Washington gets: defenseman Milan Jurcina
Columbus gets: 6th Round pick
The Capitals just dealt Jurcina in late December in the deal that also sent Chris Clark to the Blue Jackets in exchange for Jason Chimera. The fact that the Capitals are now re-acquiring Jurcina could mean that the asking price for other defensemen they were looking at was too far over their head. It’s a head-scratcher of a move for the Capitals because Jurcina is not good and is strictly a depth guy for the Caps.
Dumb, dumb, dumb deal which is made even dumber thanks to the revelation made by TSN’s Bob McKenzie on Twitter that Jurcina was just diagnosed with a sports hernia. Perhaps this one just gets recalled.
