Friday's trade also gave the Flyers the option of swapping

"Nedved has always been a good scorer and a real good player
and we think he'll solve some of our problems up front," said
Flyers general manager Bob Clarke.
Nedved, who was benched earlier in the season, had two goals and
nine assists in 25 games in his first season with the Coyotes.
"Obviously, I am very pleased and happy to be coming to
Philadelphia," Nedved said. "I am coming to one of the best teams
in the Eastern Conference, so I am very excited to play for the
Flyers. This year has been kind of frustrating as far as offensive
production, so hopefully I can help Philadelphia and start
Seidenberg has been in the NHL three years, all with the Flyers.
He has two goals and five assists this season.
