Say it isn’t so; are the Wild interested in the Penguins sieve?

Wow! This looks like a ready-made disaster. There has to be a better option in net for the Minnesota Wild than Marc-Andre Fleury who recently hasn’t been able to stop a beach ball and was relegated to opening the Penguins bench door during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Michael Russo, Star Tribune -- Fletcher has said his priority is to re-sign Backstrom, and Backstrom, 35, wants to return. But salary-cap space is limited, so the Wild might decide to trade for a long-term No. 1 goalie or decide whether Kuemper or Johan Gustafsson can eventually take the reins.

The Wild has also expressed interest in Pittsburgh’s Marc-Andre Fleury, who backstopped Pittsburgh to the 2009 Stanley Cup but has struggled in the playoffs the past two seasons and was ultimately unseated by Tomas Vokoun in this year’s playoffs. Fleury has not asked for a trade, however
Thoughts on this one?
