Honorable Mention: Tom Barrasso and Ken Wreggett
While the selection of Marc-Andre Fleury as the best goaltender in Penguins history would have caused an uproar had this list been compiled last summer after another postseason flameout, Fleury's strong play this season and a little perspective make this an easier selection.
While many will point to the fact that Fleury has only one Stanley Cup on his resume, he is the franchise leader in games played, wins and shutouts and his .910 save percentage is the highest for any Pens' goaltender who stuck around for more than just one season in Pittsburgh.
In addition, Fleury has been hampered, at times, by substandard defensemen in front of him and the lack of a quality backup behind him, especially during his early years with the Pens.
As a result, Fleury has had to, at times, stand on his head in net and carry more of the burden than he should have which could led to fatigue late in the season and may be partly to blame for his erratic performances in the playoffs.
Despite his recent postseason struggles and numerous detractors, Fleury's accomplishments have earned him both the top spot in the Pens' record books for goaltenders and a spot on this list as the top goaltender in franchise history.
