Tampa Bay trades Andrej Meszaros to Philadelphia

Jul 1, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

TSN has just reported that the Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defenseman Andrej Meszaros from the Tampa Bay Lightning, in exchange for a second round draft pick.

Meszaros is a solid defenseman who has played with the Senators and the Lightning the past five seasons, and has played in less than 81 games a season just once. He averages about 6-10 goals per season and is capable of 25-35 points, but generally is known as a physical presence in front.

This doesn’t completely keep the Flyers out of the Dan Hamhuis sweepstakes, but it does provide the team some depth should Hamhuis not sign with Phily.

    “This doesn’t completely keep the Flyers out of the Dan Hamhuis sweepstakes, but it does provide the team some depth should Hamhuis not sign with Phily.”
    Dan Hamhuis was traded to Pittsburg for a 3rd Round Pick in 2011. Why would they even be considered for the “sweepstakes” if they traded a guy they had rights to!?

    They didn’t trade Hamhuis in the traditional sense because they never acquired him. They traded Pittsburgh the exclusive rights to negotiate with him, which they had acquired previously.
