from the Edmonton Journal via Canada.com, TSN commentator Pierre McGuire, who was sounded out by the Pens for a player personnel job several months back but turned it down, said on his radio show Friday that a Western team was talking to the Pens about the 21-year-old who has tons of ability but has been clearly outplayed by former Blackhawks goalie Jocelyn Thibault in camp.
Pens GM Ray Shero says Fleury isn't going anywhere and goalie coach Gilles Meloche says the same thing, but maybe a Western club like San Jose or Anaheim, each with two No. 1 goalies, is sniffing around.
Certainly, Fleury has lots of blemishes on his game. As acrobatic as he can be, flashing his glove or diving to make stops, he gives up too many rebounds.
Technically, he needs more than remedial work, but he was also thrown into the fire far too early (playing in the league at 18, then being jerked back and forth between the minors and the Penguins).
