Speaking of Rich Clune, you think he'll ever get another sniff at the NHL? Maybe not with the Kings but anywhere else?
If he was going to it would've happened by now I think. He's had to pass through waivers the past two seasons now and has passed without problems. If another team was looking at giving him a shot they likely would've claimed him and then given him that chance already.
I remember how stacked the 2004-05 Manchester Monarchs were thanks to the lockout. So many players who would've been in the NHL went on to play in Manchester (the Philadelphia Phantoms were also stacked with Carter and Richards on there).
The Monarchs were the 2nd best team in the league, but lost in the 1st round of the playoffs to the Providence Bruins that year. Take a look at their roster and how many NHLers from that team are still active.
