Philadelphia Flyers: Mark Streit Traded to Tampa

Streit, 39, brings instant help to a Penguins blue line that's been battling injuries as they round out the back end of the regular season and prepare for what they hope will be another deep postseason run.

This trade was genius on the part of Yzerman because it served several purposes.

Meanwhile, the Flyers made a commitment to goaltender Michael Neuvirth on Wednesday, signing him to a two-year, $5 million extension.

Filppula has a list of 13 teams he can not be traded to without his permission.

Filppula is set to make $5 million in 2017-18.

The two teams may also be discussing center Tyler Johnson, whom the Lightning is also dangling in the trade market. If all conditions are met, the Flyers will have 12 picks in the upcoming draft, the most of any team.

The trade deadline has come and gone and Marc-Andre Fleury is still with the Penguins. The draft pick will be determined based on how the Los Angeles Kings do in the playoffs (if they get there) and how Bishop performs.

Investigation continues in case of boy left in hot auto in Brandon
Investigators will be reviewing the prior history of the child, including any calls for service at the residence, McKinnon said. The young woman arrived for work Tuesday morning at the BFF Kidz Child Care Center with her two-year-old half brother.

The Penguins shed salary just before the trade, sending Eric Fehr to the Toronto Maple Leafs, along with Steve Oleksy.

A healthy and fresh defence too, which is why Pittsburgh sent a fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft to Tampa Bay in exchange for veteran defenceman Mark Streit, who was acquired by the Lightning earlier in the day.

Unfortunately for Streit, his tenure here in the Bolts Nation was rather short-lived.

The Florida Panthers added quite the punch to their bid for the postseason by acquiring veteran forward Thomas Vanek prior to the deadline.

TFP reported on Saturday that Predators GM David Poile has had discussions with the Tampa Bay Lightning about center Valtteri Filppula.

But Filppula, who has a partial-no move clause, rejected a trade this week to Toronto, a bigger deal involving Brian Boyle.
