Chicago acquiring Marc Andre Fleury

<< < (3/5) > >>

Guilt Trip:
This could go sideways quickly and if he did retire, would Vegas be on the hook for recapture seeing he won't play a game in Chicago?

Maybe, but a minor league player with a minimal shot at NHL success (and no real success in extremely limited games as a pro) is essentially the same thing. It's basically a reserve list spot swap.

Recapture only applies to contracts that were backdiving and 8+ seasons long signed before the current limits on term. They don't apply here.

CarltonTheBear:
While Marc-Andre Fleury still hasn’t heard from anybody with the Vegas Golden Knights, he has apparently been traded to Chicago.  Marc-Andre will be taking time to discuss his situation with his family and seriously evaluate his hockey future at this time.— Allan Walsh (@walsha) July 27, 2021
