Macleish was a playoff Monster. you will get no argument from me there. In fact, Macleish was better in the playoffs than Jagr ever was. Such a formidable clutch two way forward.
Parent was also a playoff Monster in his peak. No argument from me. His 2 Smythe's speak for themselves. Better than Jagr ever was.
Leach is somewhat of a darkhorse. He had 1 spectacular playoff run better than anything Jagr ever did. The only forward to ever win the Smythe on a losing team.
But I would still take Clarke's shutting down of opposing teams top lines and PK presence on my team while providing very good offense in the playoffs if I were drafting. Not to mention his Heart and soul leadership, tenacity, and willingness to do anything to win.
Granted I do rank Jagr slightly ahead. But let's not try to sell Clarke short here.
