I think this trade is bad for the hawks for a couple reasons.

1. The hawks are taking on a 7AAV cap hit of a 36yr old goalie for nothing in a flat cap world. (Yes, he won the Vezina, but Chicago’s D still sucks)

2. They are now over the cap and probably can’t add in FA tomorrow.

3. They likely have trouble signing/trading their UFA’s and RFA’s.

4. MAF might retire anyways so…

Imagine winning the Vezina and having your team trade you for absolutely nothing.

Chicago wins if Fleury plays, if he doesn’t, the trade is fair as it becomes nothing for nothing

I mean this looks both dumb and smart by Vegas, and it looks both dumb and smart by chicago. Less chance of it being smart for Chicago more chance of it being smart by Vegas. Fleury is now considering retirement means Chicago has to pay up not Vegas. They just got his contract off the books for basically a ham sandwich for the next week. But at the same time if Fleury doesn't retire and Chicago does well Vegas is gonna look like the idiots for not getting anything.

They used him as a cap dump? Are you kidding me?

There should at least be some conditional picks involved in case Fleury doesn't retire. Alas, there seem to be none.

Vegas trades away the person who has been the face of the franchise since they’ve existed immediately after winning a Vezina trophy for essentially nothing. The cap space allows them to bring back Alec Martinez. In a normal year, the Vezina winner at $7 million for 1 year would be very desirable, but the flat cap and Fleury’s age means that Vegas can’t get anything in return.

For Vegas, this move makes sense roster-wise, but not so much sense value-wise or emotionally. It’s a tough call, but I think they did the right thing to make their team as good as possible.

And for Chicago, this is an absolute steal. The organization is still a mess making terrible moves left and right, but getting a top goalie for free is a no-brainer. Big win for the Hawks. If he retires, the Hawks lose nothing and they’re in the same boat anyways.

A Vezina winner for one year given away.

How can't you vote for a CHI win here?!?

Even though they got cap space in return, Vegas loses this imo. The guy just won a Vezina, you couldn’t even get a draft pick?

One of the most likeable people in the league goes to the most unlikeable organization. Ugh.

Vegas was great this year, but they couldn't afford him going forward. the fact that they paid no assets to move 7mil off the cap is a W. Losing a good player for nothing always hurts, but he turns 37 this year, so unless he ends up on a team that directly eliminates Vegas from contention, it's not going to be much of a concern. It's functionally the same as if he just walked as a free agent

Win for Chicago. Fleury was clearly a better player than Lehner in almost every aspect. Eichel or not this is a douchey move by an arrogant franchise.

If Chicago is comfortable adding 7 million, does this maybe hint that Toews won't be back this season?

I think Vegas probably loses, but it's not super uneven ... they basically traded Fleury for cap space.
