There was a six-hour window on Sunday where every player was safe. As the Flyers Wives Carnival took place in Wells Fargo Center, no trades would be announced as the players met with fans.
But during this time, Ron Hextall was busy working the phones. The Flyers GM was not in attendance at the Carnival.
Hextall struck in the early-morning hours of deadline day, sending Braydon Coburn to Tampa Bay for defenseman Radko Gudas and two draft picks.
