National Hockey League trade deadline: Lightning trade Valtteri Filppula, acquire, then trade Mark Streit

He was fifth on the Lightning in scoring at the time of the trade where he's brought a veteran presence and been relied upon heavily in the faceoff circle during the past four seasons in Tampa Bay. They traded their 2017 fourth-round pick and a seventh-round pick to the Flyers.

Yzerman announced in a press release on the Lightning's official site the team has traded forward Valtteri Filppula, along with a Fourth Round Pick and a Seventh Round Pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for defenseman Mark Streit. Frank Seravalli of TSN reports that the Flyers are eating a portion of Streit's salary, which doesn't really matter since it's done in 20 games. Streit had just been traded to Tampa from Philadelphia, and the Lightning have agreed to pay 50 percent of his salary. He has 6 points, 3 goals, 3 assists in 62 games played in the Orange and Black this season.

The Panthers are hoping they've added to their offensive depth by acquiring forward Thomas Vanek from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for defenseman Dylan McIlrath and a third-round draft pick. Filppula's No Movement Clause made him automatically protected in the draft, which ultimately would have left another younger player exposed. The Lightning have two options leading up to the expansion draft - to protect eight skaters and a goaltender, or alternatively, opt to protect seven forwards, three defensemen and a goalie. They are trying to become the first National Hockey League team to win back-to-back titles since the Red Wings in 1997-98. If all conditions are met, the Flyers will have 12 picks in the upcoming draft, the most of any team.

TFP Senior Writer Dennis Bernstein reported earlier this evening that the Predators are also engaged in talks with the Los Angeles Kings, though it's unclear which players the two teams are discussing. A $1.45 million per year fourth liner?
