Tampa Bay has flipped Mark Streit to Pittsburgh in exchange for a fourth round draft pick in 2018 during a whirlwind trade deadline day for the defenseman.
Tampa will also retain half of Streit's remaining cap, after the Flyers' agreed to retain 4.7%. Through 49 games with the Flyers this season the veteran defender has posted five goals and 21 points along with 22 PIMs and 58 hits. At age-39 he's still averaging 19:23 of ice time. He'll slide it nicely on the back end of Pittsburgh's blue line, and likely their secondary power play unit. Mar 1 - 3:23 PM

The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired Mark Streit from the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Lightning will give up Valtteri Filppula in the trade along with a fourth rounder in 2017 and conditional 2017 seventh-round draft pick. Streit is eligible to become a UFA at the end of the season. He has five goals and 21 points in 49 games and should be on the Lightning's power play the remainder of the season.

Although Mark Streit might be traded before the deadline, he's not looking at his situation like Kimmo Timonen's before him.

Timonen was sidelined for much of the 2014-15 campaign because of blood clots and was ultimately dealt to the Chicago Blackhawks, which allowed him to retire after a Stanley Cup championship. At the age of 39 and in the final season of his contract, there are some potential parallels between that situation and the one Streit finds himself in, but Streit disagrees. "[Timonen] was in a little bit of a different situation," Streit said. "He didn't play a big part of the year and he came back and we were out of the playoffs. If I were 100 percent sure this was my last year and I would retire, then I would probably look at it differently. I still feel great, I still want to play. So this is a little different. I am not looking like I want to get dealt and go to a contender or anything like that. That's why I don't look at it like Kimmo's situation."

The Philadelphia Flyers are likely sellers at the trade deadline.

The Flyers have been slumping badly of late as they are 2-6-1 in their last nine and are 11th overall in the East, six points back of Toronto. One thing the Flyers have in excess is defensemen as Mark Streit, Michael Del Zotto and Nick Schultz are all on expiring contracts and there are plenty of NHL teams looking for help on the blueline, or at least depth there. It should be interesting as their cross-state rivals in Pittsburgh are in desperate need of help defensively.
