Default Flyers Acquire Markov

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Desperate to fix a struggling offense, the Carolina Hurricanes acquired right wing Justin Williams from the Philadelphia Flyers for defenseman Danny Markov on Tuesday.


Both players were to be in the lineup for their new teams on Tuesday night.


The Hurricanes rank last in the NHL with 86 goals and hope Williams will help. He has six goals and 20 assists this season.


"Obviously there's not the right mix right now," Carolina president and general manager Jim Rutherford said. "And we have to do something to change that."


The Flyers were forced into the trade by a rash of injuries to defenseman. Philadelphia was already in the market for a top-four defenseman before losing three backliners in less than a week.


Williams, along with 23-year-old Simon Gagne, was supposed to form the future foundation of the Flyers' offense.


"We think it's a deal that will help us," Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said. "We certainly didn't want to give up Justin, but we didn't have any choice."


The Flyers' first-round pick in 2000 has played in all 47 games this season.


"I was definitely surprised," Williams told The Associated Press by phone. "I didn't expect anything, but I've got nothing but good things to say about my time in Philly."


The move brought an abrupt end to Markov's short tenure with Carolina, which went to great lengths to acquire the 6-foot-1, 190-pound defenseman.


The Hurricanes traded former first-round picks David Tanabe and Igor Knyazev to Phoenix on draft day. But it took a long time to sign Markov, who threatened to play in Russia before coming on board in August.


Markov had four goals and 10 assists in 44 games for Carolina, which is next to last in the Southeast Division two years after reaching the Stanley Cup finals.


"He's certainly a player that I would've preferred not to trade," Rutherford said. "But in order to start to make changes, it's not always the players that you want to trade that you're able to trade."


Last year, Clarke said he would not trade Williams or Gagne for older players, even for short-term help in the playoffs. But Philadelphia had to make a move after losing three defensemen in the last week.


On Thursday, Dennis Seidenberg broke his left leg during at practice and will be out at least three months.


Two days later, top defenseman Eric Desjardins was also injured in a collision with teammate Jeremy Roenick, who missed while attempting to check a Toronto player. Desjardins broke his right forearm and will be out about two months.


Philadelphia announced Monday that Marcus Ragnarsson will miss up to two weeks with a sprained left rotator cuff. The Flyers recalled John Slaney to take Ragnarsson's place.

========================

I wouldn't of traded Williams for Markov. I was never a big fan of him. And I like Williams. But I guess the Flyers need D help right now.

You think? I really like Premieu. I like his size and phisical play. Brind'amour hasn't done much lately anways.

Ok well you got me there. At the time it might of been a bad deal. But right now I would take Primieu over Brind'amour.

They both are similar in type of play, but Brind'Amour is smaller and has playoff numbers.

Other than that, its equal.
