Before the Flyers would play the Washington Capitals, but just after the NHL trade deadline, Craig Berube had this to say:

Your reaction to the Andrej Meszaros trade?

"It's always tough losing a good player like Meszaros. He played well for a good stretch here, and we are going to miss him."

With Andrew MacDonald arriving and Meszaros going, how does that impact the Flyers?

"MacDonald is a good skater, a good puck-mover, a lot like Meszaros. He leads the league in shot-blocks. He plays a good game in his own end. So we are looking for a good, two-way defenseman."

Paul Holmgren said this team had earned the right to stay together. Is that a compliment to what you have done here?

"Yeah, like I said, I liked our team all along. I think the guys worked extremely hard to get to this point. A lot of guys have done a lot of good things here this year and have improved. Obviously, we are not where we want to be yet. We have a long way to go. But we are working toward that and we are getting better."
