But Clune adds NOTHING in any aspect of a hockey game. He loses any fight he trys, which is only middleweight, gets pushed off the puck easily, slow, small, no hands, cant even throw a hit real well. If this guy never plays another NHL game it will 18 too many.
Westgarth is never going to be more than the 14th guy that subs in for 40-60 games. That is all any pure fighter is going to be. And that is all Westgarth is. I suspect in less than 5 years there won't even be guys like Westgarth, just guys like Lappy, Simmonds, Clifford, Lucic. Nobody needs big slow guys that do nothing but fight anymore.
I would love to add a TK, Lappy type player to the roster but unfortunatly they just do not exist in system right now. Ideally we could add someone like that to 4th and make...
Richie - Schenn - ????
Lewis - West
You just crapped on every 4th liner with heart and balls. You really think the Kings will go with Richie-Schenn and ??? opening night against the tough Thrashers.
Remember Lombardi and Hextall run this show. I will bet all of you a beer that at least one tough guy will be on the 4th line come Oct. and possibly two of Clune, Westy or Clifford. If you don't then you haven't listened to anything Hextall has said recently or Lombardi for that matter back in June-July.
Also, if all enforcers are leaving the game why did Shelley and Booggard get 3 year deals right off the bat in July. Only one UFA enforcer is left, McGrattan...every other guy found a home. These guys aren't leaving the game. Every team in the NHL has one except the Habs, Canes and Wings (who btw invited Downey to camp).
I love how some of you people leave the tough players out of the line-up. This team is coached and run by three former Flyers. We lost OD, Greene is hurt and Clune played in the playoffs. You are all stupid if you don't believe the Kings won't carry some tough players on the 4th line. Are Simmonds and Mitchell supposed to do all the dirty work? A 20 year old lightweight and a dude with 3 concussions? Ha.
