Rapids Add Striker Depth

The Rapids biggest roster problems starting the season were a lack of depth at winger and forward. Last week the Rapids added winger help in the form of Claudio Lopez. Today they took at step towards dealing with their problems up front. They traded their 2nd round pick in 2010 to San Jose for striker Quincy Amarikwa. Amarikwa was San Jose's third round pick in the 2009 Superdraft.

In other news as expected Ross Schunk was officially put on IR, and he was joined their by Ciaran O'Brien. The Rapids now have 26 players on their roster, but two are in IR and a 3rd will be returning on his loan to Charlotte. I'm not sure who's a Dev player and who's a senior player at this point. By my figuring we have 21 senior players, so somebody I think is a senior player is obviously a developmental player (Ian Joyce?). I think we have an open Developmental spot until Ciaran O'Brien comes off of IR but I'm really not sure at this point.
