I would've said the same thing about Clune the first couple of games in, but Clune has shown he can actually be a contributing member of a line and has displayed some solid hockey sense (which has surprised me). In short, if another forward goes down, Clune gives you a lot more ability to absorb some ice time than someone like McGrattan.
This move should probably be permanent.
Somebody has to fill the permascratch spot. Why not McGrattan? (\/) (°,,,°) (\/)
