Probably the next goalie for the hall of fame!

It's less to do with his Cup victories (which are a team accomplishment, I mean one couldn't say Marcel Dionne doesn't belong in the HOF because he has zero Cups).  That Vezina trophy win by MAF is a pretty powerful argument in his favor (along with the 500 wins).

Nothing to do with the Canucks and so I don't give a $&!# about him or his accomplishments.

Hence the reason it’s posted under general hockey discussions, as in discussions about other things and players in hockey not playing for the Canucks.

Yep it’s the complete package for a goalie to get in. I don’t think there are any in there without cups and a vezina.

So you leave the Canucks talk and come into general hockey talk, to act like a dingus when people talk about things other then the Canucks? Fleury is one of the all time greats of our sport and one of only 3 people to achieve this milestone. Seems worthy of a discussion under general hockey.

I had forgotten that we had a general hockey talk section on here and so when I saw this thread on the main board, I posted without considering the context.

 

I made a mistake.

That's fair. We already have one hardcore Canucks homer in Alf, just figured we didn't need a second.

His public persona is everything you want to cheer for in a athlete that plays for another team. Guys like this deserve to be put in the forefront of nhl publicity. Great athlete, great character. I cheer for him despite the teams he’s played for.
