Philly make their 1st move
Flyers make their first move, maybe of many. Flyers traded Freddy Meyer and a 3rd round pick to the NY Islanders defensemen Alexei Zhitnik. Zhitnik is making 3.5 million a year and ahs 2 more years left on his deal. Meyer, the former BU Terrier is making $525,000 a year and has one more year left. Both of these players are offensive defensmen, who run the power play. The Islanders get the better of the deal getting a younger player, who's cheaper, and a draft pick.
