Former New York Rangers forward and Stanley Cup champion, Theo Fleury, discusses the cup and the Fly Line with ESNY’s Mike Vivalo.
We’re all a little crazy.
The statement is as true as New York Rangers fandom. One person who understands the notion, as well as any individual, is former Ranger and Stanley Cup champion, Theo Fleury.
ESNY’s Mike Vivalo caught up with the NHL legend at the “We’re All a Little Crazy” event that’s attempting to take down the stigma surrounding mental health.
Of the topics touched on included his time with the cup (back in the late 1980s with the Calgary Flames), his holistic style of life and the famed Fly Line when he (F), Eric Lindros (L) and Mike York (Y) took the NHL by storm one particular season.
Fleury, 50, was a 5-foot-6 monstrous scorer back in his day. Tallying 364 total goals, he came to New York in 1999 after spending 11 seasons in Calgary as well as 15 total games with the Colorado Avalanche (after a trade-deadline deal saw him leave his hometown club).
In three seasons with the Rangers, Fleury snagged 69 and 132 assists for 201 points over three seasons (224 total games played). Of course, some of his Rangers time and post-hockey life has projected negative off-the-ice headlines.
Today, Theo Fleury has flipped the script with brutal honesty and charm leading the way.
