First off, congrats to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for overcoming a 3-0 series deficit and coming back to win the series. That's unbelievable!

Apparently Brad Thiessen is having himself one hell of a postseason. This is from a Puck Daddy article:

Quote
Games 1 and 2 were dominated by the Bruins, with 8-5 and 4-2 victories. They took Game 3 in overtime 2-1, but beginning with Game 4, it was Brad Thiessen time. The Penguins netminder took control and slowed the Bruins’ offense over the next three games making 31, 30 and 46 saves, respectively, forcing a seventh and deciding game, even after getting jumped by Graham Mink in Game 5 during a brawl.
Thiessen's shutout in Game 7 improved his already ridiculous stats. He leads all goaltenders with a 0.89 goals against average and a .970 save-percentage; he's also stopped 196 of 202 shots he's faced in seven starts. So, yeah, Thiessen's in some sort of zone right now.


I admit I know very little about this guy, but any chances he's ready sooner rather than later to move up to the bigs? If this guy can play, and we could get MAF off the books I'd sure feel a hell of a lot better about resigning Letang and Geno after next season. Does anyone else feel like Fleury has played himself out of Pittsburgh?

It may be that Fleury is done, but Thiessen is no, not the answer.

I agree with this, but I would still amnesty Fluery after the season. We have Vokoun for another year and hey can easily bring in another vet that can split time with Vokoun and at least equal but probably best Fluery's average Save % and GAA and not cost 5 million per. Fluery is simply average or below average in every statistical category that matters an that 5 million could be put to better use extending the core players who, you know, actually perform.
