    Default Fleury could be moved again

    So Marc-Andre Fleury's name appeared in Friedman's 32 Thoughts column briefly - talking about Blackhawks trade discussions generally. All he wrote is "At some point, there will have to be a Marc-Andre Fleury decision" https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article...ng-canucks-go/

    And I remember, I think it was on Friday, hearing Chris Johnston mentioning Edmonton as possibly looking at Fleury closer to the deadline.

    Fleury is on the last year of his deal (7m per) and the Blackhawks are near the bottom of the standings so I think this may be an inevitable trade, even with the big cap hit.

    Some thoughts
    - If I'm Fleury I want to be traded sooner rather than later so I can prove I can still play behind a solid D core to Team Canada
    - I'd also look at Lankinen as a bench stash in fantasy

    I think we do see a trade, but for above teams will be waiting to closer to trade deadline. Those type of teams are also likely the same teams right close to the cap, and thus would have to wait for Fluery's accrued cap hit to be higher (Or more salary retention by CHI which I doubt both sides would want to do)

    If it's to a non contender I see the deal happening earlier.

    I'd expect him to be dealt again. He's the kind of goalie who people will think will help a contending team get over the hump, but he's erratic enough night to night that I'd steer clear.

    The question to me is, how much more will Chicago get than they gave up? They should be able to get more, but how much more?

    Honestly, I don't think acquiring a goalie mid-season ever really works out. It's a big move mentally, and I don't know if a team really should be going out to acquire a goalie.

    Can I fault a team like Edmonton in acquiring a goalie though? I don't think I can, but that's really the only contending team that I would think it's a good move getting a goalie.
