Fleury shocked Talbot wanted to leave Minnesota

The Minnesota Wild made one of the largest splashes at the trade deadline last season, acquiring Marc-Andre Fleury from the Chicago Blackhawks with hope that the legendary veteran would provide stability in the crease. Well, just a few months later that move might have shook up things a little too much and Cam Talbot wanted his way out.

After balancing the two-starter tandem for the last couple of months of the regular season and into the playoffs, the Wild signed Fleury in hopes to always have a dependable goaltender no matter the game. Talbot didn’t like the look of that and while he never formally requested a trade, some conversations must have been had.
