Cloutier, who had taken last year off due to injuries and, well, not being able to secure a roster spot with any team actually contacted the Wings and asked for a tryout.
Huh. This feels about as treacherous as Todd Bertuzzi playing there. How about Markus Naslund bails on retirement and joins the detested Wings as well? Make it even more of a Canucks reunion. Paging Jyrki Lumme....Mr. Lumme?
Cloutier will have to beat out Chris Osgood AND up-and-come-er Jimmy Howard for a roster spot. At least he can get Niklas Lidstrom to shoot pucks from center ice again at practice and hope that he doesn't let it in. Practice makes perfect, Danny boy!
Did you all hear that Cloutier tried to commit suicide in Vancouver a few years back?
Yeah, he jumped in front of a bus and it went right through his legs!
Hey, in all seriousness, I was a Cloutier-supporter. But I don't wish him well playing for THAT team.
