Nashville Predators forward Rich Clune has spent the bulk of his career in the AHL and other lower levels of hockey, but he apparently feels he has done enough to make some fairly detailed contract demands. Cluney signed a two-year, $1.7 million extension with Nashville earlier this week. Based on the photo above that he tweeted on Thursday, it appears he was a tough negotiator.
Clune was drafted by the Dallas Stars in 2007 and traded to the Los Angeles Kings the following year, so that might help explain why he wants the city of Dallas to worship him. He has not exactly been successful at the NHL level, so I doubt the Stars are disappointed they dealt him.
As for point No. 2, Clune has a history of fighting drug and alcohol addictions that have made his NHL career an uphill climb. And the other two demands — well, those are pretty self-explanatory.
Clune scored four goals and tallied five assists in 47 games with the Predators last season. The 26-year-old knows he does not deserve to be worshipped by anyone, which is why the list is a joke. In my opinion, it’s a pretty damn funny one.
