Called a "good soldier" by Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, defenseman Andrej Meszaros will now go to war for the Boston Bruins. The Flyers traded Meszaros to Boston on Wednesday for a conditional third-round draft pick in June. He will be reunited with his friend Zdeno Chara, the Bruins' defensive leader and his teammate on Slovakia's Olympic team. The draft pick the Flyers acquired becomes a second-rounder if Boston reaches the conference finals and Meszaros plays in at least two-thirds of the Bruins' playoff games - or if Boston re-signs Meszaros to a contract before the start of the draft.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Nick Pryor has heard all the jokes. They are good-natured - the product of spending hour after hour, night after cold Minnesota night at the rink and on the road with his father, Flyers director of scouting Chris Pryor. "People tell me all the time I've been a scout since I was 5 years old," Nick Pryor said. "Watching hockey is really the only thing I've ever known. " He just didn't believe this would be him. Not this soon, anyway. Whenever he walked through the doors of a rink, he was always Nick Pryor the hockey player.

ANDREJ MESZAROS is not ready to rule himself out of Saturday's season-opening clash against Pittsburgh just yet. Like a handful of his Flyers teammates, Meszaros hasn't skated in a competitive NHL game since May 8. But after tearing his Achilles' last July during a training exercise in his native Slovakia, he wasn't sure if he'd be ready for the start of the season - whenever that were to occur. "It's possible," Meszaros said after the Flyers' 2-hour skate on Monday. "I'd say it feels pretty good.

Jeff Carter said Thursday he would need the weekend to digest his shocking trade to Columbus. But when yesterday rolled around and Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson had still not personally heard from Carter, the player for whom he partly mortgaged his team's future to acquire, Howson started to get a little worried. Howson, in turn, rounded up an envoy that included head coach Scott Arniel and team captain Rick Nash to fly to Philadelphia and drive to Carter's offseason residence in Sea Isle City, N.J., to seek out their new star player.

Defenseman Andrej Meszaros' health will play a major role in how the Flyers start the shortened season. A doctor on Monday cleared Meszaros for full activity, general manager Paul Holmgren said. "We'll see how he does once practices start," Holmgren said when asked if he expected Meszaros to start the season. Meszaros had surgery on his right Achilles tendon in the offseason. He has made major strides, but said he sometimes has problems pushing off. "It's a matter of time before I get my strength back," he said after an informal practice Monday in Voorhees.
