i am going to guess the Flyers chose not to give up any high end assets for a PMD. So they chose to roll the dice on a 35+ defenseman to a multi year deal. While I dont mind that they chose Streit over giving up high end assets to land say Yandle I am not a fan of this contract. It is a huge risk to hand a guy like Streit a 4 year deal.
the money is around what I would of given, but I would of preferred a 2 or 3 year deal.
