David Clarkson vs. Wayne Simmonds
 
Both play the same style and coming off career years. Who would you want going forward.

Machinehead 11-19-2012 01:23 AM

Simmonds is 4 years younger and more capable imo of hitting those numbers again than Clarkson is.

I take Simmonds.

I take Simmonds.

For whatever reason I always feel like Simmonds has been around forever but he is only 24 :huh:

Well Simmonds broke in at age 20 whereas Clarkson played his first NHL game 16 days before his 23rd birthday. That explains why Simmonds seems older than he is in this poll.

Simmonds.

I dont expect Clarkson near 30 goals ever again.

InjuredChoker 11-19-2012 03:23 AM

Simmonds, more upside imo and younger though I like Clarkson. I think Simmonds could score even more if he got little stronger. He's legs are thinner than mine.

Screw You Rick Nash 11-19-2012 03:25 AM

Meant to vote for Simmonds. Either or, though, I wouldn't mind having any of them.

Yashintangibles 11-19-2012 03:35 AM

Clarkson has really a good shot, especially since Oates advised him to shorten his stick. He won't ever again hit the 30 goal mark perhaps, I still could see him getting several 20-25 goals seasons. Simmonds, younger and a bit more complete player imo.

Close call, can't decide.

Wayne Simmonds

Habs 4 Life 11-19-2012 08:04 AM

I'd go with Wayne Simmonds

Devils fan voting Simmonds. I love what Clarkson brings, but Simmonds is slightly better at most aspects of their role.

Simmonds is very strong. Skinny calves are more of a genetic trait that an indicator of strength. He's never going to have thick legs; it's not his build.

For the record, I don't see Simmonds consistently scoring much more than 25 goals in his career. For some reason his 28 goals last season seemed very quiet. That said, Clarkson will likely never score 30 goals again either.

Izzy 11-19-2012 08:54 AM

Simmonds very easily

SMantzas 11-19-2012 09:46 AM

Another Devils fan voting for Simmonds. I love Clarkie, but Simmonds is an absolute beast picking up the garbage on the PP. It doesnt hurt having Giroux feeding you pucks either

OzzyFan 11-19-2012 09:59 AM

Simmons game and past year is a lot more repeatable than clarkson's. Not to say Clarkson is a crap player, but Simmonds should be the easy choice here.

Cheddabombs 11-19-2012 10:34 AM

Simmonds hands down.

Le Magnifique 66 11-19-2012 10:48 AM

Don't like him but i'd love Simmonds on my team

I think everyone would. He's a player you hate to play against, but love to have on your side.

Devils Trap 11-19-2012 03:47 PM

Wayne Simmonds

Islanderfan17 11-19-2012 04:54 PM

Definitely Simmonds, a very nice player to have on any team.

laundryman 11-19-2012 05:00 PM

If Simmonds bulks up a bit he'll be legit scary to play against

kingsboy11 11-19-2012 10:07 PM

I still miss simmer. :(

lboogie42* 11-20-2012 02:10 PM

clarkson can be a ****** but usually only to rivals or other goons. simmonds is just a *** who tries to get into it with some of the classiest players out there.
