NHL Insider Gives Update Regarding Fleury Trade To Washington.

Published January 26, 2022 at 3:37 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks have a clear cut top trade piece.

We've heard that Alex DeBrincat is available, however it would likely take a monster package that no team could afford.

So that leaves goalie Marc-Andre Fleury at the top of the list.

We heard yesterday that the Washington Capitals are looking like the likely landing spot for the goalie as long as he's willing to accept a trade there.

That came from Capitals insider, Samantha Pell, and now we're hearing from one of the NHL's top insiders.

Elliotte Friedman commented on the situation in his latest edition of 32 Thoughts.

"We should prepare ourselves for the possibility of Marc-Andre Fleury, Washington Capital. At the very least, the Capitals are looking into it."

The Capitals have no cap space but have their own 1st round pick along with the Winnipeg Jets' 2nd round pick.

They'll have to be some salary coming back from the Capitals.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of a trade these two sides can work out.
