NBC SPORTS/TSN, JUNE 17


Quote:
The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed on a four-year contract extension with defenseman Mark Streit.

According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the deal is worth $21 million with an average annual cap hit of $5.25 million.

The news comes just five days after the Flyers acquired Streit’s rights from the New York Islanders in exchange for prospect Shane Harper and a fourth-round pick at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

This deal was likely agreed to in principle, as Streit can’t officially sign until Philadelphia sorts out its salary cap situation. CSN Philadelphia’s Tim Panaccio reports a Flyers source says the deal is “not done yet.”

FLYERS' MEDIA RELEASE, JUNE 12

Quote:
The Flyers began their offseason re-modeling of the roster by trading for a veteran defenseman Wednesday.

The Flyers shipped Shane Harper and a fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft to the New York Islanders for Mark Streit.

Streit, 35, is a pending unrestricted free agent, but the Flyers now own his rights and will have an opportunity to sign him to a new deal before he hits the free agent market July 5 and could sign with any of the 29 other teams in the NHL. He made $4.1 million last season as a member of the Islanders.

“Mark is a player we would have had interest in on July 5th," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. "We now have exclusive negotiating rights and we are hopeful that we can get an agreement in place prior to him becoming an unrestricted free agent.”

As New York’s captain for the past two seasons, he was considered a valuable piece to the Isles roster as part of their resurgence to becoming a playoff team last season

ARTICLES AND COMMENTARY, JUNE 12


Frank Seravalli @ Philadelphia Daily News

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/f...authenticate=y

Quote:
For the Flyers, the more interesting figure may the term on any deal they hammer out with Streit. He’s already 35, so a long-term deal could come back to haunt the Flyers if Streit is unable to fulfill it. Streit has an injury history, missing the entire 2010-11 season due to a torn rotator cuff which required surgery. He hasn’t missed a game since.

A big money extension with Streit would likely all but confirm that the Flyers are planning to part ways with Danny Briere (as expected) and possibly goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov with the use of compliance buyouts.

The salary cap is dropping from $70.2 million to $64.3 million for next season. According to CapGeek.com, the Flyers are already over that $64.3 million figure if you include Chris Pronger’s $4.91 million, which will come off the cap on the second day of the season with long-term injury relief.

It may also mean that one or more of the Flyers' current defensemen do not fit in their future plans. If healthy, which all were expected to be come training camp, the team already has seven big league defensemen under contract: Kimmo Timonen, Braydon Coburn, Andrej Meszaros, Nick Grossmann, Luke Schenn, Erik Gustafsson and Bruno Gervais.

Adding Streit to the mix would make eight.

Mark Streit Excited About Coming to Philly, ‘a great city’

Quote:
We’ll reserve final judgment until he signs a contract, but the initial reaction here is trading for Mark Streit was a good move for the Flyers, at least in the short-term. The team gave up next to nothing to acquire Streit’s rights, and he immediately becomes the club’s best offensive defenseman the moment he steps through the front door.

Perhaps nobody was more excited by the move than Streit himself. The 35-year-old blueliner spoke to Comcast SportsNet after the news came down. Not only does the former New York Islanders sound confident his agent will be able to get a deal worked out with general manager Paul Holmgren before free agency begins on July 5, he sure makes it sound as if Philadelphia would have been one of his top destinations anyway had he hit the market.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Sam Carchidi @ Philadelphia Inquirer

Quote:
Streit, known more for his offense, is expected to seek more than $5 million per season. The Flyers already have hefty cap hits on the blue line, includng Kimmo Timonen at $6 million, Braydon Coburn at $4.5 million, Andrej Meszaros at $4 million, Luke Schenn at $3.6 million and Nick Grossmann at $3.5 million.

If Streit is signed, look for one of the other veterans to be traded _ and for Erik Gustafsson to be in the top six.

As a 26-year-old, Streit was drafted by Montreal in the ninth round (262d overall) in 2004. He has been very durable during his career, and has averaged 23-plus minutes per game in his four seasons with the Islanders.

A native of Switzerland, Streit represented his country in the 2006 and 2010 Olympics.

Harper, 24, signed with the Flyers as a free agent in 2010. In 143 career games with the AHL Phantoms, he had 20 goals and 21 assists.

Katie Strang ESPN

Quote:
The trade comes following multiple reports that Streit and the Islanders planned to part ways as free agency approached. Streit's agent, Pat Brisson, is scheduled to speak with Holmgren later Wednesday.

The 35-year-old Bern, Switzerland native, who had six goals and 27 points in 48 regular-season games for the Islanders, is coming off a five-year, $20.5 million contract and is looking for a raise.

The Islanders' last offer to Streit, a three-year deal worth $4.75 million per year, was made before the trade deadline in April, a source told ESPNNewYork.com. It is believed that Streit it looking for a multiyear deal worth more than $5 million per year.

That should not be difficult for Streit to command on the open market, considering the premium on offensive-minded, puck-moving defensemen.

The fact that the Flyers moved a pick to obtain exclusive negotiating rights for Streit indicates Holmgren's desire to bolster the team's blue line.

The Flyers, however, also are expected to clear cap space, with a few conspicuous contracts still on the books, like those for Ilya Bryzgalov and Danny Briere. Both players could be in line for a compliance buyout.

Reasonable to believe that Streit wants at least a three-year deal, north of $5 million per year

Last contract offer made by Isles to Streit came before trade deadline. Three years, $4.75 million per.

Eliot Shorr-Parks, NJ.com

Quote:
He is considered to have a strong offensive game, however, netting six goals on 83 shots last season.

"Mark is a player we would have had interest in on July 5," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren in a statement. "We now have exclusive negotiating rights and we are hopeful that we can get an agreement in place prior to him becoming an unrestricted free agent.”

It is possible, however, that Streit could never suit up for the Flyers. Streit is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5th, meaning he could decide to sign with another team.

Now that they own his rights, however, the Flyers can negotiate with him until the free agency period begins. It's hard to imagine the team would have made the deal without getting strong indications that Streit was willing to sign in Philadelphia.

Streit should also bring some veteran leadership to the team, as he has been the captain of the Islanders the past two seasons.

Flyers acquire Streit for 4th Round Pick in 2014

Just saw this on the Flyers twitter account.

http://flyers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=673683

Surprising since Streit is hitting free agency. Maybe this means he intends to sign?

I've been advocating this. He can be a good stop gap. Gives Flyers time to draft and develop number 1 d man

Here's how I see it:

1) Buyout Briere or Bryzgalov
2) Sign Streit with the money from #1
3) Keep Couturier and Schenn.

I can live with that.

Streit? Not a full on solution to the D problems, but a decent stop-gap.

I dont know how to take it. Either Streit is going to be the main offseason acquisition, or this is just the first of many many moves.

Ideally, they get Streit signed and try to work some RFA magic...that way worst case scenario is they only add Streit. I just want to keep Schenn, Coots, and Laughton.

This is the only way I'm okay with this. I thought Streit's "demands" or whatever you would like to call them were pretty steep no?

So this must be assuming that Meszaros' days in Philly are over. Unless there is another trade...

Logically he will get 3 years around 5 mil per (ish). But I am 100% confident he will get at least 3 years so... I don't think one should get their hopes up for 2

This, if signed well, will help us in the immediate. Streit is very good.
