McClement is a better player than what he displayed at the end of the season with the Avs. He came into a bad situation, and wasn't give a definitive role on the team.

Next year hopefully the whole team is better (can't be any worse) and I think he finds his niche as either the 4th line checking center who wins draws and is the mainstay on the PK, or perhaps even a winger on the third line with O'Reilly and they form an excellent shutdown line with a guy like Galiardi or Winnik.
