Agreed, he still will be a RFA so if they aren't ready he will be resigned. But once they are ready, something has to give with the roster. And Clutterbuck is probably the most trade-able asset.

It should also be noted that after this locked out season he has one more RFA year(baring CBA changes). So its getting to the point that they are going to either need to sign him longer term(buying out some UFA years) or trade him and replace him with Bulmer. I would imagine he would get a significant raise to buy out UFA years and a lot of teams would come after him if he was on the marked after his last RFA year. I think its likely he is moved in the next offseason or before.
