Kubina off the market; traded to Flyers

February 18, 2012, by

Via Darren Dreger, and Nick Kypreos, Pavel Kubina has been traded to the Flyers for a 2nd and 5th round pick, pending league approval. There weren’t any reports connecting the Rangers to the 34-year-old defenseman, though he made sense as a trade target given their need to upgrade the blue line and the John Tortorella connection. Dave looked at Kubina in greater detail earlier this week. On to the next…

    Do the Rangers truly need an upgrade on the blueline?

  2. Bloomer says:

    Good to see the Flyers blow their brains out on a past their prime player. Kubina was not an upgrade on defence, sorry.

  3. Spozo says:

    Dont they realize they need a goalie instead of a defenseman?

    The Flyer organization is run by a group of mental midgits!

    They are stuck in a time warp, 1974-5, Broad Street Bullies, and live, or die by that mind set. They have not had a good goalie since the Lindburg kid got killed in a car accident, some 25 years ago. They always go for size, grit, dirty bastards to play for them, and goal tending is an after thought. I love to watch them loosing, start fights, and then point fingers at each other.

    There is an old saying that a fish stinks from the head down, that is the case with that organization, begining with Ed Snyder, and the rest of dim wits below him!!!!!
