08:33 AM ET 11.09 | Ryane Clowe sure has kept busy this extended offseason -- from Vail to Texas to San Jose. Now, he's an official member of the ECHL's San Francisco Bulls, but won't suit up for either of their games this weekend at the Cow Palace. Instead, he's practicing with the first-year squad, hoping to stay in tip-top shape. ... Clowe's reasons for not playing just yet are numerous, not the least of which is the 30-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer. Considering his aggressive nature, in-your-face style of play, a concussion suffered last season, and the possibility that a hulking, low-level minor leaguer might want to target an established NHL forward, and Clowe may be better served watching from the press box.

Nope. I'm too distracted looking at the report that Gruden might be the Eagles next head coach.

So what they are saying is that he doesn't know how to take care of himself on the ice!

Damn. Another comment gone. And I just mentioned how he was similar to a young cat.
