NHL Trade Deadline: The 4 Deals That Most Affect the Philadelphia Flyers

All the mayhem is finally done.

Now that the trade deadline has passed, team rosters are final until the end of the season. The big team that saw the most movement before 3pm on Monday was the Florida Panthers. They gave away a lot of players that other teams might hold onto (Mike Frolik, Bryan McCabe and Bryan Allen).

While the Philadelphia Flyers didn't deal the most, they still had their fair share in making moves throughout the NHL. Their biggest one being the acquisition of Kris Versteeg from Toronto on Feb. 14.

Of course, acquiring a player who has 26 points in two postseasons with the Chicago Blackhawks is a great pickup, but it's how the other teams dealt players that can really affect the first place Flyers.

Trades involving teams in the same conference and division as the Flyers, which, like the Panthers, there were a lot of. 

It seems improbable that another team's trade deadline moves could affect another team, in this case the Flyers, and drop them out of the number one slot in the Eastern Conference. 

But hey, crazier stuff has happened.
