I've liked McClement for a long time but by the looks of it I wouldn't be happy winning a bidding war for his services - only because the Canucks already have Manny Malhotra at $2.5m.

Still, people calling him a 3rd/4th line tweener, that's a bit unfair. Most teams aren't fortunate enough to have Stastny/Duchene/O'Reilly down the middle, and this past season is the first one in a few where McClement didn't average well over 16 minutes a game.

If he can still play those minutes as well as he did with St. Louis I think a lot of teams without a great 1-2-3 set of centres would be able to make good use of his abilities.
