First, let’s look at how Marc-Andre Fleury was better in Pittsburgh. Steel City was appreciative of his talents, especially when it came to bringing home three Stanley Cups.
But that was because the Penguins had better teams than the Golden Knights ever had during Fleury’s Vegas tenure. Any group with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Kris Letang has the potential to bring home the Stanley Cup every season.
Still, it’s not to say that “The Flower” didn’t have his high points. He did lead the NHL in shutouts in 2014-2015, posting 10 in a single season. He had 44 total shutouts during his 13-year tenure, making him the franchise leader. The second-best? Tom Barrasso, who only had half the shutouts Fleury had.
Plus, he played in the same conference as Steven Stamkos and Alex Ovechkin during his Penguin tenure. A mere mortal would’ve collapsed at the sight of seeing these two in action. Not Marc-Andre Fleury, who came in with a cool head to save the day.
