Rich Clune’s Days With Nashville Are Numbered

Last week, both Viktor Stålberg and Rich Clune were placed on waivers. At the time it didn’t seem like anything to crazy. That appears not to be the case anymore:

Clune’s contract with the Nashville Predators ran through the upcoming 2015-16 season. As far as the waiver wire went – no one claimed either of the two but I’d go as far to say that Clune’s contract would have been an easier pill to swallow than Stålberg’s. Turns out it’s so easy that Nashville will send Clune packing.

If this turns out to be the case it will be sad for both players and fans in both Nashville and Milwaukee. There is no denying what Clune adds to a team: energy. He became an immediate fan favorite upon his arrival in Milwaukee and I’m sure the same will be said the moment he finds a new home.

Thoughts on the Nashville Predators potentially buying out the last year of Rich Clune’s contract? Is it smart business on Nashville’s part?

  1. Definitely a smart move. He may have been energetic, but I would prefer to watch a forward prospect who is honing skills and can add more to the games. Last season the Ads had too many bruisers. One is fine for the AHL. You’re going to have a hard time finding employment in the NHL anymore in that role.
