Jason Chimera 39 8 9 17 -7 47 1 0 1 0 92 8.7

Assets Has blinding speed and good size. Excels at the forechecking game, as well as penalty-killing situations. Can score goals in bunches.
Flaws Lacks consistency on offense, and his all-or-nothing style makes him an injury risk. Doesn't use his size enough to his advantage.

Update: From a financial perspective, the Caps move $4,008,333 in 2009-10 salary and $2,633,333 in 2010-11 salary (all Clark's) and add $1,875,000 in 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 salary.

What They're Saying:

"Good trade for both clubs (CBJ/WAS). Capitals needed someone like Chimera, and Blue Jackets need help at both ends." - David Pagnotta (TheFourthPeriod)

"Just talked to Chris Clark. Said he was "definitely shocked" by the news of the trade. Didn't have any inclination that he might be dealt." - @cmasisak22

"Clarkie and Juice two of my fav guys on and off the ice in that locker room. Will miss you both. Not a fan of the nature of the business" - @brettleonhardt

"If I was Bruce Boudreau, I would make Mike Knuble the captain. Incredibly respected, a guy Ovechkin really listens to." - @FriedmanHNIC
