After claiming him off of waivers the other day, the Capitals tried to assign Kris Beech to Hershey and the Penguins pounced! We made a waiver claim and Kris Beech is now (once again) a Penguin. We even kept #16 free for him in case he ever returned. No wait, we gave it to Eric Christensen. Well, he can either have 61 or add 1 and 6 to get to 7.
So after all of this time, the Penguins have Kris Beech, the Capitals traded Jagr to New York for Anson Carter and Washington still had to pay $20 million of his contract.
We won! We won the Jagr trade! Huzzah!
Although, had I known the travails of Kris Beech were going to involve so many posts and updates, I never would've gotten involved in the first place.
