Cloutier may miss the rest of the season

According to the Los Angeles Times, Dan Cloutier is facing an extended period of rest or season ending surgery on his hip. He has been out of action since December 23rd with the hip and knee injuries. His knee injury is apparently tendonitis. Cloutier will meet with team officials to determine the best course of action.
Cloutier's absence could free up about $3.1 million in salary for the Kings. Dan the Man has not performed well in LA this season with a 3.98 GAA and a .860 save percentage, which is the worst in the NHL.

Somewhere in America, thousands of Kings fans are breathing a sigh of relief. Somewhere in British Columbia, thousands of Canuck fans are laughing!

I heard that Cloutier is in mental disarray and had tried to commit suicide in Hollywood last week. He jumped in front of a bus and it went right through his legs!

Alright, here is the comment that HOCKEYINJUN is referring to:

"Both of you need to get your heads examined! Mike Wall is probably the most fit player on the ducks with only a 4% body-fat ration under Giguere with 6%. With todays ever evolving game, goalies need to be quicker and more agility/explosive driven to compete at the NHL level. The pictures you are showing look like apples and oranges, not apples and apples! Anyways Ill keep in touch more on this!PS. Nice site but Sean " Zandstorm" quit swearing man, use some stonger words for your vocabulary. You sound like a 11 year old indian boy with a bad chip on his shoulder. ( I'm aloud to say that as im native too!)"

So the 4% body fat must be in his head then! I would need to see Wall and Martin Brodeur stand side-by-side before I judge your theory any closer.
I attribute a bit of Wall's record to how the Ducks played in front of him, yes. But this isn't the Arturs Irbe NHL anymore. This is not the Kirk Mclean NHL either. Smaller, more agile goalies with less equipment are becoming obsolete.
Mike Wall reminds me of Dany Sabourin in stature, and unless he has the luck and skills of Dominik Hasek, he may not be successful in the NHL looking that small.
I was just saying that he needs to bulk up his padding and cheat a little. When he goes down in the butterfly, there is WAY too much open net available in the top shelf.
In some ways, it reminds me of Felix Potvin's undoing.
Injun, are you a church-boy? Is my swearing offending you?
Remember, there is a difference between 'do-ers' and 'talkers'! :)
I look forward to your reply!

Ah, fuck the fucking fuckers.

Mike Wall will have a good career in the NHL, but most goalies take a couple of years at least to figure out their shit. I mean, when was the last goalie drafted that made a huge impact on his team in his rookie year? And I mean Roy-like impact.

Dammit all anyways.
M'heh.

It isn't worth comparing a new goalie to Patrick Roy.
You could argue that Raycroft and Theodore had big rookie campaigns. Should we compare Wall to them?

I sense a bit of drunkedness in your typing!

Dammit, Zan! I'm going to the game on the 26th :( I really wanted to see him play.

Stupid Cloutier. It's like he's made out of Forsberg.

He's got Forsberg's injury-prone body and Red Light Rasico's abilities!!
