Ok, A. Cloutier is coming off injury. Who knows if he will ever be the same guy he was with the Canucks when he won 30 games. B. Nothing is promised to Cloutier this year, he has to earn his way. C. He might be in Manchester, who the hell knows. Like I said in my earlier post, there will be competition, if he can prove himself to be a quality goaltender then great. Kings would be thrilled with just a consistent goaltender. Avs have Budaj who isn't too shabby at all and they are going to be pretty competitive this year with Smythe and Hannan (who I wanted over Stuart).
