Clune is playing to justify the price of his gamer at Meigray .... it's the ONLY reason I can think of. He does eat a few minutes and hasn't handled the puck like as much of a live grenade as Smith ... but ... he needs to sit because he's contributed nothing.

Put Hornqvist on IR. Call up somebody from Milwaukee ... sit Clune ... insert AHL callup in top nine ... put Smith on the 4th line with McGrattan and Spaling/Gaustad ... see what happens. Limit Smith's time and situations ... let him remember how to handle the puck and work his way back up the lines.

Erat/Fisher/Wilson
SK/Legwand/Callup or Bourque
Yip/Spals or Goose/Callup or Bourque
Smith/Spals or Goose/McGrattan

Could run seven d-men as well with Smith and Goose/Spals as the 4th line with a double shifted Wilson or Erat.
