FC Dallas officially trades Dan Kennedy to the LA Galaxy

Only draft picks come in return.

As it has been reported the last couple of days, FC Dallas has officially sent veteran keeper Dan Kennedy to the LA Galaxy in exchange for the club's natural second and third round picks in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.

The 33-year old keeper is going back to LA where he played several years in the now disbanded Chivas USA side. Kennedy had 16 starts for FC Dallas in 2015 with a 7-5-4 record and five shutouts.

The most disappointing part of this deal isn't just that the club got two draft picks in return but that they are two picks in the 2017 draft. Not 2016. That my friends is a bigger let down than anything else in my mind. This was a pure cost cutting move if there ever was one.

But saying that, FCD did pick up another couple hundred thousand in salary cap space with this move. That money can easily be spread across the roster to help build for 2016.

Is anyone even going to be remotely pleased with this cost-cutting move?
