Well, in a season in which the Penguins have taken the league by storm, Fleury, just 22 years old now, is silencing any doubters one shooter at a time.
Fleury is melding his physical gifts with the mental focus required to play consistently at the top level. I saw him play as an 18-year old and I thought at the time that he had the quickest legs I’d ever seen. His lightning-quick reactions on pad saves while in his butterfly position were eye-catching. Yet, for all the acrobatics and scintillating saves, he had a tendency to over-commit, give up juicy rebounds and lose positioning for second shot situations.
