The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defensemen Pavel Kubina from the Tampa Bay Lightning and are reportedly out of the Rick Nash discussion.
Minor-league player Jon Kalinski is headed to the Lightning organization along with a conditional second-round pick. That pick was sent to Philadelphia as part of the Kris Versteeg trade last offseason, and the Panthers will decide whether it's a 2012 pick or a 2013 pick. The Flyers' fourth-round pick in 2012 is also Tampa-bound.
The moves are reactions to the absence of Flyers captain Chris Pronger, who is out for the season with concussion issues.
Kubina has been playing 19 minutes a game for the Lightning and is a plus-1 on the season on a team with a minus-34 goal differential.
With that deal, the Flyers have also reportedly tabled discussions with the Columbus Blue Jackets over Rick Nash, according to TSN's Darren Dreger. The Blue Jackets were believed to be asking for James van Riemsdyk, Sergei Bobrovksy, Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier as part of the deal.
