Daily Times beat writer Anthony J. SanFilippo takes you inside the locker rooms of the Philadelphia Flyers and the rest of the NHL.

In what looks on paper to be a minor league trade, the Flyers sent Phantoms forward Greg Moore and unsigned draft choice Michael Chaput to the Columbus Blue Jackets for left wing Tommy Sestito.

Sestito, 23, actually played nine games with the Jackets this season and could very well get a cup of coffee with the Flyers before the regular season is out.

A hulking forward at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds, the New York native is a guy the Flyers view as a possibility to be a depth forward next season.

But keep in mind the one thing the Flyers are really missing is a big-bodied winger - which is part of the problem on the power play - and Sestito could get a look on the big club sometime in April if the Flyers have the top seed locked up.

They parted with very little for Sestito - Moore is slated to be a UFA at season's end and Chaput, their highest pick in the draft last season (3rd round) still hadn't signed and likely wasn't going to do so with the Flyers.

Paul Holmgren said the team looked around at a few players, but the asking price was too high for rental players and the Flyers didn't have much to part with after trading a 1st rounder and a 3rd rounder for Kris Versteeg on Valentine's Day.

More on this deal and those that didn't happen later today.
