Penguins GM Jim Rutherford isn't in a hurry to re-sign Marc-Andre Fleury, but he still holds him in high regard.
"I think he's one of the most talented goalies in the league," Rutherford said. "From my point of view, he's our goalie. There's no reason why he can't be our goalie for a long time." Fleury can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2014-15 campaign. His agent, Allan Walsh, said he is on the same page as Rutherford and not having something worked out before the season starts is "of no consequence at all." Pittsburgh retained goaltender coach Mike Bales, who has been working hard to bring some consistency to Fleury's game, even though they cleaned house during the off-season. Fleury wants to remain loyal to the Pens as well and his preference is to be part of the organization for the "rest of his career." Aug 26 - 2:07 PM

Fox Sports Midwest's Andy Strickland reports that the New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins and Toronto Maple Leafs may all be active in the goalie FA market.

Strickland reports that the teams want to go for "1A/1B" situations, which could negatively impact the value of Marc-Andre Fleury, Jaroslav Halak and Jonathan Bernier respectively.

While the Penguins are optimistic of inking Marc-Andre Fleury to a new contract, it’s unlikely to happen this offseason.

Fleury is entering the last season of a deal that carries a $5 million cap hit. General manager Jim Rutherford is a fan of Fleury, though his busy offseason isn't likely to include an extension for him. The 29-year-old posted a 39-18-5 record with a 2.37 goals-against average and .915 save percentage last season, with an identical save percentage in the playoffs.

Marc-Andre Fleury has been inconsistent for the Pittsburgh Penguins but the team's new general manager likes him.

Jim Rutherford, who played goalie for the Penguins in the early 1970s, said he would have no qualms about going forward with Fleury, whose contract is entering its final year, as his go-to goaltender. "I think he's a very good goalie," Rutherford said. "He's coming off probably his best and most consistent year over the last four years, which to me is a very good sign that he's not tracking the other way, year after year."

Marc-Andre Fleury couldn't hold off the New York Rangers in a 2-1 Game 7 loss on home ice Tuesday night.

Fleury faced only 20 Rangers shots in the defeat, allowing two goals in the process. He can hardly be blamed for the Penguins departure from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but he'll have something to dwell on over the summer nonetheless.
May 13 - 9:53 PM

Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 of 29 shots but was beaten twice in the first 6:25 of the Pittsburgh Penguins' 3-1 playoff loss to the Rangers in New York Sunday night.

Martin St. Louis scored a goal off Fleury's leg, and Carl Hagelin beat Fleury with a floating backhand shot from the left circle. The loss means a seventh and deciding game will be played in the second-round series. It'll be in Pittsburgh Tuesday night. The Pens hope Fleury will have one of his strong nights rather than one of his shaky nights. Always tough to predict how Fleury will perform as he is rather inconsistent. In the post-season, Fleury is 9-7 with a GAA of 2.37 and a save percentage of .915.

In the Penguins' 5-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 5 Friday night, Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury "showed his first real kinks of the series," writes Pittsburgh Tribune-Review writer Dejan Kovacevic.

He adds: "Too many big rebounds and far too much air under the Ryan McDonagh floater for the fourth New York goal." Fleury was coming off his best stretch of the post-season, having shut out the Rangers twice. The Pens lead the best-of-seven series 3-2. Fleury is 7-4 in the postseason, with a .918 save percentage and a 2.37 GAA.

May 7 - 10:19 PM

To the surprise of no one, Marc-Andre Fleury has been named the Penguins' starter for Game 4 on Wednesday.

It will be his fourth start in six days, but he'll be playing against a Rangers team that's even more tired. Fleury shutout the Rangers in Games 2 and 3, which puts the pressure on New York to win tonight or come within one game of elimination.
May 7 - 2:26 PM

Craig Adams, who won the Stanley Cup with Marc-Andre Fleury in 2009, has never seen the Penguins goaltender play this good.

Fleury has had some rough patches in the playoffs, but he's also had some great performances and that gives the Penguins hope that this might be the year they reclaim the Cup.
May 6 - 10:43 AM

May 5 - 10:27 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury recorded his seventh career playoff shutout as he and the Penguins blanked the Rangers 3-0 in Game 2 on Sunday night.

Fleury made 22 saves, with his first shutout of this postseason. It was a complete game for the Penguins in all areas, so Fleury really wasn't called upon to make many big saves. A lot of the Rangers' shots came from the outside, with limited traffic in front. Fleury has a 2.49 goals-against average and .914 save percentage in the playoffs. The series is tied 1-1, with Game 3 on Monday night.
May 4 - 10:39 PM
