Why He Should Win
Marc-Andre Fleury had a rough start to the season, but since the ninth game, he's been absolutely phenomenal. Fleury places third in the league in GAA and SP since then and he has carried the Pittsburgh Penguins through a ridiculous rash of injuries to Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Mark Letestu (twice), Chris Kunitz, Jordan Staal, Brooks Orpik and several others. Even after 35 games without Crosby, Fleury has the Penguins just four points behind the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia Flyers.
Why He Shouldn't Win
In all likelihood, Fleury's terrible start to the season will probably cost him a Vezina Trophy nomination. Fleury went 1-6, got pulled once and even temporarily lost his starting job to backup Brent Johnson before rebounding with a 14-game unbeaten streak. Still, Fleury's stats are a bit lower than the top few candidates, and that will hurt his case.
