Keep Fleury In Pittsburgh #KeepFlower

This petition had 1,726 supporters

This is an immediate call to action to help convince Jim Rutherford and the Pittsburgh Penguins organization to reconsider their decision concerning goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. While we all understand the economic / business side of the NHL and financial sense it makes for the Penguins moving forward, we also would like to call attention to possible detriment this could pose to the teams dynamic. Marc-Andre is an outstanding athlete, a model teammate, and an all around wonderful person. It is our contention that while we agree Matt Murray is an amazing goaltender, We believe Marc-Andre's presence will be sorely missed in Pittsburgh and will have a devastating effect on both our fans and Players.By signing this petition we hearby state that we implore the Pittsburgh Penguins organization to reconsider Marc-Andre's inevitable move to another team and invite them to entertain this alternate possibility...Now that Fleury is exposed for the upcoming expansion draft, work on a deal with Las Vegas to ensure they do not select him. Thus opening up the opportunity to keep Fleury as a rotating starter or back-up. This would also allow the Penguins to possibly trade Matt Murray in favor of keeping Fleury as the starter and grooming Jarry as his heir apparent. While we understand this may be a lost cause...It is important for us to show our support for Marc-Andre and let him SEE exactly how much he means to the people of Pittsburgh and hockey fans everywhere! Thank You
