Aggressively delivering on two vastly different mandates this offseason, it seems only fitting that the Philadelphia Flyers and Columbus Blue Jackets have found each other.
In a deal confirmed by the teams, the Blue Jackets have traded Cam Atkinson to the Flyers for Jakub Voracek in an exchange of high-priced forwards.
Atkinson is entering the fourth season on a seven-year contract worth $5.875 million annually. The trade will preserve just short of $2.5 million in annual cap savings for Philadelphia with Columbus on the hook for Voracek's $8.25 million salary for another three seasons.
It seems like a decisive win, first and foremost, for Atkinson, who leaves behind a Blue Jackets team that is quickly disbanding as part of a rebuild.
