I wish KH had the guts to get rid of (either via trade or buyout) Cleary and/or Miller. Their trade value couldn’t be lower. I would be happy to get a flat spare tire for Cleary at this point. Maybe Miller wants to go play with Ryan in Buffalo…..still, we would get nothing in return.

with our PK running barely over 50% and no points for the bottom 6 and no points for Cleary even with PP time and averaging 16:00 minutes a game.

At this point it’d be nice to get a trade in the bottom 6, even if it’s a lateral trade just to shake up the roster and let the players know they still have to try, the country club isn’t free.  It should only be a country club when we’re winning consistantly.
