Theo Fleury has gone on record to say Vancouver will bow out in the first round of the playoffs.
"I stand by what I said, the Vancouver Canucks will not make it out of the first round," Fleury told The Vancouver Sun. "Vancouver is going to get a very playoff-tested team, it could be Anaheim, it could be Chicago ... All I'm pointing out is most teams that finish first overall in the NHL have not gone on to have a whole lot of success." "The last few years, all everyone's talked about is Vancouver winning the Stanley Cup and they haven't, so why?" asked Fleury. "[Roberto] Luongo. I'm just saying what is in the back of every Canucks fan’s mind." Expect the Canucks to use this as motivation. Sat, Mar 26, 2011 10:53:00 AM

Theo Fleury has decided to press charges against former junior coach Graham James for allegedly sexually abusing him when he was a teenager.

"That decision has been made," said Fleury. "I've hired Hersh Wolch, who might be the best criminal attorney in North America." In Fleury's recent released autobiography, Playing With Fire, he claims that James starting sexually abusing him when he was just 14-years-old and it resulted in him turning to alcoholism, substance abuse and having gambling issues.

Theo Fleury is investigating the possibility of pressing charges against his former junior coach, Graham James.

Fleury claims in his recent autobiography that James sexually abused him when he was 16. "We're looking into it," Fleury said. "We have a group, a team of people in place, doing just that. We want to make sure we're protected in this and everything is in order. But I think there'll be something (to announce) soon." Fleury said he wasn't ready to pursue this option before, but he knew that once he wrote his autobiography, 'Playing With Fire', that legal action might be the next step. James was previously sentenced in 1997 to 42 months in prison after former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy and another junior hockey player accused him of sexual assault.

Theo Fleury has revealed in his book that he was sexually abused by his junior coach Graham James.

It had been rumored for years that James sexually abused Fleury 25 years ago when Fleury played junior hockey in Moose Jaw as a 16-year-old. Fleury is now the second player to say that James was sexually abusive. Sheldon Kennedy, a former Detroit Red Wing, played with Fleury in junior hockey and accused James of sexual abuse. James spent three-and-a-half years in prison as he was found guilty in the Kennedy case. Fleury's book "Playing with Fire" comes out next week.

Theo Fleury retired from the NHL.

Fleury attempted a comeback with the Flames after a six-year absence from hockey. He played very well in camp, but still couldn't crack their roster and was released on Friday. "I could not sign with another team. I retire a Calgary Flame," Fleury said in a news conference. The little big man was one of the best fantasy players during his prime. He ends his career with 455 goals, 1088 points and 1840 PIMs in 1084 games. We thank Theo for making the preseason anything but routine.

The Flames have released Theoren Fleury.

The 41-year-old captured the hearts of Flames fans this preseason with his comeback attempt, but it was not to be despite an impressive camp. He had to make the team as a top-six forward, according to coach Brent Sutter and he wasn't up to that level. He remains unsigned as he was in camp on a tryout. He will take a few days to evaluate his options before having a press conference scheduled for Monday. It's possible that he could officially announce his retirement, although we wouldn't be surprised if another team came knocking.

Theo Fleury is definitely on the bubble in Calgary.

Fleury took Thursday off for a maintenance day and the fear is that Fleury has shown everything he has, and at age 41, will not get any better. "He's certainly done a good job -- yet, there's a lot of good players here," coach Brent Sutter said. "And the pace of the game is gonna pick up 10-fold here starting next week, so let's just see what happens." It looks like a bit of a long shot for Fleury to crack the lineup next week. The good news is that he is prepared to play in the AHL if need be.

Theo Fleury had an assist on Wednesday as he attempts to make the Calgary lineup.

Fleury, 41, is trying to return to the NHL after a six year absence. "I thought he was fine," coach Brent Sutter said. "He played a smart game. I thought he played within the confines of our team play. Whatever happens, he's accomplished a lot." Fleury now has four points in four pre-season games. Fleury looked good again on a line with Curtis Glencross, who scored twice, and Jamie Lundmark. He will accept a demotion to the AHL if that is in the cards so stay tuned.

Theo Fleury is looking much more comfortable at Calgary's camp and it is showing on the ice.

"I'm starting to feel way more comfortable," Fleury said. "I think the rust is finally coming off, and I'm starting to play the way that I can play and the way that I knew I could play when I started this thing in February." His comeback bid is looking much more possible now than it did at the outset, but he still has to play his way onto the Flames' roster with his tryout contract. The 41-year-old notched a goal and a helper in Sunday's 5-2 win over Florida, while looking good on a line with Daymond Langkow and Curtis Glencross. The trio combined for eight points on the night. Stay tuned.

Theo Fleury helped his case for a Calgary roster spot with a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

He's trying to crack the line-up after a six-year absence from the NHL. He played just over 12 minutes in the game. Curtis Glencross enjoyed a four-point night. Olli Jokinen had a three-point effort. The Flames downed Florida 5-2.

Theo Fleury is still in the mix to make the Calgary Flames.

Fleury returned to the NHL this year after a six-year absence due to his suspension for substance abuse. The 41-year-old has now been alcohol free for four years. He scored the winning goal in a shootout on Thursday and while he will not be in the lineup on Saturday night, coach Brent Sutter wants to take another look at him. The Flames are giving him every opportunity to make the team as he is lining on the wing with Daymond Langkow and Nigel Dawes, two-thirds of the projected second line this season. While it is still a long-shot, Fleury does have a chance. Stay tuned but do not expect much in fantasy pools if he does make it.

Theo Fleury scored the shootout winner in his return to Calgary.

Fleury is in Calgary camp on a professional tryout and the 41-year-old received a hero's welcome from the partisan Flames crowd whenever he was on the ice. It has been six years since Fleury last played in the NHL. While Fleury played 10:56 in the game, he saved his best for last as he was the only shooter to score in the shootout. Fleury is a longshot to make the Flames but for one night he was a star again.

Theoren Fleury will officially mark his return to the NHL Thursday in a preseason game against the Islanders.

Fleury hasn't played in the NHL since 2002-03, but has battled back from alcoholism to be in phenomenal shape during the Flames training camp. The 41-year-old practiced on a line with Daymond Langkow and Nigel Dawes. It will be an emotional return, with the game being held in Calgary, where he played for 11 seasons early in his career. We wish him the best, but he is still a long shot to make the club out of camp.

Theo Fleury will probably play in his first preseason game on Thursday against the New York Islanders.

It will be Fleury's next big step in his attempt to return to the NHL. Fleury has not played since the 2002-03 season. It should be interesting to see how he does after such a long absence, but he will not have any fantasy value this season.
Wed, Sep 16, 2009 01:29:00 PM

Theo Fleury will not be in the Calgary lineup on Tuesday night in preseason action against Edmonton.

When asked when he might return to the ice, he said, "No indication at all. I think being out for so long, they want to ease me into this thing -- and I think it's probably wise. The more practices I get, the more comfortable I'll feel. When it comes around to having that opportunity to play, I'll be real comfortable at that point." The 41-year-old is attempting to make a comeback in the NHL after not playing since 2002-03 with the Chicago Blackhawks.
