Minnesota Wild Make Bizarre Decision Regarding Marc-Andre Fleury

The Minnesota Wild are visiting the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night in what could be Marc-Andre Fleury's last game in Pittsburgh. And just when you'd think head coach John Hynes would do what's right and start the Flower in front of his former fan base, turns out that's not the case at all.

The Wild confirmed goaltender Filip Gustavsson will be getting the start, because it's part of 'the plan' the team had set out and apparently 'the plan' cannot be amended. Needless to say there's been a tremendous amount of backlash headed the Wild's way on social media. 

Fleury spent parts of 13 seasons in Pittsburgh, winning three Stanley Cups in 2009, 2016 and 2017. So far this season, the Flower has appeared in 11 games for the Wild, posting a 4-5-2 record along with a 3.29 GAA and .886 SV.%. The Wild are 12-12-4 on the season and have been a mess on and off the ice. 

Here's how everyone is feeling about the news on Flower sitting on the bench in Pittsburgh:
