Theo Happy In Belfast

My personal thoughts on Fleury is he wants another shot at the NHL. The new NHL would favor a player like Theo, but would a team agree to sign him? from George Johnson of ESPN,
Admittedly, Theo Fleury didn't know much about Belfast, Northern Ireland, before he arrived. "I knew the Titanic was built there,'' he said, "but I wasn't really worried since I was flying over and not taking a boat.'' He's certainly hit a few icebergs along the way, and at times seemed in peril of being sucked underneath the surface of the water by an icy current, never to be seen again. But move over Molly Brown, he's still afloat, still the Unsinkable Theo Fleury. "It's good. Everything's good,'' he said from his new house, still full of unpacked boxes, in Belfast. "Not so different from home. Except the TV. There is no TV. Not unless you're mesmerized by watching Tony Blair give speeches.''
