As for the Fleury situation, all I can say here is WOW.
I remember the Fleury situation - I kept wondering why they refused to keep him up here, even though he clearly was the best goalie we had even then, and then it came out that it was due to money. The Pens' brass at the time tried like hell to out penny-pinch the Nuttings, but unlike Dumb and Dumber, they at least had an excuse for not spending gobs of money. Still though, Fleury should have been the #1 guy back then - I think it only would have helped his development.
