Erat Feels It Is Time To Move On From Washington

via Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

Less than nine months after he was acquired by Washington, Martin Erat has asked the Capitals to trade him.

“I want to be traded. We’ll see how it goes,” Erat said following Monday’s practice in Arlington.”Since day one, I didn’t get the chance here. I got traded here to be a top six player but never got the chance, never played more than 15 minutes in here and it’s time for me to move on.”

“It was long coming, starting from the training camp. I never get any chance, any look,” Erat said. “It’s time for me to go.”

That’s cute.  Erat thinks he’s a Top 6 player on any team in the league.

To be fair, why would anyone trade for a 50-60 point a year player in order to have him play a third or fourth line role?
