Another Broadstreet Bully

The San Jose Sharks have traded defencemen Kyle McLaren to the Philadelphia Flyers for a 6th round draft pick.

Fantasy Outlook: McLaren was banished to the AHL even before the regular season started and was forgotten, until now.

This is a marriage for the Flyers as McLaren fits the perfect mold of a Broadstreet Bully. He is a hard hitting defenceman that will add depth to a depleted Philadelphia blueline. McLaren has a chance to reacquaint himself with the NHL and should be able to fit in nicely.

* Breaking News

Kyle McLaren has has failed his physical with the Philadelphia Flyers and the trade with the Sharks has been voided.

If your league values penalty minutes, McLaren may be an option next season. Look for him late in the draft as a depth defenceman if he can hang on with a team.
