Wish the best for him, but didn't see how he was adding any value to the team. Let's call someone up in that roster spot.

Don't know that we will. Just expressing my desire.

I hope he goes somewhere that has a every night spot for him - he deserves that - but I doubt anyone does. Otherwise, he's probably better off staying here and not having to move.

RELEASE THE KRAKKEN. No release him we need the roster spot.

I think this is more on Clune than MCG

Confirmed by Jim Diamond and Bob McKenzie via Twitter. Hate to see it, but pretty much expected it.

I wouldn't say he "deserves" to be an every night player. On what merit? he's a nice guy?

He's a great fighter, but a terrible hockey player. What team is carrying a player like that and playing them every night?

Staged "enforcer fights" are dying out, and I'm happy for it. Even Trotz said that it made no sense to play him because no one will fight him--because the only guys he would conceivably fight are all similarly in the minors or in the pressbox.

Jordin Tootoo, Ryan Reaves, Derek Dorsett...these guys aren't going to fight McGrattan, so Clune works for that purpose (although I wouldn't mind having someone in that role that can also play on the PK or something useful, as well)

Bad wording on my part. I mean that McG seems like a good guy, and I'd love to see him get playing time somewhere, not that he deserves a roster spot from a talent perspective. Maybe he even prefers being scratched so he isn't getting beat up, I don't know

Trading for scott ford and now having him in the minors is one of the better things to happen for the organization off ice. Gives the young guys someone to learn from bad life choices to cleaning up to just how to be a good pro if they make it.

Oh...I guess I meant he'll clear and be called up if there's a 4th liner injury.

I wish he would play more for us to add a physical presence on nights when we might need it. AKA Belak but admittedly Clune has become more useful than I figured he would be.

It's sort of a catch-22 with these guys. He shouldn't play because he's regressed, but he likely regressed because he wasn't playing. Sucks to see him officially gone but his type is a dying breed anyway.

I think he was too good at what he did. Nobody out there to fight him at most games.

Oh well. If someone would go with him he would be worth keeping. Admittedly, Clune is playing fairly decent.

I wonder if he will play in milwaukee or if the preds will treat him with dignity like they did Belak and pay him and let him travel with the NHL club, yet knw there is no chance of him playing.

i think he's in Milwaukee for good. Belak was understood to be retiring at the end of that season.

He needs to work with Clune. I have yet to see Clune win a fight much less look like he knows what he is doing.

Clune is going to have to stop trying to fight true fighters, he's not an enforcer, he's a pest.

Clune v Fiddler - that's probably what Richie needs to be thinking. Guys in our Div - Toots, Boll, Dorsett, etc - they gonna' kill him.
