The Vancouver Canucks announced today the addition of Dan Cloutier as Goaltending Consultant, Player Development to the organization’s staff. Cloutier will participate in the Chicago Wolves training camp which opens tomorrow.
disparaging comments aside, what does this add to the wolves and canucks? it's be interesting to see comments. ya, anyone can spout sh┤t but we've heard it all before so many times. i don't know of any credentials he brings so i'm curious about this appointment.
ok, replies while i was composing this. thanks

He makes great points about Cloutier having to make a huge effort to add technique to his game at the NHL level.
I guess it's kind of like with teachers, sometimes it's not great to learn something from someone who "just gets it" because they never had to employ any kind of strategy to become proficient - sometimes it's the people who struggled to learn who are best suited to teach.
(Which I guess could just be a really really nice way of saying "those who can't, teach.." )
wow the posters over reacting about this are just being tools, its not like hes coming back to play for us, hes a goaltending consultant. Usually the worse the player the better the coach so this is a good move
