While Marc-Andre Fleury would be a fine pickup for a Blackhawks team hoping to turn the corner on their rebuild, he might not even show up to Chicago.

According to multiple different reports, Fleury wanted to stay in Vegas, and might even retire instead of playing for any other team.

Perhaps the Marc-Andre Fleury move might be confusing for some Blackhawks fans who were hoping they would fill in needs in other areas of their roster, but the low-risk nature of the move might’ve swayed them to pull the trigger.

The Blackhawks gave up AHL prospect 23-year old center Mikael Hakkarainen in the deal, who isn’t even much of a big prospect in their system.

The Marc-Andre Fleury move was basically for Vegas to dump some salary, while Chicago is going to land a guy who won the Vezina Trophy last season.

Of course, that’s contingent upon Fleury deciding to continue his NHL career.
