BERUBE ON FLYERS' TRADE DEADLINE ACTIVITY
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."
