet he leads the league in wins. I think he'll be just fine back there.

When he plays simple hockey and does not flop around - he's an elite goalie. The problem is when his athleticism takes over and he tries making big saves instead of the right saves. Not every save needs to be spectacular.

We have the kind of team that I am sure can calm Fleury down and relax him if things start to hit the fan. Leadership is really good right now.

Worst comes to worse Vokoun is playing well too so thats always an option. I think we could still win a cup with Vokoun.

To me the reak question was how confident am I in our defense, which includes our goalies. And the answer would have been not very. But nine goals allowed in nine games showed that they can play playoff defense. Adding a massive crease clearer in Murray also helped. So now I am very confident.

People always judge goalies in a vacuum. In reality their team effects their play as much as they do. I feel much better about this team ddefensively than I have all year.
