Last weekend, one inside-the-ropes Flyers voice said this to the Daily Timess:  "They are going to get some bulk. You can bet on that.”

They did.

A day after acquiring 6-4, 230-pound Nicklas Grossman from Dallas, the Flyers acquired former All-Star Pavel Kubina from Tampa Bay for a second-round and a fifth-round draft choice.

The 6-4, 258-pound Kubina, 34, had three goals and eight assists in 52 games this season.

That's 488 pounds of bulk to supplement the defense in front of sagging Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky in two days.

The voice was right.
