Interesting. Clifford just cleared waivers today so I imagine he's probably Marlies bound here. But now he gets to play with the Marlies instead of whatever the Springfield Thunderbirds are. Blues probably doing him a bit of a solid here.

He's in the last year of his deal with a $1mil AAV, so no cap hit if he's assigned to the Marlies.

Leafs are doing him and St Louis the solid.
Let's see if the Leafs claim Brooks tomorrow.

I always forget...lets say the Leafs claim Brooks back.  They can send him to the AHL right away because he went through waivers and came back to us....if we wanted to call him (or Clifford) up they don't go through waivers again for how long before waivers apply again.

Cap hit can be completely buried, so, just added 4th line depth for nothing. Works for me. Only real drawback is that he takes up a reserve list spot, but the team has a little wiggle room there.

I thought he was fine on the fourth line last year.  I'm down with it.

Edit:  year before last.

Dubas definitely traded for him to ensure he doesn’t take out Mrazek (again)

"Now Jack, we can give you $5 million a year, but you wouldn't want to see us have to ship your good friend Kyle to Siberia, would you?  That wouldn't happen if you signed for $3 million a year.  I mean it's totally your choice, but before you make a decision, think of Kyle's cat."
