I am not that clever, this was Bob Stauffer’s (Edmonton color guy, big-time-homer) idea. He was on the radio suggesting it. I am not sure why he thinks Vegas retains here, but if the deal was straight up; and Edmonton thinks Fleury has anything left in the tank, this could work. I think it might me a bit harder to move $ 7 million goalie that appears to be declining this year than you might think.</div></div>
They would just retain 30% and be done with it. Fleury at 4.9 is an asset to other teams. He's had a solid playoffs every time he's been called on and still looks good, Vegas management just apparently chose the younger guy.
No way they take an extra year of Neal, it messes up their entire structure for when Glass, Hague, Dugan, Elvenes, Roy and Whitecloud would be due raises. Not all will get them but a few will.
Vegas refused to sign Neal two years ago for more than 4x4, they especially don't do an enormous favor to a division foe and give them a useful player for a useless one signed a year longer.
