Marc-Andre Fleury Unveils His Trade Plans In French Interview

Published February 15, 2024 at 1:08 PM

The Minnesota Wild find themselves in a challenging position this season with serious playoff aspirations. However, things haven't unfolded as expected, leading to tough decisions as the March 8th trade deadline approaches.

Marc-Andre Fleury Reveals Plans For Trade Deadline

One player consistently mentioned in trade rumors is Marc-Andre Fleury. The veteran goalie is on an expiring contract, and this season could potentially be his last in the NHL. It's likely the Wild will look to trade him before the deadline. Fleury himself addressed these rumors in a recent interview:

"Every year, when players' contracts come to an end, names of pending free agents always come up in the rumors to be on the move. For me, my team is Minnesota. We have such a good group of guys and great chemistry. I've been here for over two seasons. I'm not thinking about leaving or going somewhere else. I want to continue to fight with my team to try to make the postseason."

Wild Face Tough Decision With Future Hall Of Fame Goaltender

While Fleury expresses loyalty to Minnesota, the reality may differ. The Wild are unlikely to be in playoff contention by the trade deadline. Will Fleury maintain his stance then?

Despite showing signs of aging, Fleury has still delivered respectable performances this season, proving he's still got it at 38 years old. His crucial saves demonstrate his enduring skill.

Unreal save from Marc-Andre Fleury

Interest in Fleury will likely be high as the trade deadline approaches, particularly given the thin market for goaltenders. Whether the Wild decide to move him remains uncertain.
