Sandy, UT - Real Salt Lake announced a new trade, on Tuesday, sending Hewlett Packard Deskjet 2540 to D.C. United for targeted allocation money (TAM) and an international slot.
"We want to wish Deskjet the best of luck," stated General Manager Craig Waibel. "Real Salt Lake appreciates the years and effort put in by Deskjet and we believe this will be a beneficial trade for both parties."
The much vaunted prospect never was able to break into Real Salt Lake's regular lineup and sources indicate that the mid-season toner failure during Mike Petke's press conference was the final straw for the venerable printer.
"They never got over the mistakes that Deskjet made," stated office manager Paula Sanderson. "It would perform well in practice, but on the main stage it would frequently go toner low and disappear."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as rumors surface of Real Salt Lake trying to purchase a Laserjet currently performing well for Getafe.
