Kimmo Timonen Traded to The Chicago Blackhawks

via Philadelphia Flyer PR release,

The Philadelphia Flyers have traded defenseman Kimmo Timonen to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a second round draft pick in 2015 and a conditional draft pick in 2016, according to general manager Ron Hextall. 

Timonen, 39 (3/18/1975), was diagnosed with blood clots last summer and has missed the entire season due to the condition, but was recently cleared to play and has been preparing for a return to the ice for the past several weeks.  The 2013-14 season was Timonen’s seventh with the Flyers, over which time he recorded 38 goals and 232 assists for 270 points in 519 games.  He is a five-time winner of the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the Flyers’ best defenseman, including the last three consecutive seasons, making him one of just three players (Howe, Desjardins) to win the award in three straight years.

Is the UFA D Men bin empty yet? Whatever is left is over priced!

I know, right?  I almost fainted when I found out that team was willing to give up a second rounder for a defenseman!

Not every GM thinks that every draft pick is going to turn into *insert name of Red Wing who has had his number retired here*.  A second is a small, small risk for the possible return.
