Are the Leafs interested in Fleury? Or….the Blackhawks?
With $5 or $6 million left on the table from the fruitless Curtis Joseph negotiations, the Maple Leafs could probably sign Fluery, plunk him on the first line with Mats Sundin and wait for the explosion, good or bad.
“We have talked to his agent,” Leaf executive Bill Watters said. “I don’t want to make it seem like we’re disinterested…”
It falls to someone else to give Theo Fleury a chance. No one knows whether he will make his life work, least of all Fleury, but there is hope. There’s always hope for the Theo Fleurys.
Which team do you think Fleury will or should go to?Theo Fleury To Become A Black Hawk???
According to a Quebec radio station, the Chicago BlackHawks would be closer than any other team in the ”Theo Fleury Derby”…
I didn’t look over on the internet if any other site were talking about this but it comes from the same radio station that had the scoop on Patrick Roy’s not going to the olympics last year so it becomes an interresting story.
My question is: Are the Blackhawks believing they can fill the spot left by the departure of Tony Amonte by adding Sergei Berezin and Theo Fleury into their lineup??
I don’t think any of these 2 guys can fill the leadership Amonte’s was bringing to the table but they would become (in my humble opinion) a legitimate playoff contender. (see, i did not say ”CUP contender”, just PLAYOFFS which means they could make the playoffs again this year)
