Default Re: Crosby's Push for 100 Points

Marc Andre Fleury. Yeah, he's still here. The Penguins are going to be sending him down to WBS/Scranton Baby Pens in order to play in their playoffs.

He's not coming along as much as we would like. His biggest problem is that he doesn't make the big/key saves when we need them. Has also has problems controlling his rebounds. Also keep in mind that our defense has sucked for 3/4 of this season. He still needs to get better. At times he makes unbelievable saves and shows signs of being a very, very good goalie. Overall, he's still a work in progress who I feel will get better over time and with a better defense.

It is my opinion that you never draft a goalie with the second pick overall in the draft. We could have had Eric Staal (Carolina Hurricanes) instead of Fleury at this point in time. While I would agree that you build a team around your goaltender, you don't take him with the second overall pick and passing up on a player like Eric Staal.
