Pavel Kubina traded.

Citing multiple twitter feeds, I can confirm that Pavel Kubina HAS indeed been traded to the Philadephia Flyers for a 2nd round pick and a 5th round pick. The problem now is that the Flyers has 51 players on contract and the limit is 50. A player WILL be moved along with that or a new trade will happen.

7:08 Instead of a fifth it will be a fourth.
7:22 It will be Florida's 2012 2nd round pick from the Kris Versteeg trade and a 2013 4th round pick.
11:20 Jon Kalinski has been added along to reach the 50 contract limit. Kalinski is a projected fourth liner that can score every so often. However, his fists are pretty strong and will be a good enforcer.

Wexler: I'm gonna go with Tampa on this one because we now know that they have no intention to make the playoffs this year and are adding picks for the upcoming draft. The 2 picks today give Tampa 3 in the past two days adding to the youth on their team.
Kyle: It really depends on the picks, but I would say Philadelphia because they will go far in the playoffs and their picks are going to be late ones. Kubina can help stabilize their blue line along with Grossman.
