In 2002-2003, only had 10 points less than Getzlaf on the Hitmen:
Also about doubled his points last year. Could be a late bloomer who is putting it together.

Clifford didn't bloom until the second half of his second season in the OHL, but he's blossomed into a power winger who can skate, drop the gloves and pop the occasional goal. He's a legitimate tough guy who skates quite well for a big man and has enough skill to play a regular shift. Lots of teams are laying in the weeds on this kid and somebody will get an itchy trigger finger early in the second round for fear that another club will jump up and grab him.

They seem kinda the same to me, maybe Clifford fights more, but so will Simmonds, still not sold on this pick. I know character blah blah blah, maybe we could of gone with more skill with the pick if players of the same caliber or close to the same caliber can be picked up like Segal was.
