If Ben Chiarot is a popular name through speculation or rumors of trade, we can say the same about Marc-André Fleury, who is also on the last year of his present contract.

In fact, among the teams that might be interested in Marc-André Fleury's services, there are the Edmonton Oilers, who have no elite goalie in their group. The Pittsburgh Penguins could also repatriate «Flower,» who could come and support Tristan Jarry and be there if the need arises.
Yes, Jarry is masterful, but an experienced big brother in playoffs can only help the cause, right?
It was Raphaël Doucet who raised this hypothesis via Twitter, and I must admit that it makes a lot of sense. Fleury is adored in Pittsburgh, his three best friends are still there, Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin.
In order to add to the playoff experience, Ron Hextall could make such a splash. In terms of payroll, the Hawks can withhold 50% of Flower's $7 million salary. Then it would be up to Hextall to «manage» that in order to enter the remaining $3.5 million.
A speculation that is not impossible, let us say it!
