what book should DL read to motivate Dan...

.. there was a thread early in the season that had DL challenging Fro that he'll read the book "WAR" if Fro stepped up his play this season and be more consistent.. and it worked!!!.. now im wonderin what book should DL read to challenge Dan "i dont have a" Cloutier and motivate his play.. or make him retire early.. my guess, DL should read "How not to get suckered into giving a 2yr. extension to a goalie who only played 11 games the previous year and hasnt played a single game this year for dummies." thoughts anyone???

Goaltending for Dummies.

Oh crap, a similar joke was made in the OP.

Les Misérables, since Cloutier's numbers and contract are both miserable?

Lombardi read War and Peace to try and understand Russians/Frolov. He didn't bet him to do anything.

Perhaps Cloutier is a topic that has become irrelevant. He is on IR. He is not playing. He likely will not play for the rest of the year. Management has acknowledged their mistake and everyone gets that he has been a disaster this year.

Do I feel for the guy? Yes. I do. He doesn't want to an ineffective goaltender. Nobody knows (I would hope) more than him just how badly he has played this year.

Finally, do any of us want Dan to be a failure? One would think all of us would hope that he comes back and becomes an effective goaltender and helps the Kings win. As unlikely as that may be, we are stuck with him so we might as well hope for the best, not beat the dead horse that is his season.

Poor Dan. He was a very capable goaltender in his years in Vancouver. I dont know what happened to him.

OT, but is Cloutier on LTIR?

The requirement is that the player is expected to miss 24 days/10 games. I'm guessing that he's on LTIR?

Clouts.

It's too bad that such a likable guy has had his career go down the tube so fast.

He doesn't have the Vancouver media always setting a fire under his ass anymore.
