Still, Penguins GM Ray Shero hasn’t given up on him.
“I’m not getting rid of Marc-Andre Fleury,” said Shero, “provided he wants to be part of it here and come back.”
So does he want to come back? His agent, Allan Walsh, answered that question in no uncertain terms.
“Marc-Andre Fleury is a Pittsburgh Penguin, he loves the club, the city, his teammates and the fans,” Walsh tweeted. “He does not want to be anywhere else.”
Tomas Vokoun is also under the Penguins’ control, but he’ll probably fall back into the role of Fleury’s understudy.
“Fleury is our No. 1 goalie and will be moving forward,” Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said. “He is a guy who will come back to this team.”
That effectively closes the book on this debate. At least for now.
