It's a small step backwards short term, but one I'm very pleased with considering the circumstances. Fleury is 7 years younger, not to mention 1.5M cheaper and 3 inches taller. I'm building for long-term success and feel I'm helping to accomplish that goal with this deal.
I've always had fleury as a backup I like vokuns style way more backstrom is always nice to have for a back up or a good goalie to trade in a deal for some players. Crosby and Malkin sweepstakes are still going
