Yea we get Grant (Clitty) for the balance of this year and he is under contract next year for $1.25 million. We move Johnny O who was making $3.5 and is a UFA at the end of the season. On top of that we get Chicago's 2nd and 3rd round picks in 2013.

For my money Grant is not a step down from Johnny. He is not as good a skater but he is definitely no slouch. Grant is more physical and a much better passer (both break out and stretch). I also like Grant's shot more but I do think Johnny had very good cover skills and his mobility was an asset when tracking elite speedsters.

Still this set of transactions was a home run.
