Review

"As a young player in the League, I was lucky to have a captain like Theoren Fleury. I've never played with a more tenacious and determined player. The way he competed, night in and night out, set the standard for the rest of us to try and match; he gave everything he had every game. I appreciated what he brought to our team then and I appreciate his support now." -- Jarome Iginla -- Captain, Calgary Flames

"I've known Theo Fleury since back in junior, and I always hated playing against him. Theo was the ultimate competitor. He would do anything to win. That kind of attitude is tough to beat.

He was an emotional guy, and when we ended up on the same team in Colorado in 1999, he was still a pest. If I scored, he would come over and pound me on the back or jump up and hug me and get on me for not celebrating enough. I am really glad Theo has come out on top." -- Joe Sakic -- Captain, Colorado Avalanche

"If you had ever played the game in his era, you'd have been circled by Theoren Fleury. I've seen his lionhearted efforts win Stanley Cups and Olympic Gold. And there is a difference. In twenty-five years of broadcasting NHL playoffs, I still point to the 1991 battle of Alberta as the most ruthless test ever. And within that violent, intimidating vortex, Fleury swerved and darted and engineered goals that are replayed to this day. The Olympic stage is best on best. In Salt Lake City, Theoren was at it again. Distorting the natural path on skates, free to act, going around defenders as if guided by GPS. All they could do was marvel. Theoren Fleury was a brilliant hockey player. He excelled in a team game. He understood roles. He was welcoming. He was fair. But what makes him such a fascination is that he stuck to his game outside the rink. His team was not marked by a uniform. Theoren went around everyone. And if you'd ever felt the warm embrace of his way, you'd know he wanted you in the game. What was his was yours. So as you enter the ever-expanding circle of Theoren's life, look for the secret. The freedom to be. The courage to act. It's Fleury's life, but it's a circle of you." -- Ron MacLean -- Hockey Night in Canada
