In a recently released report, we learn why Marc-Andre Fleury refused to play for the Washington Capitals.

"Marc-Andre Fleury confirms reports that Washington was really interested in acquiring him, but he wasn't interested in going to play for the Capitals because of the many playoff battles between Pittsburgh and the Caps, while Fleury was a member of the Penguins."

This show of loyalty makes Pittsburgh reporter Jonathan Bombulie say that Fleury owes it to himself to have his jersey retired by the Penguins at the end of his career.
"If there's nothing more to it, and Fleury really did block a trade with the Caps for that reason and that reason alone, No. 29 should be retired to the heights of the PPG (Penguins arena). That level of team loyalty doesn't exist these days in professional sports, except from Marc-Andre, obviously... WOW."
