OR, they don't play Fleury at all and send him back to juniors. Don't get me wrong, from what I've read the kid seems like he'd be able to play (especially for PIT), but if he played this year he'd lose his junior eligibility all together. This only becomes a problem in the event of an actual lockout / strike next year. Instead of potentially being able to play in the minors (and not lose out on any development), Fleury would be sitting on his a*s just like everyone else. Something to think about.
Play him right away (which might still be early) and potentially have him not play next year or send him back to juniors and guarantee him a place to play next year, strike or no strike. What do you think???
