Fleury has not looked good, but neither has the d. There is plenty of blame to go around. We're still winning though, which is nice.

I want him to coach like its 2010 and Sid and Geno are hurt. Only with Sid and Geno in the line-up.

I wonder if it's just coincidence that Fleury hasn't looked good since apparently being "very upset" about Vokoun being given the start in Montreal last week. Could that have messed with his head?

He has acquired guys you need to win in the playoffs (ex: Michalek), they don't work in Bylsma's system. If you're not a PMD, you don't work in Bylsma's system...

For this experiment....yup. Because if we score more, we will continue the same play....back and forth goals.

If it did, he doesn't belong in the NHL. I've always said he's a headcase and a fragile mess. Mashed potatoes for brains....so yeah, I wouldn't doubt if it did.

if THAT is what he's struggling over, he needs to remember how old he is and start acting that age instead of like a pouty little baby.

we did it for two periods against the Flyers. I know we can do it for a period or two. I want to see it for a full game sometime

and really, the PK really is the problem tonight. The 5 on 5 defense hasn't been bad
