At last, a trade!

Been hearing rumors all day that Washington and Columbus were going to make a deal, and finally it is announced: Chimera to Washington for Milan Jurcina and Chris Clark. So, not exactly the big Filatov deal some were expecting.

Chimera seems like a decent enough guy, but he was never my favorite player. Hands and brain just couldn’t keep up with his feet, and he was a source of infinite frustration for those reasons.

Clark was the captain in Washington, so hopefully he’ll add some veteran leadership, something that has been lacking this year. He’s not a big scorer; I’d assume he’ll replace Chimera on the thirdfourthfirst — oh, whatever Chimera’s line was this week.

Jurcina is big and a right-handed shot. He’s definitely not the #1 d-man the Jackets have been lacking, but can hopefully help fill some of the gap left by the injury to Klesla.
