Klesla ended his career. No way his career, but NHL career. This news didn't make huge splash and tsunami effect but some reactions were visible on the sport forums. Klesla was number 4 draft back in 2000. Rostislav Klesla said No to his new team of Buffalo Sabres and closed the door to NHL.
No run away groom like Kovalchuk here but this defenceman is still young guy to hangs NHL skates and play oversea in Europe. His trades were typical examples of NHL players' lives. You move next day to another town because you play the game here or you were aquired by another NHL team.
Klesla was a player of Phoenix Coyotes. He played here mainly in AHL in Portland, facing injuries. Washington Capitals aquired him on Tuesday, but he was traded with Michal Neurvith to Buffalo Sabres for goalie Halak and the choice in the third round of next draft. Its real NHL world and trades. Does it sound quite nasty? Yes, it sounds like Wall Street trading. Commodity. I miss somewhere human touch, sorry, but Wolf of Wall Street missed Oscar.
