Prior to tonight's game against the Wings, the Columbus Blue Jackets have sent Jason Chimera to the Washington Capitals for Chris Clark and Milan Jurcina. I found this move quite odd because how often does a team move its captain? Clark was the Capitals captain and he was sent to Columbus. Maybe there was some friction within the team or maybe it was just a good move for each team. Who knows?
One thing is that it will likely serve as a wake up call for the Blue Jackets who have struggled mightily recently.
It will be interesting to see how the Blue Jackets respond to the trade.
