Two big pieces of an even bigger trade.

The trade rumors surrounding Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury have only gained more steam as the season has progressed, with Matt Murray clearly demonstrating that he is the goalie of both the future as well as the present, and now many are speculating on where exactly he will end up before the end of the season.

In a recent report for the Hockey News, Lyle Richardson touched on a number of possible teams that could make a move for Fleury, but ultimately he belives that Fleury will become a member of the Dallas Stars in a trade that would see two goalies on the move.

From Richardson:

The Stars could be the best bet. A swap of Fleury for Niemi might work best for both clubs. Dallas picks up an upgrade between the pipes, while the Penguins shed some salary and get an experienced backup they can leave unprotected in the expansion draft.  

This would not be a player for player deal however, as the Penguins would most certainly want more than an expensive back up goaltender in exchnage for their former #1 goalie. Expect that the Stars would have to throw in something extra either in the form of players or draft picks to get this deal done.
