Jamisons Investors GM Theaster has made an announcement regarding his acquisition of Johnny Oduya.
"Today, The Jamisons Investors have finalized a trade with Generic Team Name. With Marc Staal recently going down to an eye Injury A hole had opened up in the back end. We had no prospects ready to fill the Job and no one in free agency, that we felt, could successfully fill that spot in line with our high standard. So the only avenue we had was on the Trade front. We are now happy to announce, after a long and harrowing discussion process. We have received Johnny Oduya and Generic Team Names 16th round pick in the upcoming draft, in exchange for the 14th pick in this years draft, Justin Abdelkader and Steve Downie. This may seem like an over payment to some. However, we at Jamisons Investors feel that to get the best possible shot at the Calgary Flames HF League cup, we need a healthy line up. Steve Downie has been injured for most of the year, and while it is tough to part with his talents. We felt his spot could be best used for someone in a better position to help the team. We wish him nothing but the best at Generic Team Name. Justin Abdelkader had been a tremendous talent for us, winning a large amount of faceoffs and being a very physical presence. He unfortunately, when we looked up and down our line up, ended up being the odd man out in our future plans for this organization. We hold no ill will against him, as has been widely suspected, and would welcome him and Downie back into the organization should such a situation present itself. We feel Mr. Oduya will do nothing but improve us going forward, filling in defensively and offensively for Marc Staal in his unfortunate absence as well as in his own right."
"We would also at this time like to formally announce that we are no longer actively seeking players for any particular position. Though, we are still open to trades, and are always looking for draft picks and prospects. As we will be until the bell rings on deadline day."
"No further questions, Thank you."
