Philadelphia Flyers: Mark Streit Traded to Tampa

Posted March 03, 2017

The Flyers pulled the trigger, sending yet another defenseman to Tampa Bay (where they sent Braydon Coburn) in Mark Streit, the team's elder statesman and locker room leader. Last season, the Lightning were relatively quiet heading into the NHL Trade Deadline; this season, not so much. In addition to Bishop, Lightning forward Brian Boyle was sent to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for AHL forward Byron Froese.

Filppula has a list of 13 teams he can not be traded to.

You just wonder how many interested buyers would cast a glance their way. The most obvious deals are already done but that does not mean the Steve Yzerman is through making deals. The trade moves one of their biggest contracts on defense and frees up a spot for one of their prospects.

Streit was dealt by the Philadelphia Flyers to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Valtteri Filppula and two draft picks - a fourth-round selection and a conditional seventh-rounder in 2017.

Veteran Jaromir Jagr snapped a four-game point drought by recording his 761st career goal on Tuesday, but has failed to dent the scoresheet in both outings versus the Flyers this season. The Bolts then traded Streit to Pittsburgh for a fourth-round pick.'s how things eventually shook out. They traded their 2017 fourth-round pick and a seventh-round pick to the Flyers. Now we have to make good decisions moving forward.

It's not the first time the Lightning have flipped recently acquired assets to teams, and it's a pretty masterful move by general manger Steve Yzerman to get cap space for free.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun noted the Flyers retained 4.7 per cent of Streit's salary ($5.25 million cap hit) in that trade.

If we know Yzerman, which we feel like we do, he'll be able to put the extra cap space to good use during the Free Agency Period; especially given the insane amount of contracts the Lightning needs to re-sign after the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.
