WASHINGTON – The offseason renovation of D.C. United turns another page on Thursday with the 2011 MLS SuperDraft — and a couple of moves made this week indicate where United may look when their No. 3 overall pick comes up.

Forward Adam Cristman was traded to the LA Galaxy on Tuesday, and though he was never going to play a prominent role in 2011, he leaves the club with only two out-and-out forwards on the current roster.
