UPDATE: Rumored to have agreed to a four-year deal worth $21 million with the Philadelphia Flyers, defenseman Mark Streit appears poised to finish out his playing career in Pennsylvania. However, as outlined by Tim Panaccio, the Flyers can't discuss the agreement until there's the required 2013-14 cap space available. As it stands, Streit's deal would put the Flyers nearly $8 million over next season's $64.3-million cap -- more than the 10 percent overflow allowed during the summer. And while defenseman Chris Pronger ($4.94 million) is once again headed for LTIR, and Danny Briere ($6.5 million) is poised to be bought out, Panaccio insists we can't count on a buyout for goalie Ilya Bryzgalov quite yet.

"... The Flyers can't buy Bryzgalov out unless they have a concrete trade agreement for a goalie prior to issuing the buyout ... The club is prepared to trade another player if they can’t exercise a second buyout on Bryzgalov. 'It depends on circumstances,' a source said ..."

The Flyers are believed to be very interested in trading for Jonathan Bernier of the Los Angeles Kings.
