Wizards Trade for Cristman

The Wizards have made their first offseason move, as it was announced today that the Wizards traded for New England Revolution forward, Adam Cristman. In return, the Wizards sent a third round pick in this year's draft and allocation money to the Revolution. Cristman was the Revolutions third leading scorer last season with 6 goals while missing much of the late season run due to injury.

It's another forward on the Wizards roster. What this likely means is that some of the current forwards are likely on their way out. Guys like Ivan Trujillo and Ryan Pore are likely at the top of that list of forwards unlikely to return. Cristman was a player that I thought the Wizards could have gotten earlier this season before his season ended with injury. Will be interesting to see how he fits in with the rest of the Wizards forwards.
