Hey has anybody heard what has happened to our old pal Cliff. I heard that he was a free agent.
If so do you think that the Wild will let him go? Any chance the Preds might give him a look?
Frankly, I think not a chance in He!!.
Anyway, your thoughts on the old man and whether he has any game left in him or not?

He may have some game left in him. But I don't think the Predators will bring him back. He was traded, in essence, to allow Legwand to prosper more and it seems to have worked. Plus, we're going the "Giving our younger guys in the system a chance to prove themselves" route and bringing him back would be going backwards.

Ronning is currently a UFA without any legit contract offers. It looks like he will hang around and wait till a playoff team has injuries and then sign. Either that or retire.

I wouldn't mind having Cliff back on the team, but I'm not sure how well he'd fit in with the rest of our squad. Plus I'm always one to want the youngsters to get a chance, and if that would hinder them getting time....
Cliffy is one of my favorite players in the NHL though
