The second stint of Kenny Cooper with FC Dallas officially came to an end on Friday with the Dallas Jesuit product being traded to Seattle for midfielder Adam Moffat and allocation money. But the big question surrounding this trade is which side will benefit more?

Being one of the two recipients of a statement from FC Dallas which said the club had traded the rights of striker Kenny Cooper Jr. to another MLS club on Thursday, a statement that omitted two pretty important specifics as in which team and what FCD got in return, got this writer thinking about where the Dallas Jesuit product might land.
