Marc-Andre Fleury, an iconic figure in goaltending, is approaching what many believe to be the final year of his illustrious career. As fans anticipated a hero's send-off, tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins took an unexpected turn, courtesy of the Minnesota Wild's decision.

In a move that some view as disrespectful, Wild's head coach John Hynes opted not to have Fleury suit up for what could be his last appearance in Pittsburgh. When questioned about this decision, Hynes explained,
«Going with Fleury in Boston and not Pittsburgh was just ‘part of the plan.'»

Fleury, though visibly disappointed, displayed his characteristic professionalism, understanding the coach's choice. He acknowledged, «A little bit,» when asked if he was disappointed not to play in Pittsburgh. However, he recognized the team's success and praised Gustavsson's performance, stating that the young goaltender has "been awesome."
While Fleury maintains his composed demeanor, the decision raises questions about the coach's understanding of the sentimental significance for both the player and the fans. As the game unfolds, hockey enthusiasts hope that fate might grant Fleury an opportunity to take the ice and savor a fitting moment in his celebrated career.
