Thrashers Pick up Schneider from the Ducks

The Ducks sent high profile defenseman Mathieu Schneider to the Thrashers yesterday in return for defenseman Ken Klee and forwards Brad Larsen and Chad Painchaud.

Obviously this is a major win for the Thrashers due to the fact that they get an established defenseman for what amounts to a bunch of scrubs. The Ducks made this move to get themselves under the salary cap and give themselves some room to sign Teemu Selanne.

The Thrashers needed a veteran defenseman to shore up their blue line which looks to still be very young.
