Dan’s Daily: Major Fleury Gaffe, Bruin Crashes Vancouver w/ Beer Chug



Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL trade, Marc-andre fleury

For those of us who appreciate the human being Marc-Andre Fleury and wish him success in Vegas, Friday night was an “oh no” moment and one we’ve seen before, unfortunately. It was as bad as it sounds as a Fleury misplay rescued defeat from the jaws of victory in the final minutes. NHL scouts broke down a few UFA centers, and why the Pittsburgh Penguins can’t just blow it up and start over.

It was a heartbreaking moment and too reminiscent of Fleury’s worst moments in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: Here’s why the Pittsburgh Penguins just can’t blow it up and start over. 

The comments on the story were frustrating. If you find yourself asking–why not trade Malkin and Letang since they probably won’t win the Cup again? We answer with complete detail and the realities of the situation. If you still don’t get it…reread the first 490 words.

PHN+: The Penguins just might need a center after Seattle plucks a player from the Penguins roster. Or if you just want to know who’s fading, who’s a bargain–three NHL scouts gave us a peek at their scouting reports on a few UFA centers, including Nick Bonino, Eric Haula, and Ryan Getzlaf.

NHL Playoffs, NHL Trade Chatter, & National Hockey Now

NHL Trade Talk:


Vegas: Marc-Andre Fleury mishandled a puck in the final couple of minutes. He gift-wrapped a goal, just as he did when the Pittsburgh Penguins faced Columbus in 2014, except this is the NHL Semifinal. Oh no, Marc-Andre. 

Vegas lost Game 3, 3-2 in OT after a Josh Anderson converted what became a two-on-none. Vegas trails the series 2-1. 

Boston: It was the 10th anniversary of the Boston Bruins winning Game 7 and the Stanley Cup in Vancouver. Milan Lucic, an integral part of that team, crashed Rogers Arena with a couple of Stellas to celebrate. 

The Athletic Chicago: Former co-host and radio show partner of this writer, Mark Lazerus, is hearing the Chicago Blackhawks will take a run at both of the big-name defensemen on the NHL trade market, Seth Jones and Dougie Hamilton. 

Detroit Hockey Now: What will the Atlantic Divisions Standings look like next year?

NYI: Yeah, the New York Islanders sent a message in Game 1, but ever since, the Tampa Bay Lightning have been reminding the Islanders why they’re the champs. 

Florida: Sasha Barkov wins the Selke Trophy

San Jose: Some controversy after the San Jose Sharks signed Swedish prospect Jonathan Dahlen to a one-year, one-way contract. At least one NHL scout scoffed. 

And OH BY THE WAY–Tuesday at noon:  Washington Hockey Now.

Bring back fleury! Good to see the mental midget lives on.

Anyone who watched MAF during his career in Pittsburgh had to get a laugh out of the praise he got last night for his “stick handling” ability. He is an outstanding goaltender and simply a person that makes things better just by being in the room . . . but as I heard those comments I could not help but think that watching him go behind the net play after play in an attempt to help out his defensemen was nothing short of Russian roulette. And eventually the chamber with the bullet came up. He has a long long list… Read more »
