Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has had disappointing playoff performances two years in a row.
That's something that Shero cannot ignore during the offseason. After an embarrassing performance against the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2012 playoffs with a 4.63 goals against average and an .834 save percentage, Fleury struggled again this year in the postseason.
The Penguins' starting goaltender had a 2-2 record in his four starts for the Penguins before he was pulled in favor of Tomas Vokoun. Fleury had a 3.52 GAA and an .883 save percentage in this year's playoffs.
When he finally returned to action in Game 2 against the Boston Bruins as Vokoun's relief, he looked shaky and unsure as he faced 17 shots and gave up three goals.
Fleury was solid during the regular season—he had a 23-8-0 record, 2.39 GAA and a .916 save percentage—but he has lacked dependability in two consecutive postseasons.
How can the Penguins remain confident in Fleury? He may have made key save after key save in their 2009 Stanley Cup championship, but he appears to have lost his magic.
Trading Fleury and his $5 million salary may be quite difficult for Shero, if the general manager chooses to go that route.
