Crawford loves Cloutier

Anyone find this ironic Both on the same team again, this time in LA. So my guess is Garons and Labarberras game time will be very limited.

It is not really irony, or even a coincidence. Crawford wanted him here. Unfortunately I believe he is entirely too high on Cloutier, but in the very least it strengthens the Kings goaltending situation.

Joanie loves Chachi was a Happy Day's spinoff that lasted only one season. I don't see this relationship lasting longer especially when Cloutier starts giving bad goals.

The Cloutier move made total sense from an organizational standpoint. Fans with only a casual interest in any hockey outside of their home-team sphere would hardly take to liking this move, but let's face it... the team hasn't won much of anything with any of the goaltenders they've trotted out over the past decade-plus (save for a few months of Potvin-hotness.) This is a move that makes more sense than allowing Garon and Labarbara to steer the ship one more time. 99.9% chance this team doesn't make the playoffs with any of these guys, but at least give management a chance to win with a guy they know and feel confident with.

Alot of people do...but I think the Cloutier move will be a good one from the standpoint of giving the team two solid starters during the regular season.

it wasn't a good move, it was more of a side step. It's almost as if it were a hesitated move by DL. If we were gunning for playoffs and the cup, then we should have gone out and acquired a good goalie. If we were not, then we should have just stayed with Garon. instead, we went right down the middle, gave up assets to acquire a mediocre goalie who is going to barely get us into playoffs. What is the point of barely making playoffs? The decision should have come down to either a good goalie who can be our team's backbone or garon, not just one slight cut above our current starter.

as an outsider looking in, for keeper league reasons, does that mean that Cloutier is going to get most of the starts (at least for the first few months)

Cloutier's problems have been highlighted for several years here...

but one thing that usually gets lost in all that is that Cloutier is a *very strong* team player... coaches love him, teammates love him, and has always been considered a strong influence both on and off the ice because of his willingness to stick up for his teammates all the time, and having the attitude of a winner - even if his skills keep him short...

There are very few players in general I've followed that have had as much respect from their teammates despite not being elite in their position... Cloutier is the ultimate team guy and everyone in the lockerrom recognizes that...

that's gotta bring some positives to the Kings - a team with several new pieces and hoping to go in a new direction can always use a personality like him in the dressing room.

Hopefully for the Kings and Cloutier's sake, playing in another market, where every article doesn't question your ability and every reporter isn't looking to use you as a scape-goat, will lead him to better things... but I'd have to say, even with all the negatives often attached to his game, there isn't a single negative with his character and his role as a teammate.. his work ethic, dedication to the team and desire to win has never been in question - and that's probably the biggest reason why Crow has his man-crush on him.

If you believe Crawford, it's going to be a very even split of the games.

I am completly in the camp that is terrified of the idea of Cloutier as the starter..
