Goalie Trade Option - Cap Space Saver Move too...

Since it looks like the Pens aren't happy about Fleury's development right now the rumor out there is he is currently being shopped. Would you if your Bob Gainey offer a deal with Aebisher and Perezhogin to Pittsburgh for Fleury?

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.

Yeah, I'd do it. But Pittsburgh wouldn't.

I don't expect Pittsburgh to trade within the Eastern conference.

I'd rather leave the Pens with their current goaltending and get 8 points out of them rather than help them beat us.

I would definitely make the call to see what the asking price is at least. I am VERY concerned with our golatending right now.

I thought the "rumour" was that Pittsburgh was looking for a veteran goaltender because they didn't have confidence in MAF, but not that they were looking to deal MAF for that veteran help.

Anyway, while I'd definitely do that deal, I doubt Pittsburgh would.

Rumor is they are shopping Fleury because he is the only 1 of the 3 goalies who doesn't have to clear waivers to go to the minors and they feel sending him down would shatter his confiedence, plus he is the more attractive trade wise too.

Pittsburg wants to trade MA. Fleury because they don't want another goalie!

I would do that. I doubt Pittsburgh will but we don't know. Aebischer can handle and be a number one goaler in Pittsburgh right now. A guys like Alexander Perezhogin at Pittsburgh, on the wing, can get 70 points easily with Crosby or Malkin. He's a better foward right now in terms of talent and season potential then Armstrong, LeClair, Ouellet, Petrovicky, Roy, Ruutu. So he can be no doubt a top-6 winger, Ekman, Recchi, Perezhogin, Malone, cneterintg by Crosby and Malkin.

I think, if the habs put Perezhogin + Aebischer + Halak or Danis vs MAF, the deal would probably be more "fair".

In a couple of year, we've got 2 franchise goaler.

IMO, Kostistyn can have the Perez spot right now, BTW, I'm not a Perez hater, otherwise I really like him.

So by getting Fleury, we would then have:
Huet
Danis
Halak
Price
Fleury
All seemingly capable of being no.1 starters in a couple of years if not ialready. I don't know about you but 5 no.1 goalies seems like a lot to me especially considering Fleury hasn't proved anything in Pittsburgh. So trading Perez and a bonified no.1 in Abbi seems like an exercise in stupidity and futility to me especially considering we could still use a big centre or a top 2 defencman.

Fleury's cap number is $1,295,000. A player's cap number is NOT by default the same as his salary for the current year.

I think our goalie pipeline is quite solid. I wouldn't mess around with it. Fleury may or may not be available, but if he was, the asking price would probably be quite high, and in our ain't-broke-why-fix-it situation, I doubt it would make any sense whatsoever to meet the asking price.

Aeby is better than Fleury and why give up Perezhogin for nothing? Makes no sense.

HELL NO! I never liked M-A Fleury's attitude, his $%$?&&@ sarcastic smile! And for what i saw at the Junior World Cup (or something like that, i don't remember the name of the event) a few years ago, he didn't impressed me at all! I still think that he is overrated, that he could be a good #1 but not as Luongo or Brodeur. I still prefer Huet and Aebischer than him.

This might be totally wrong but how about Vesa Toskala of the Sharks if they're willing to trade him off? Though this guy might come at a bit of a cost...
