Will the Flyers be Able to Move Mark Streit as Deadline Looms

VOORHEES — For the past few days, Mark Streit doesn’t know what to think.

Free agency is only 21 games away for the Flyers defenseman…unless he gets traded. He’ll be 40 in December and wants to keep going, so he isn’t in the situation of Kimmo Timonen a couple years ago where he’d prefer to go to a contender at the trade deadline.

With a playoff spot a half dozen points ahead of them, the Flyers don’t look like playoff contenders.

The Flyers don’t need permission to trade Streit before Wednesday’s 3 p.m. deadline. His limited no-trade clause is that he provided the team in July with a list of 10 teams he’d go to.

“Maybe there’s demand for me, I don’t know,” Streit said. “I didn’t really think about it. I know I’m an older guy, my contract is up so usually you talk about those guys being dealt. That’s just the nature of the business but I’m all for here. I love the guys and love the team. I want to win with this team.”

His teammates feel the same way about wanting to stay as Sunday night the league started making moves.
