Wild Fleury will remain for one more year

There had been speculation all season that Minnesota Wild veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury would retire at the end of this season, and with the Wild missing the playoffs, many fans have been waiting with baited breath as to whether or not he would make a decision.

On Wednesday, word dropped that Fleury and the Wild had agreed on a one year deal worth $2.5 million, which includes a full no movement clause.

While Fleury is getting up there in age (he will turn 40 shortly after next season begins), having a veteran presence and a guy who is arguably one of the top five goaltenders of all time mentoring the next generation of Wild keepers won't hurt.

If this next season is in fact Fleury's Swan Song, this generation of fans should feel grateful that we were able to experience him and everything he brought night in and night out and away from the rink as well.
