Didn't believe a week before the draft, didn't believe the day before the draft, didn't believe it as I watched the draft, breathed a huge sigh of relief when Pittsburgh drafted Fleury, don't believe it a year later, won't believe it five years from now.....

Seriously, though - Pittsburgh hardly gave up anything to trade up and draft Fleury. There is no way Philly was considering that deal. I don't doubt Florida asked for that package of players, but no way Philly gave it any thought.
