The Pittsburgh Penguins aren't likely to trade Marc-Andre Fleury.
While Fleury isn't expected to be part of the Penguins' long-term future anymore, Penguins GM Jim Rutherford would rather have the goaltending depth going into the playoffs. "I'm going to say what I've said all along. I'd prefer to keep him," Rutherford said. "We play a lot of games in March. You don't know when players are going to get hurt. He's handled the situation very well. I'm going to have some communication with him in between now and the [deadline] and see exactly where he sits and how he feels. That will play a part in the final decision. But I'm not going to get too far ahead of myself because he very well could be a part of our team going down the stretch." This situation will likely be dealt with in the summer as the Penguins will want to protect Matt Murray in the expansion draft and they don't have the option of protecting both goaltenders.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 44 of 47 shots in Thursday's 4-3 OT win over the Winnipeg Jets.

The Penguins went into the third period with a 2-1 lead, but they found themselves trailing 3-2 less than nine minutes into the frame. Phil Kessel tied the game with a power play goal before Sidney Crosby scored the game-winner in OT. Fleury now has a 15-7-5 record with a 3.16 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season.

The Penguins have tabbed Marc-Andre Fleury to defend the crease against the Jets on Thursday.

Fleury has performed much better at home so far this season. He's 11-2-1 through 15 games along with .924 save percentage and a 2.60 GAA. Far and away his best metrics in any situation.
Feb 16 - 1:46 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins could buy out the contract of Marc-Andre Fleury at the end of the season.

Fleury has a no-movement clause and while each NHL team can protect one goaltender in the expansion draft, there is no way the "Penguins are going to expose Matt Murray as he is their goalie of the present and future. The Pens may want to trade Fleury to get something for him but if they cannot, they could keep him for the playoff run and buy out his last couple of seasons of his contract, allowing Pittsburgh to protect Murray. Stay tuned.

Marc-Andre Fleury recorded his third loss in four games after missing four shots in the 4-3 defeat by the Coyotes Saturday night.

Fleury is starting to shake players’ confidence somewhat but it is not time to completely bail on the Penguins’ netminder. Before his current rough patch, he had five consecutive wins in which he had a save percentage of .941.

Marc-Andre Fleury will guard Pittsburgh's crease in Arizona on Saturday.

Fleury has dominated Arizona in his career through 10 games. He's posted a 5-4 record with a 17 goals and a .938 save percentage.

Where there's smoke, there's at least something very warm about.

The Stars and the Penguins have had "preliminary" talks about a deal that would send Marc-Andre Fleury to the Lone Star state. As Pierre LeBrun stressed the operative word is "preliminary" because "I don’t think there’s anything there at this point." So take it all with a grain of salt. Surely at least one of Antti Niemi ($4.5M cap hit) or Kari Lehtonen ($5.9M) will have to go, but they have one season remaining on their deals, unlike Fleury ($5.75M) who has two. If it's Lehtonen, the Penguins will have to offload some cash to make room. The Stars if they offload Niemi. We shall see what happens, but it appears things are going to get interesting quickly.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 22 pucks and let one get past him as the Penguins defeated the Blues 4-1 Saturday night.

Fleury beat the Blues with a save percentage of .957 and that is his fourth-best game of the season. Notably, two of the games in which he had a better percentage, he lost in overtime. This snapped a two-game losing streak for Fleury.
Feb 5 - 2:10 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury will guard Pittsburgh's crease in St. Louis on Saturday.

Fleury has not fared well at all on the road nor against Western foes. He's 2-5-3 in 12 games with 43 goals against away from Pittsburgh, and is 3-3-2 with 27 goals against Western foes. Suffice it to say, we'd find a more favorable matchup.
Feb 4 - 3:00 PM

While Penguins GM Jim Rutherford would still prefer to keep Marc-Andre Fleury for the remainder of the 2016-17 campaign and into the playoffs, he would listen to a trade request if one comes.

At this point Fleury seems to be stuck in the backup role and with the expansion draft coming, the Penguins might eventually have their hand forced. However, Rutherford would rather go into the playoffs with depth in the goaltending position all the same. One thing that might change his mind is if Fleury feels that he doesn't want to be a backup anymore and approaches the general manager in the hopes of getting a fresh start elsewhere. "The one thing I'll have to watch for and keep the lines of communication open with the player is, is he OK with the situation that he's in?" Rutherford said. "Going back to last year and to this point in time, he has handled it like a true pro. No issues at all. It may play out that we may be able to go right through having two top goalies on our team."

With his future uncertain, Marc-Andre Fleury is just taking things one day at a time.

The Penguins last called on Fleury on Jan. 14. He might not have to wait much longer for his next start, but it also remains to be seen how much longer he'll be with the Penguins. Nothing is set in stone, but with the expansion draft looming and Matt Murray presumably being the goaltender the Penguins will protect, Pittsburgh is in a situation where it wouldn't be surprising to see Fleury traded. "I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know if anything will happen," Fleury said. "I'll just try to enjoy my days here and be ready when I have a chance to play. There's still a lot of hockey to play before that deadline. I guess we'll see."
Jan 31 - 4:46 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury gave up six goals on 34 shots Saturday night as the Penguins lost 6-3 to the Red Wings.

It is not time to panic yet, but Fleury now has back-to-back losses with save percentages in the .800s. His last two GAAs were also unimpressive with a 4.09 against the Capitals Wednesday night and his 6.04 against the Wings.
Jan 15 - 12:32 AM

With Marc-Andre Fleury warming up in the starter's net, it looks like he'll get the nod against Detroit on Saturday.

Believe it or not, the veteran netminder has played pretty well over his last 10 games. He's posted a 6-1-1 record with a 22 goals against and a .915 save percentage. Fleury also beat the Red Wings earlier in the season with 28 of 31 stops made.
Jan 14 - 11:52 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury could get the start Saturday night against Detroit.

The Penguins have not formally indicated if Fleury or Matt Murray, who is now healthy again, will get the call against the Red Wings. Fleury is coming off a 5-2 loss to the Capitals and Murray is coming off a 4-1 loss to the Senators. Hard to know which way the Pens will turn.
Jan 14 - 11:03 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed four goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Fleury had the "honor" of allowing a milestone goal to Caps forward Alex Ovechkin, who hit the 1,000-point mark tonight. The Penguins goalie has a 13-6-4 record with a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage. His workload should start to come down now that Matt Murray is healthy enough to play.
