The Tampa Bay Lightning face a significant challenge as they prepare for the upcoming NHL season. Andrei Vasilevskiy, their star goalie, is unexpectedly sidelined until December due to back surgery. With their goalie out of action, the Lightning are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to strengthen their goaltending roster.

Reports suggest that Lightning General Manager Julien BriseBois is considering a big move. They're eyeing Marc-Andre Fleury, the current backup goalie for the Minnesota Wild, as reported by NHL Trade Rumors. Fleury would join former Blackhawk Brandon Hagel, who was traded by the Blackhawks to the Lightning.
However, there's a twist in this story. Any potential trade depends on Fleury's willingness to allow it, a crucial factor that could determine whether he joins the Lightning.
This development shows the Lightning's commitment to staying strong in the NHL, especially with Vasilevskiy sidelined. With a history of deep playoff runs, Tampa Bay is looking for an experienced goalie to be the backbone of their defense during this challenging time.
Marc-Andre Fleury, at 38 years old, has a good track record. Last season, he had a .908 save percentage, a 2.85 goals-against average, two shutouts, and a 24-16-4 record in 46 games with the Minnesota Wild.
However, the NHL trade market is complex. Fleury's contract and other teams' interest make the outcome uncertain.
If they can't get Fleury, the Lightning may need to explore other options to find a reliable goalie for the upcoming NHL season.
