According to TSN, Fleury is now free to try and start a comeback with any team that is brave enough to give the 41-year old a tryout.
"It's like I'm back in Russell, Manitoba (his hometown) again where the reason I played is because it was fun and through the dark patches of my NHL career, it wasn't like that...the last place I wanted to be was at the rink," Fleury said.
"With my frame of mind, it's going to be a long training camp for those who believe they have a job already."
Fleury has not played an NHL game since 2003, when he was suspended indefinitely by the Chicago Blackhawks for substance abuse. He played one brief season in the British Elite League, but retired from pro hockey in 2006.
Fleury claims there are several teams interested. Of course, he won't say who.
