Anyway, the Philadelphia Flyers today acquired defenseman Pavel Kubina from the Tampa Bay Lightning for a conditional second-round pick in either 2012 or 2013, and a 2013 fourth-round pick, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.
I was pulling for the Blueshirts to acquire Kubina — along with his expiring contract — for the stretch run. He’s a guy who was part of the 2004 Lightning, along with John Tortorella and Brad Richards. The price was a little high, but I would have pulled the trigger on this one. Hurts even more that he went to Philadelphia.
