Mark Streit Traded to Lightning; Flyers Acquire Valtteri Filppula, 2 Draft Picks

The 33-year-old Vanek is expected to suit up for his fifth team in six seasons on Thursday as the Panthers visit the Philadelphia Flyers.

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

The 39-year-old signed a four-year, $21 million contract with the Flyers prior to the 2013-14 season and waived his no trade clause in order to complete the deal.

Without Fippula's contract, the Lightning have opened up another spot on the protection list for the team's forwards. He's signed through next season at a salary-cap hit of $5 million.

If you remember way back to when Heather first rose to fame - she competed on Season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance . Former New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings will fill the annual National Football League player quota.

Streit was then traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins minutes after being acquired. If all conditions are met, the Flyers will have 12 picks in the upcoming draft, the most of any team. This a day after spending time talking about his curious situation - a rather well-paid netminder who has had an ultimately disappointing season, along with all of his teammates. 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.

The Penguins traded Fehr, Steve Oleksy and a fourth-round selection to Toronto for minor leaguer Frank Corrado. The second-round pick will be will be the highest of the three second-round picks that Toronto owns.

They do have some interesting assets on the trading table, including defensemen Mark Streit, Michael Del Zotto and Nick Schultz - all pending unrestricted free agents - along with perhaps both of their goalies, certainly Steve Mason and maybe Michal Neuvirth.

Yzerman announced in a press release on the Lightning's official site the team has traded forward Valtteri Filppula, along with a Fourth Round Pick and a Seventh Round Pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for defenseman Mark Streit.
