The Turco thread made me check the Save percentage and goalie stats. I had no idea Fleury's save percentage is that bad.
I know the guy has talent, but you'd think on a team like that a talented goalie would have acceptable stats,but his stats are crap and he, along with Quick are the only Goalies who still didn't register a shutout in the entire league.
The W's are there and that's all that matters, but I still remember a lot of people ripping Wings Fans for defending Osgood for not having the best stats.
I understand your point and yes Fleury isn't playing amazingly but I don't think you can use the shutout card to judge a goaltender. It's really more of a team effort than a simple "amazing night".
I wasn't judging him or Quick for that matter because of the lack of shut out, it was just an observation. You'd think a talented goalie like Fleury would get the odd shut out after half the season.
By the way, sometimes a shutout is just the result of an amazing night.
its all about the playoffs, and his past 2 playoff performances, are why he is good, regular season means nothing to teams that are perennial playoff teams imo, if you're gonna make it regardless who cares how your goaltender is playing as long as he shows up in the playoffs
