[Rumour] Capitals interested in Marc-Andre Fleury

MAF and the Avs seem like a match made in heaven. IMHO.

 

He makes too much a year and would cost too much that it might hinder them more by restricting other more important positions they could be adding. Don’t think they would want to pay that price for a backup goalie who you hope never plays in the playoffs. Honestly makes a lot more sense for the Oilers then any other team.

Caps should be focusing on rebuilding.  They are old, slow, and done. 

They won't rebuild as long as Ovechkin is in the lineup. Similar mantra to what the Penguins are doing with Crosby (and Malkin to a lesser extent). Keep building for playoff runs until they retire.

 

In Ovie's case, he's chasing Gretzky's scoring record. They won't interrupt that.

Chicago can retain a max of half?

They could but that’s still 3.75 mill raising his price tag even more all the while the goalie they currently have is playing better. While MAF is the best likely goalie on the market the retention driving the price tag up more just for a backup I can’t really see it. Even after the max retention it might hinder them from adding some defensive depth or another forward all just because they got the best goalie backup. Honestly I’m not trying to preach Halak but he’s a much better and more likely option than MAF for Colorado.

Well there was the rumour of Sakic saying that he wants to go all in and actually name drops JT Miller as a type of player they could be insterested in. Leads me to believe they want to beef their roster up and really go for it this year. Getting MAF would be too expensive for a backup if they’re looking to add another top 6 type of player.

Why though?  Vanecek and Samsonov are solid young goalies, and I get that Fleury is still Vezina caliber, plus it probably depends on what Chicago asks for him, but they aren't really a contender IMHO.  

they are young but they haven't been exactly great this season.. the team have played well enough and are winning tbh inspite of the goalies.. 23 games so far this season the capital have to score a minimum 4+ goals in order to have a chance to win 5+ goals in 10-11 games this season they have given up 4 or more goals not including shootouts.. not exactly giving your team a chance to win.. 

 

the ask for fleury i doubt would be crazy high maybe a 2nd or a 3rd low risk high reward.
