Pittsburgh Penguins: Comparing Marc-Andre Fleury and Tom Barrasso

Marc-Andre Fleury is the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise netminder, and has been for the last several seasons. In that time, he has struggled and had some question his performance, but in the last few years, he has improved to become arguably one of the NHL's beest goalies.

Tom Barrasso spent several years in Pittsburgh in the late 1980s and 1990s. He helped the Penguins win two Stanley Cups and solidified his place in Pens history even though he played for other organizations during his career. He is also one of the top U.S. goalies to ever play the game. 

With Fleury in the middle of a strong season which saw him tie Barrasso's franchise record for career shutouts, I decided to compare the two goalies and see if there was a clear-cut answer to who is the better goalie. Although Fleury is still playing, he has accomplished a lot that can be used to see how he measures up to Barrasso.

My case will be made using these categories:

Drafting and development

Regular season play

Postseason play

Awards and records

International play
