Fleury For NHL MVP
"Where would the Penguins be without (Fleury) this season, given their massive injuries to key players? … There is no question that he has been dynamite since and the major reason the Penguins have been able to survive the losses of Crosby and Evgeni Malkin." - Pierre LeBrun, ESPN.
"Without the consistent scoring of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, Fleury has been the backbone of the Penguins success this season. … The hockey world needs to recognize Fleury, and what he means to the Penguins, by voting for him as the Vezina Trophy winner or NHL MVP." - Justin Glock, The Hockey Writers.
"You can make an argument for (Fleury) because it is the player most valuable to his team. He hasn't had to share the load with any other star during his stint here. He's been the guy. You can make a strong case that he deserves it." - Mike Emrick, Hall of Fame Broadcaster.
"The way he's tending goal, it's not hard to picture him leading the Penguins to a Stanley Cup. With the great Crosby, certainly. But maybe even without him. … It's hard to imagine any player more valuable to his team than No. 29." - Ron Cook, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"Fleury is the NHL's best goalie and Most Valuable Player. … Fleury has maintained his knack for big saves in big game situations while adding a big dollop of consistency." - Mark Madden, Beaver County Times.
"Fleury deserves to be in the discussion for the Hart Memorial Trophy, which is presented annually to the 'player adjudged most valuable to his team.'" It almost seems like they had Fleury's 2010-11 performance in mind when writing that description." - Bob Smizik, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
