Why would Clowe be on IR? He's practicing with the team.
I don't think they're going to sign Gomez unless he really looks good. And I doubt that 2 guys hang around waiting for contracts - someone like Carter could probably catch on elsewhere if he wanted to.
But I do agree that Brunner is probably history. There's a few teams who need an RW.
you don't remember the annual "Lou's sneaky IR paper move" to begin every season while he's still figuring out the lineup? lol
