If the Minnesota Wild are to be considered a contender this season‚ they will be interested in goaltender Marc Andre Fleury. The Blackhawks traded him to Chicago in July‚ and he took some time to decide whether to report or not. However‚ he decided to join the Unique Six. He is a free agent this summer‚ and his signing instantly improves the Wild's goaltending. The Minnesota Wild have acquired goaltender Marc Andre Fleury in exchange for a conditional first-round draft pick in 2022. The draft pick will only become a first rounder if the Wild win at least two playoff series and win four games. If the Wild win three of their postseason series‚ Fleury will be a first-round pick‚ and the Blackhawks will retain 50 percent of his salary. Marc Andre Fleury is now a free agent. He was a three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The trade with the Wild gives Minnesota a first-round pick‚ and also gives the team a conditional pick in the next round. But the deal isn't as straightforward as it sounds‚ as the Wild will have to win two playoff rounds in order to earn Fleury. While Fleury's trade makes sense for both sides‚ the Minnesota Wild's postseason defense is in need of help. Their defense is allowing 3.20 goals per game‚ which ranks them as the 22nd best in the league. With Fleury‚ the Wild can make a run at the playoffs and replace Cam Talbot in the goal. This is an excellent acquisition for the Minnesota Wild‚ and it is a move that will boost the team's chances in the postseason. The Minnesota Wild are a good fit for Fleury. Although Fleury is a veteran goalie‚ he is a solid replacement for Cam Talbot. The Blackhawks have a bad season‚ and the addition of a proven veteran will make them stronger in the playoffs. He also has three Stanley Cups under his belt. While the Wild have a lot to gain in the postseason‚ they will need to find some of the right players in order to succeed. The Minnesota Wild acquired the goaltender Marc Andre Fleury on Monday from the Chicago Blackhawks. In return‚ the Blackhawks will receive a conditional first-round pick in 2022. The first-round pick will become a second-round pick. In addition to the trade of Fleury‚ the team also acquired a conditional first-round draft choice from Arizona. Despite a bad season for the Blackhawks‚ Fleury will still bring the Wild quality draft pick. Though he has had a weak season with the Blackhawks‚ he has won three Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Moreover‚ he will continue to have a good deal with the Minnesota Wild. It's a great way to add another player to the roster. While Fleury's season with the Blackhawks has been weak‚ his postseason experience with the Penguins has been invaluable. During his career‚ he has won the Stanley Cup three times. He even won two Stanley Cups back-to-back with the Penguins in 2016 and 2017. In the last four years‚ Fleury has been a major part of the Wild's success. The Minnesota Wild acquired Marc-Andre Fleury from Chicago. He had a no-trade clause and wanted to go to a contender. His no-trade clause was modified‚ so he was willing to be traded to a contender. And the Wild‚ who had a weak season‚ were looking for a goaltender with postseason experience. They got it in return for a conditional first-round draft pick and a second-round selection. The Wild's goaltending has been a bit uneven this season. The team has struggled with a lack of consistency. They have been forced to rely on backup goaltenders Kappo Kahkonen and Cam Talbot. With Fleury‚ the Wild could finally improve their playoff record. In addition to a top-seven overall record‚ the new acquisition will also improve the team's playoff performance.
