For the second consecutive day, a defensemen has found a new home. According to multiple sources, the Flyers have acquired defensemen Pavel Kubina from Tampa Bay in exchange for a second and fifth-round draft pick, pending League approval.

This move, in addition to Hal Gill being sent to Nashville from Montreal yesterday and Dominic Moore moving to San Jose earlier in the week, have been the only trades of significance thus far in an otherwise boring trade deadline.

Kubina, who will hep solidify the Flyers' defensive corp with a right-handed shot which they desperately coveted (Andrej Meszaros is their only other), is set to be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

In addition to his offensive ability, the 34-year-old veteran--who was third on the Lightning with 100 blocked shots--will help the Flyers keep some rubber away from their netminders, as they once again let up a significant amount of goals this afternoon, losing 6-4 to Pittsburgh.

The Flyers will mark the fourth team (including two tours in Tampa Bay) Kubina has played for during his 13-year NHL career.

Kubina, who has a no-trade clause, was asked to present a list of teams where he would be willing to move, to Tampa GM Steve Yzerman earlier this week, as the Lightning have fallen out of serious contention, despite a wide-open Southeast Division.
