Rich Clune Appreciation Thread

MVP of the Preds, throwing it out there- Brings the Ruckus every night. Dude can rage. Future Superstar/Jordin Tootoo on Beast mode.

He is legit. Even has multiple scoring chances per game usually too. Nice pickup.

don't think he's the MVP, don't think he's a superstar, nor ever will be, but you can't question his willingness to give of his body. Also, having come from the Kings organization, he's brought a level of accountability to the ice that I don't see in many other Preds forwards. Josi moves up, Clune moves back. He's defensively responsible, and Trotz SHOULD be using him on the PK.

He came here and Trotz had him on a very short leash, and he still draws less ice than most on any given night, but with the Erat trade, he actually moves up another notch on the depth chart and hopefully will get a chance to consistently land in the 12-14 minute range nightly.

Congrats on the extra ice time Cluner!

I'm very happy with him. Best waiver pick up of the year for us, and we've had quite a few.

100%, no lie.

Not Tootoo, but he's definitely grown on me.
Works hard and nice to see him pot a few.

Clune has been a bright spot on this team this year. A humble guy but has a bit of cockyness inside. Gives his all every night, knows what his role is and performs it.

Clune's awesome! Put him in rockstar mode and have him bang one in next time we are in a shootout. If he can do it on a Penalty Shot, why not?

No, he's made of marshmallows, remember?



Clune is a good player to have. Great with the fans, has some personality and isn't afraid to put that forth. He's a physical player who doesn't quite have the skill we need, but is the kind of guy good teams usually have one or two of. He works hard and gets rewarded for it. Kind of like Sean Avery before Avery's reputation went to his head.

Hard worker, actually he busts his ass every game, gets at least 2-3 good scoring chances every game it seems, stands up for guys, and can run his mouth to guys that deserve it. I like him!

We should all be Clunatics. Or part of a Clunatic Fringe. lol.

Hey guys, I'm running a fantasy league and I'm trying to find what position Clune mainly plays. As far as I've been able to find out, he plays mainly LW, but how much does he line up at RW?
