(Video) PHT Extra: Was Pittsburgh smart to extend Fleury?

17 Comments

Yesterday’s big development — Marc-Andre Fleury signing a four-year, $23 million extension to stay with the Penguins — was a topic ripe for debate, and the hockey media quickly followed suit. Today, Brough and I spoke with NBC’s Jenna Corrado about the deal, and answered two key questions: 1) Was this a smart deal for Pittsburgh? And 2) Do goalies get too much blame when their teams don’t win?

Give it a view…

Note: When I’m discussing potential targets for Pittsburgh, I didn’t specify that Antti Niemi would be of the UFA variety whereas James Reimer would be a trade candidate. Just to clear that up.
