Casey DeSmith will do just fine

With the Vegas Golden Knights decision to keep Marc-Andre Fleury instead of trading him away for cap relief, it appears any reunion between Fleury and the Penguins has been put on ice, at least for the time being.

Although a Fleury return to Pittsburgh may have always been a long shot proposition despite what the rumor mill was saying, the decision by the Golden Knights to keep him in Las Vegas serves as the nail in the coffin. This means the Penguins will have to look somewhere else for their backup goaltender needs, with a solution likely already under contract.
