Flyers add size on D by landing Meszaros

Thursday, 07.01.2010 / 4:25 PM / 2010 Offseason News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Philadelphia Flyers added some size and muscle to their already-formidable defensive corps in the form of 6-foot-2, 223-pound Andrej Meszaros.

Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren made that official Thursday when he announced he had sent a 2012 second-round draft choice to the Tampa Bay Lightning for physical blueliner.

"I'm feeling good and I'm excited," Meszaros told the media during a conference call. "Philly was always a tough team to play against, and now I get to join them. I'm looking forward to that."

Meszaros, a native of Povazska Bystrica, Slovakia, spent his last two seasons with the Lightning. He played in 81 games in 2009-10 and produced 6 goals and 17 points with a minus-14 rating. In 133 games with Tampa Bay, Meszaros had 8 goals and 33 points with a minus-18 rating.

Whitney to Coyotes

Thursday, 07.01.2010 / 3:31 PM / 2010 Offseason News

NHL.com

Phoenix proved it, too, is a player in this free agent feeding period as Coyotes GM Don Maloney has signed veteran winger Ray Whitney to a two-year contract. Whitney was in Carolina for the past five seasons, winning the Stanley Cup in 2006.

Whitney, 38, had 21 goals and 37 assists in 80 games this past season for the Hurricanes. In five seasons with Carolina he wracked up 119 goals and 215 assists for 334 points in 372 games. He topped out with a career-high 83 points in 2006-07 and 53 assists in 2008-09.

Phoenix is Whitney's seventh stop on his NHL tour. He debuted with San Jose in 1991-92. He also played with Edmonton, Florida, Columbus and Detroit, though his stop in Edmonton was only for nine games during the 1997-98 season.

Bettman talks free agency, Olympics on NHL Live!

Thursday, 07.01.2010 / 2:34 PM / 2010 Offseason News

NHL.com

Hockey fans were tuning in to NHL Live! on Thursday in search of the latest-breaking news on the first day of free agency -- and Commissioner Gary Bettman was no different, other than the fact he was live in studio.

As he took a seat between hosts E.J. Hradek and Don LaGreca, with rumors running through the airwaves, the commissioner asked, "Do we know that information is true, or just a rumor?

"I came out of a meeting and came down here, so I can't confirm or deny anything."

Though Hradek and LaGreca didn't pump the commissioner for inside information, they quizzed him on several relevant free-agent topics, such as the process of a trade being filed at NHL headquarters.

Coburn back with Flyers

Thursday, 07.01.2010 / 12:44 PM / 2010 Offseason News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Braydon Coburn.

A restricted free agent, Coburn has signed a two-year, $6.4 million deal.

The 25-year-old Coburn had 19 points in 81 games last season, and played a key role on the team's power-play and penalty-killing units, mostly playing alongside Kimmo Timonen.

Re-signing Coburn, as well as their trade for Tampa Bay blueliner Andrej Meszaros, bolsters a blue line that already includes Chris Pronger, Timonen and Matt Carle and propelled them to the Stanley Cup Final.

It also will make the job of whoever ends up in the Flyers' net far easier. The team re-signed Michael Leighton, last season's starter, to a two-year contract Wednesday, keeping him off the open market, but they also reportedly are looking at other goaltenders. They had received permission earlier in the week to speak with Evgeni Nabokov and Marty Turco, and could still be looking at other options.

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
