- Scott Sealy, Trades
For some reason San Jose and Kansas City seem to be nice trading partners. They did it a while back before the SuperDraft when the Quakes sent their number one pick for veteran defender Nick Garcia. Now the two clubs are at it again, this time KC is sending forward Scott Sealy to the Bay for some good ol’ allocation money.
Sealy scored 28 goals in 88 games (65 starts) over the last four seasons for the Wizards. Probably a nice upgrade for the Quakes compared to what they currently have. He may be a good partner for Darren Huckerby, who is set to join the club tomorrow.
Does the addition of Sealy improve San Jose’s offense a lot? Not really, he comes from a club that isn’t scoring in bunches to play for a club that isn’t scoring much at all. You do the math about which is better. Still, both sides got a fairly good deal out of this.
My bet KC is making room for the return of Josh Wolff to their roster. Getting some allocation money will allow them to remain under the cap and get Wolff at a good price.
What do you all think of this deal?
