I always questioned why clifford made it out of camp last year. He can definitely hold his own in the NHL. There is no question about that. But what were and are the King's plans with him? I immediately questioned keeping him last year and not sending him back to junior. His last year of Junior could have been spent working on his offensive game. Then a year or two in the AHL to allow is game to translate to the professional ranks. Its not like we needed Clifford last year. We dont even need him today. Unless the plan was to make him a 4th liner with some grit, I believe the Kings have mismanaged Clifford. I would like to see him down in the AHL. I always envisioned him as a solid 3rd liner capable of 40+ points with some serious grit. But he will never find his offensive game in his current role.


And for the record....

If anyone should be benched, it should be Penner for lack of effort or Williams for keeping his head down and not passing.
