Ryane Clowe said that he couldn't get out of his slump last season.
Clowe had a difficult time last season with 17 goals and 45 points in 76 injury-plagued games and hopes to bounce back this season. "I know I didn't have the year I wanted and that's obviously going to affect the team," Clowe said. "I know some other players didn't have the year they wanted. I think guys will be a lot better this year. I now I'll regroup. Mentally I feel better." Look for a big season from Clowe who is in a contract year.
