07:26 AM ET 06.19 | When the Wild acquired Jason Pominville this past April, it seemed a buyout this offseason would be in store for veteran Dany Heatley. But on the same day the Wild traded for Pominville, Heatley tore the labrum in his left shoulder. He underwent surgery five days later and was given a four- to six-month recovery time. That timetable is significant because an injured player cannot be bought out. ... Cal Clutterbuck is a potential restricted free agent and might be on the trading block, as are defenseman Tom Gilbert and center Zenon Konopka. Gilbert, who had 13 points and was minus-11 in 43 games last year, also is a compliance buyout candidate. Buying him out for two-thirds of his $3 million salary would clear $4 million off the books.

Come to TOR, Cal. He would be a great replacement and improvement over Leo the Lion.

Otis, do you really want a guy whose name reminds you of a hoarder deer?

"Cal Clutterbuck is a potential restricted free agent and might be on the trading block.."

The Oilers should trade for him. Put him on Taylor Hall's line to teach him proper kneeing technique so he won't get penalized or suspended. ;-)

A segment of the fans down here (hint - redneck) would be in favor of such a thing...
