I echo everyone's sentiments about Barney. That guy, when healthy, was a beast and could, in absolutely all honest, have been a first line forward. If you recall his draft year, he started as a Top 10 (maybe even Top 5) prospect. But once those injuries hit, his value dropped to the 2nd round. Too bad about those injuries. It can strike down even the best of them.

By the Kings not qualifying him, they can still bring him back to Manchester if no one else signs him. So maybe they are just saying that an NHL contract is too risky at this point for Barney but they might love to have him back in Manchester to see if he can overcome the injuries. Just trying to stay optimistic.
