    Fleury is something special. Totally carried Canada on his shoulders during the WJC. He's the best goalie since Brodeur plain and simple. He's not going to be the next Blackburn because he's simply 10 times the goalie Dan will ever be. He's flawless, his confidence is unshakable and hes havin fun doing it.
    Watch him dominate games like uve never seen a goalie do it before. He's gonna represent us in all international competitions (WC and Olympics). Mark my words HES THE NEXT ONE!!

    Just a question, but if I say he sucks, and he's the next Corey Hirsh, who should people listen to?

    Fact is, both of us don't really have a lot backing our claim, and our opinions should be taken with less than a grain of salt.

    He`s only played 1 NHL game, give him a little more time before saying he`s the best goalie since Brodeur. :rolleyes:

    He can say what he wants cuz its his own opinion :) ,but i back his statement. Fleury is the real deal. Blackburn was used as an 18 year old back up, Fleury will be the starter if the Pens don't send him down. That's the BIGGEST difference with how Pittsburgh is handling the situation and with how NYR handled Blackburn.

    The only drawback with the way Blackburn was handled is he never developed endurance and played long enough over time to develop consistency. Other then that he was fine.

    It's good Fleury is getting 50% of the games, he shouldn't have the problems Blackburn has now.

    Looking at his first game, it seems like he's the real deal.
    This guy has good reflexes and ever quicker movements. That said, its only his first game, and I'd probably like to see him play at least 30 or so games before I make a judgement.

    I just hope that the first game was, if nothing else, a glimpse of things to come. Maybe 3-4 years down the road he can perform like that almost every night.

    But plenty of talented athletes have imploded before their 21st birthdays, so I'm not about to proclaim Fleury the next one.

    Caron will start against Montreal on Thursday, so Fleury will most likely play again Saturday against Detroit. Should be a hard test for him.

    Would you all still hold that opinion if Fleury gives up six against the Wings this week?

    What are you talking about, Fluery is god. The guy is the best young player of all time and will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever tank. Ever. It is impossible and you will burn in H E double hockey sticks for even thinking that it is possible that he may only be very good and not the greatest young player of all time.

    Shame on you and all who have ever known you.

    I think you fail to realize that most folks are grounded in reality. And that tongue-in-cheek routine is old.

    Whew. I am glad you changed your mind. I had already rallied the "letsgopens" faithful" and loaded them all on the "Fluery is god" bandwaggon and we were all on our way to your house to give you a good whatfor going over. Now, never forget how he is god and all will be fine. All hail Fluery, the greatest of the great.

    Oh, just real quick, can someone tell me how many games he has won so far and what his GAA is? I don't have time to go and look them up right now. In fact, nevermind, I am sure that he is 3 and 0 and his gaa is something like -one billion or something along those lines. What the heck, go ahead and give em to me. It will be good for a laugh.

    IGM, it has just come to my attention that you may in fact be a jackass. Is this true?

    This level of intense sarcasm is just plain sad. I would have thought we were passed that...the horse is still dead.

    Well, he still has a chance to repent his sins against #29.

    This is going to get worse and not better. Let's try to not proclaim 'next ones' out of the fear of IGM. :)
