Fleury: I guess I get to hang out with Pens again for 'another shot' at Cup
The trade deadline has come and gone, and Marc-Andre Fleury remains a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, at least through the remainder of this season.
"It's been a little bit of a weird two weeks," Fleury said of trade speculation that surrounded him leading up to the deadline, per Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive. "A little bit stressful. I'm glad it's over and we're done with it."
Fleury added, "I guess I get to hang out with these guys again for a little while and have another shot at going far in the playoffs."
What happens beyond that remains well up in the air, as the Penguins are committed to Matt Murray as their starting goaltender, and with the expansion draft looming.
Fleury made 25 saves in a loss to Chicago on Wednesday, and will get a few starts down the stretch in order to rest Murray prior to the playoffs, but the Penguins will need to make a move and sort this situation out once their season is over.
In the meantime, another Stanley Cup ring could be added before his days in Pittsburgh are over.
