Notice the name on the sword.

It does appear Fleury is now the #2 goalie in the playoffs.

He is also a UFA at the end of the season.

Paul, where do you see him listed as UFA at the end of the season?  Capfriendly shows him with two more years on his contract after this season.

My mistake MikeO.  CapFriendly loading real slow for me and I should have let it complete.

Two years left at $7M per.

Thanks for correcting this.

Happy to help.  I was only aware of it because I have a pipe dream of the Wings signing Lehner, since Vegas doesn’t have room to resign him unless the are able to move Fleury. I don’t see anyone wanting to trade for a 37 year old goalie making $7m per for 2 more years, so I assume Lehner hits the UFA market.  I know the chances of him signing with the Wings are minuscule, but we all need to dream a dream, and that is mine.

We could trade for Fleury, make them eat some cap hit, and get a draft pick or two. We need at least a placeholder goaltender to tandem with Benier. I’ve always liked MAF, even when I hated him.

Not a complaint, and I may be the only person who experiences this (and not just here), but Twitter links don’t work for me. Probably my fault, bkz I have my browser tweaked 12 ways from Sunday, and I don’t expect anyone to jump thru hoops to accommodate me, just wanted to put it out there.

Hmmm Sreeb, not sure what the issue would be,  Maybe copying and pasting the link would work.

This is what Friedman wrote…

According to several sources: the Golden Knights met with Marc-Andre Fleury this afternoon and are satisfied this will not be an issue as they chase the Stanley Cup. I’d expect Fleury to address this with media tomorrow.

I don’t have a Twitter acct, so that may be part of it.. Copy/paste worked this time, so I’ll keep that in mind.

Thanks for that, Paul!

This is kind of the same thing when Babblecock benched Dom for Ozzie in the ‘08 WCQF against the Preds.

MAF just spoke with the media which I watched.

Basically saying Walsh was just trying to protect him and asked the tweet be taken down today.

Wants to move on and did not say if he knew about the tweet before it went up even though he was asked about it twice today.
