2 things:

1) The Pens are on the hook with this guy for 2 more years at 5 mil cap hit per and 11.5 mil total owed. What do you do if you're the Pittsburgh GM?

2) If you are Ken Holland, are you interested in Fleury as a back-up to Howard if Pittsbugh decides to buy him out? At what price?

I think he'll get a chance somewhere at a starters salary.  Also with how good Howard is playing and the new contract I don't think it would be fair or smart to put Howard in that situation.  Could end up with another Luongo Schnieder situation.

Normally I'd say the Pens would hang on to him. However, they'll need to dump salary before next season I believe. Tough call.

As far as the Wings go, Jimmy's a work-horse. Play him as much as you can next year, and hope Monster is healthy and capable of playing a few games. Then bring Mrazek up for 14-15.

Maybe a stupid question, but why would they buy him out? He'll make about the same money as Jimmy Howard next season.

 

He had a good regular season and is part of their core. Vokoun will be 37 by the time next season begins. I doubt the Pens have soured on Fleury, despite the fact that Vokoun is playing right now.

Seems like Pittsburgh has little confidence in him right now.

Eerily similar situation to 2008.  Remember when Hasek started to s*** the bed during the 1st round vs Nashville that year?  Put in Osgood, railed our way to the cup.

I don't think Pittsburgh is giving up on fluery... They are riding Vokoun because he is the hot goalie. Fluery will be their main horse once again when Vokoun stumbles theses playoffs... (Against Boston, I have a lot of faith in them beating Pitt) then fluery will get the net back.

2) If you are Ken Holland, are you interested in Fleury as a back-up to Howard if Pittsbugh decides to buy him out? At what price?

 

1.  I think it's hilarious.  f*** the Pens.

 

2.  Absolutely not.  You don't cut Howard off at the knees like that and Holland needs to use his cap space wisely to restock the defense.


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

1) I buy him out.

 

2) Nope. He's mentally fragile, and his presence might cause unwanted tension.

I agree. I think he's a liability.

I'm glad that a bench warmer is taking up $5 mill cap on their roster.  God know who the hell else they can convince to join them if they had that cap space ... 

 

No to OP's idea ... although I think the Monster is actually terrible ... even as a backup.  His stats are horrible and whenever he starts, I count it a loss ... once in a blue moon, he surprises me but just terribly inconsistent.

You are amazing, you've been on Mrazek's jock all year and now you talk about bringing in Fleury as a back up ? Make up your mind dude.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

The only thing worse than not having a capable backup goaltender is paying too much for a capable backup goaltender.
