Picture of Marc-Andre Fleury. Will he be traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning?
The latest NHL trade rumors for the Tampa Bay Lightning feature the team interested in Minnesota Wild goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.

In the latest Tampa Bay Lightning news, Andrei Vasilevskiy will be out until December due to back surgery. Due to this, the team may be looking for a new goalie to add to their starting roster, as they currently only have Jonas Johansson.

NHL trade rumors have been making the rounds that Bolts General Manager Julien BriseBois is looking for a goalie.

Will the Tampa Bay Lightning make a trade for Marc-Andre Fleury?

According to NHL trade rumors, the Tampa Bay Lightning are interested in Marc-Andre Fleury, the backup goalie for the Minnesota Wild.

Fleury does own a no-movement clause and would have to waive it if he thinks he would have a better shot at the playoffs with Tampa over Minnesota.

The Lightning may pick a goalie from waivers if a trade for Fleury falls through due to a thin goalie market before the NHL season starts on Tuesday.

What are NHL fans saying about a potential Marc-Andre Fleury trade to the Tampa Bay Lightning?

Make the trade for Fleury. Vasilevskiy is going on LTIR. Deal with the cap issues when he comes back at Christmas.

The Lightning will go the waiver route for a goalie. If it does not work out, then I could see them target a goalie like Fleury.

We all know the Lightning will circumvent the salary cap once again and have Vasilevskiy on LTIR allseason and bring him back for the playoffs.
