The Flyers now go to work trying to lock up Streit before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 5th. And, if you ask Streit, he thinks a deal will get done and he's excited about the possibility of playing for the Flyers. He told CSNPhilly.com,
“It's an exciting time for me,” Streit said. “Obviously I'm excited to get traded to Philadelphia. I'm not sure what's going to happen the next few weeks -- or days -- it's part of my agent's job to work that out with Paul, but Philly has an unbelievable team.
“It's a great franchise and a great city and it's a hockey town for sure. The fans there are great and that's why I always liked playing in Philly. The team is really good. It's well-structured. It's young and fast and it would be a great honor to play for the Flyers.”
Streit is looking for a four year deal that will likely be in the $4-5 million range. He carried a $4.1 million cap hit last year and reportedly turned down a three-year deal worth $4.75 million last week from the Islanders.
