Here’s what ESPN’s Linda Cohn tweeted about the sudden and unexpected trade of ex-Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury from Vegas to Chicago: 

That’s extremely (and unfortunately) accurate. 

Then-Penguins GM Jim Rutherford had a deal in place to re-acquire Fleury during the 2020 off-season. 

But Vegas owner Bill Foley vetoed that swap because of Fleury’s value to the franchise since its inception in 2017. 

All that loyalty and sentiment somehow vanished in a year’s time despite Fleury winning the Vezina. 

Foley didn’t call Fleury to tell him he’d been traded. Fleury found out on Twitter. 

Like Cohn says: Disrespected and underappreciated.
