This is essentially how I see it.

One thing you could add as well is durability: easily Linden. While I do think per game averages have their places, when you have similar level players it's hard not to give the edge to a guy who didn't miss a game during his best six year stretch.

You could probably add that Clark was also one of the few players that provided a tangible intimidation factor, but Linden was no slouch physically either.
