500000 fans may attend parade for Penguins' Stanley Cup win

Fleury, who had nine Stanley Cup Playoff wins during the Penguins' run to their second straight Stanley Cup title, served as the backup to Matt Murray for Pittsburgh's final 10 playoff games.

We'll be updating this story all day, so check back later for more.

With his third Stanley Cup, he has cemented his legacy in the city of champions. And two teams, two individuals, so deserving of a championship. "Nothing really bugged him", Lonny Bohonos, the former NHLer and Murray's one-time minor league coach, said. As the season advanced, they were overshadowed by the continued dominance of the Blackhawks, the emergence of the Minnesota Wild, and the exciting play of up-and-comers the Edmonton Oilers. After all, they have the best player in the game in Sidney Crosby, a very formidable second best player in Evgeni Malkin who led all playoff scorers, and a very talented supporting cast made up of cagey veterans like Phil Kessel, a talented rookie in Jake Guenzel, and two very hot goalies - Matt Murray and Marc-Andre Fleury. "It's a great feeling". But young forwards Steve Payne, Bobby Smith and Dino Ciccarelli got hot in the playoffs and found themselves in a final against a completely different type of opponent. Other fans said they'd driven eight hours from NY to get seats, he said.

"He's a huge part of our team", said Roman Josi, the excellent defenceman.

Fleury, Pittsburgh's franchise goalie ever since he went No. 1 overall in 2003, was the seventh player to take the Cup in the Penguins' procession.

Even in uniform, he is an individualist.

In the movie The Dark Knight, Harvey Dent, played by Aaron Eckhart, says "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain".

Sadly for the Penguins, they get overshadowed by the Predators simply because they are. well, the Penguins. Put it all together with his unusually tenacious, crablike forechecking style, and you have one odd hockey player. "And I got it ahead of some of the older guys".

The Islanders, near bankruptcy two years ago and still debt-ridden, can ill-afford a bidding war with heavily financed teams like the Rangers and the Kings. Both have non-move or modified non-move clauses so they would have to approve of the contracts. To add to Torrey's potential problems, next year coach Al Arbour's contract expires.

So, too, is the National Hockey League. "Obviously you want to play the last game and sweat and battle for the Cup". Holy cow, there are a ton of just fans just jumping the glass and running onto the ice. Perhaps the passing of the Stanley Cup is a metaphor, describing how Fleury has passed the keys to the franchise over to his replacement. They are expected to win.

Murray has quickly earned that reputation during a brief, but wildly successful stay with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
