Could Fleury go to St. Louis?
“I believe what Jim Rutherford, the general manager of the Penguins, though is hoping for is that the bubble teams in terms of the playoffs start to separate a little bit and maybe there’s a hint of desperation.
“I look at a team like St. Louis, as an example. It appears they’ve made their bed with Jake Allen, but if the St. Louis Blues believe they’re on the cusp or right there among the contenders and goaltending might be somewhat iffy or in question – look, Marc-Andre Fleury is a goaltender who has proven that he can take that team to another level.”
Allen’s four-year, $17.4 million contract extension with the Blues kicks in next season.
Fleury will still have another two years left on his contract once this season ends. His cap hit is $5.75 million.
