TORONTO - Say what you will about Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, but the man truly believes in the team he has assembled. Need proof? Consider this: With his job possibly hanging in the balance - if the Flyers miss the playoffs for a second straight year, one wonders if the big boss, Ed Snider, will remain patient - Holmgren only tweaked his roster at the trade deadline. In separate deals, he acquired Andrew MacDonald from the Islanders and dealt Andrej Meszaros to Boston.

There is intrigue surrounding the status of Flyers goalie Steve Mason for Thursday's playoff opener against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Mason is trying to overcome an unspecified upper-body injury; he is believed to have whiplash symptoms after being in a collision in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

A decision on Mason's availability for Game 1 is expected to be made after Wednesday's practice, said general manager Paul Holmgren, who would not say whether Mason had a concussion.

AFTER MAKING a few trips to Sweden to watch him, work with him and track his development, the Flyers couldn't wait to get their hands on second-round pick Robert Hagg. Just a few days after Hagg's season ended with MODO in the Swedish Hockey League, the Flyers announced yesterday that they had come to agreement on a 3-year, entry-level deal to bring the 19-year-old defenseman to North America. Hagg was selected 41st overall in 2013, behind first-round pick Samuel Morin. Hagg will arrive in the United States on Monday and report to the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms for the final 15 games of their season.

Wayne Simmonds plus Brayden Schenn would be better than Mike Richards - that's what Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told the hockey world 21/2 years ago when he stunningly traded his in-his-prime captain, Richards, to Los Angeles for two young forwards. Simmonds and Schenn have blossomed, while Richards has dipped. Bottom line: Holmgren was right. Richards, a 31-goal scorer for the Flyers in 2009-10, has just six goals this season with the talented Kings. Simmonds (16)

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren denied a TSN report that the team agreed to terms with defenseman Mark Streit on a four-year contract that would pay him $21 million. Holmgren, who acquired Streit's rights from the New York Islanders last week, said talks were ongoing and he was "confident" a deal would be reached. TSN said Streit would sign when the Flyers had salary-cap space available. Streit, 35, can become an unrestricted free agent if he does not sign by July 5. - Sam Carchidi

The Flyers agreed to terms with defenseman Robert Hagg, their second-round pick last June, to an entry-level contract Friday, and there are indications they are in the hunt for free-agent defenseman Christian Folin of UMass-Lowell. Hagg, 19, who was the youngest regular defenseman in the Sweden Hockey League, will report to the Phantoms on Tuesday, and his three-year entry-level deal will start next season. If Kimmo Timonen retires, Hagg could be in the discussion for a spot with the Flyers next season - though he likely will need a full year of AHL seasoning.

The Flyers want to go into the all-star break with a positive feeling. Standing in their way is Florida, the surprising Southeast Division leader and a team that has not made the playoffs in the last 10 seasons. The teams will meet Tuesday at the BankAtlantic Center, where the Flyers scored a 3-2 win on Nov. 13. "We're going on a little break, and it's important to end on a good note," center Claude Giroux said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. Actually, Giroux and teammate Kimmo Timonen won't have much time off because they are playing in the All-Star Game in Ottawa on Sunday.
