Mark Mowers was traded to Anaheim last night for defensemen Nathan Saunders and Brett Skinner. Mowers days were numbered with the play of still newcomers Glen Metropolit and Petteri Nokelainen. Metropolit is still unsigned and with the team salary cap being so high it made sense to trade off Mowers for prospects and give Metropolit the league minimum. This of course hasn't happened yet, but I will assume a contract comes within a week. My guess is Metropolit will become the teams number three centre and Nokelainen the number four. Both young defencemen that were traded to Boston, will be immediately assigned to Providence.
