Dan Cloutier Update

OK lets get everyone caught up on this situation. The Kings bought out Cloutier's contract and released him. Cloutier then filed a grievance saying he was still injured. That would nullify the buy out and Cloutier would remain on the Kings roster and would continue to be paid if a doctor concluded that he was still in fact injured. 2 Kings doctors said Cloutier was NOT injured and was cleared to play. Cloutier then found a private doctor that said he was still injured and is not in playing condition. So that put the buy out on hold. Thats where we have been for a few weeks now.

UPDATE. The league has agreed that Cloutier's buy out stands. So officially Cloutier is off the Kings roster and they do not have to pay his salary. A arbitrator is still going to address this situation but that is just a formality and Dan Cloutier is officially a UFA. Any takers?

If anyone wants Cloutier, they're stupid b/c he is one of the worst goalies in the NHL, period.

Haha, but he's injured, or so he claims. If he's injured how can he expect to be signed?
