Marc-Andre Fleury is the best goalie/teammate I have ever played with. A lot of people would agree. Treats everyone like gold. It’s crazy how he gets treated in the hockey world. #1stballlot
While Marc-Andre Fleury still hasn’t heard from anybody with the Vegas Golden Knights, he has apparently been traded to Chicago. Marc-Andre will be taking time to discuss his situation with his family and seriously evaluate his hockey future at this time.
This organization, this city and this fanbase will forever be grateful to Marc-Andre Fleury for the impact he’s made on and off the ice in just four years. We wish Marc-Andre and his family the best in this new chapter of their lives. #VegasBorn 🌸
A source close to Marc-Andre Fleury says that the trade is done, and that the Vezina Trophy winner found out through Twitter.
Hard to think of an NHL player more universally beloved yet more repeatedly disrespected than Marc-Andre Fleury. Inversely proportional
And you thought Aaron Rodgers had a reason to complain. No future Hall of Famer has been more disrespected and under appreciated by team management than Marc Andre Fleury. #Fleury
Statement from Marc-Andre Fleury:
The Blackhawks acquired Marc-Andre Fleury, Tyler Johnson and a second-round pick today for... nothing. Absolutely nothing. Literally nothing.
1. Fleury was the best goaltender in Vegas.
2. He won the Vezina.
3. They traded him for no return.
4. I hope he shuts them out every time he plays them for the rest of his Hall of Fame career.
Marc-Andre Fleury on the Chicago Blackhawks
Just chiming in on the Fleury trade…if it’s so, it just isn’t right that he wouldn’t have had advance notice before this hit social media…he deserves better than this
Marc-Andre Fleury finished top-5 in Vezina voting in three of his four seasons with Vegas. He gave that team relevancy. Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
Statement from Marc-Andre Fleury:
RT if you’d do this deal:
Marc Andre Fleury (Salary 50% retained)
Mid-round pick or two
If the #Penguins find a way to give Marc-Andre Fleury one last ride..
While the #Steelers are on their last ride with Big Ben..
The city of Pittsburgh may literally burn to the ground.
i can’t wait for fleury to refuse to report to chicago & they can ship him back to pittsburgh
McCrimmon confirms that the player VGK acquired for Fleury will not come to Vegas. His contract is now owned by VGK but he will likely play in the AHL for Rockford.
Thus confirming, they literally traded the Vezina-winning goalie... for nothing.
Marc Andre Fleury to the Chicago Blackhawks for absolutely nothing. It’s a very sad day for Vegas Golden Knights fans. 😞 #VegasBorn
VGK GM Kelly McCrimmon says that Mikael Hakkarainen, who was acquired for Vezina Trophy winner Marc-Andre Fleury, will continue to play in Chicago's organization despite the @GoldenKnights
owning his contract.
Even if trading Fleury is the smart move, it feels a bit like putting down your dog because you want to get a puppy.
was one of the first people to speak to Marc-Andre Fleury after news broke of his trade to Chicago.
He explains their conversation on #NHLTonight.
Kelly McCrimmon: Conversations with Fleury began at exit meetings June 29. Said they weren't sure what they would do next season...told Fleury he wanted him to be fully aware of any discussions...and that if Fleury heard anything, he was free to call McCrimmon...
Marc Andre Fleury is more than a goalie, he's the embodiment of what the Golden Knights mean to Las Vegas. Trading him feels disrespectful, not only to the donut king, but to our community.
I haven’t seen people in Vegas this upset since Tarkanian left UNLV. And that was 1992.
better have something up their sleeve. #Fleury #NotaTrade
Robert Lehner reveals he was attacked online for his mental illness following Fleury trade. MORE: https://t.co/O7I9ge0pLb
The man singlehandedly put Vegas on the map.
Won us games that not many other goaltenders would’ve won us.
Marc-Andre Fleury deserves better.
Thank you for everything 🌸
Terrible that Marc-Andre Fleury found out about his trade via twitter... The guy has been a fixture in the Las Vegas community, played his ass off and repped that city the fullest. Deserved better. #VGK https://t.co/xQE1pW11lY
