08:19 AM ET 02.28 | Not only is Ryane Clowe still without a goal in 2013, but he's also missed time under NHL suspension. On Wednesday at HP Pavilion, Clowe was skating on the wing with Michal Handzus and Andrew Desjardins on what could probably be considered the fourth line. ... [Coach Todd McLellan] was asked if the big winger would have to work himself back into a top six role. "I don't think Ryane Clowe should lose his top six role because of a suspension, when he got involved to defend a teammate. You shouldn't lose your spot in the lineup that way," McLellan said. "With that being said, we liked how the lines have played up front, creating more scoring opportunities. We have to do what's right for the team."

It's not a good thing when you're below Scott Gomez on the depth chart.

That's gotta sting... below Gomez? Jeez... I'd almost consider walking away at that point :P

Either way, you have to be a team player in this situation until you either make a case for yourself on ice or wait for injuries to strike... I prefer the former, because that way you a proving your right to the top lines by your play, and not the situations faced by your club.

How could I resist Danny? This guy is one consonant away from Clown.

As a Sharks fan I was looking for a way to petition Shanahan to suspend him for 20 games instead of 2. Clowe has been terrible all year. He is one of the slowest skaters in the NHL. I described him as "Ryan Clowe - the stick where an offensive rush goes to die".
