Aebisher is your legit #1 with Thibault as a decent #2, plus I think Perezhogin would really do well playing with Malkin.

Fleury is a good goalie who has been on bad Penguin teams and now a developing better team, but still very young team. He could play behind Huey for the next 2 seasons playing the 25-30 games and play on a stronger all around team in the Habs. It also brings back a Franco player with star potential, not to mention a potentially nice tandem in Fleury and Price in 2-3 years.

This trade would also open up some payroll space since Fleury makes $990,000.00 and Abby makes $1,900,000.00 + Perezhogin's $627,000.00=$2,527,000.00 which opens $1,537,000 cap space on our payroll too.

If he is being shopped I think BG should make a call.
I would definitely make the call to see what the asking price is at least. I am VERY concerned with our golatending right now.
