Insider Says Marc-Andre Fleury Willing to Accept Trade to This Canadian Team

With the Minnesota Wild in danger of missing the playoffs, General Manager Bill Guerin has a tough decision to make before the trade deadline ends. Guerin will need to decide whether he wants to deal goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury or keep him. Fleury does have a say in where, or of he goes, though and an insider is reporting that he's willing to accept a trade to at least one Canadian team.

Fleury has a full no-movement clause, so he'll get a say one which team he just might end his NHL career with. TSN's Pierre Lebrun believes Fleury is willing to accept an exchange that would put him in Toronto.

"RUMORS: According to reports G Mark Andre-Fleury would be open to considering a trade to the Leafs. #Leafs #LeafsForever @PierreVLeBrun."

The Maple Leafs could certainly use some stability between the pipes. Does Fleury have another long playoff run in him? It's a bet some teams may be willing to make, including Toronto.

Fleury has said numerous times this season that he will wait until it's over before he decides whether to play another one. However, Fleury seems very content with where he is in his career. Another Stanley Cup would be awesome, but he has nothing to prove, and is a shoo-in for the Hockey Hall-of-Fame when he decides to hang up his pads for good.
