The Kings have set about to buy out Dan Cloutier, because this wasn't the right situation for him... no wait, it was because he sucked and then tried to blacken the franchise's reputation. Anyway, the Kings put him on waivers and tried to buy him out, but Cloutier is now claiming he is still injured and can thus has to remain with the team. I'm not quite sure why he's making this an issue; if he doesn't get bought out, the Kings will likely put him on long-term IR and he'll get $3 million but he won't get to sign with anyone else. If he's bought out he gets $2 million over 2 years, meaning he'd get more money in the long run. I don't know, I'm confused, but basically Dan Cloutier is a plague.
