You're not gonna get draft picks from a team who's at the bottom of the Conference. Chimera's a useful player, honestly I'd take him over Clark. The bonus is that his cap hit is $800k less and that'll be mighty helpful next year. Dumping Jurcina means you get Alzner and I'd think Caps fans would prefer that.
Washington can't be paying bottom 6 guys close to $3 million. I think it's a good deal for both teams.
