On Wednesday, Penguins owner Ron Burkle said in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he would have given up the $15 million expansion fee the team received if it meant being able to keep Fleury.

“I wish we could have given the $15 million [expansion fee] back and kept him forever,” Burkle said.

Unfortunately that was never an option. Each team was required to allow the Golden Knights to select one player who was not protected. Fleury was the choice for Vegas, which will presumably roll him out as the first No. 1 goalie in franchise history.

Sad to see him go. Fleury is and always will be a Penguin in my eyes.
