Wow, and I mean no disrespect to Clarke or anything but there is no way I'd pass up Jagr for Clarke. Clarke over Forsberg? Sure. But Clarke's two way game still does not make up for the tantalizing talent of Jagr. There are some players who were so good on the offensive side of the game that they can be forgiven for not being elite defensively. Jagr fits this bill. He elevated the play of his teammates. He took the Pens further in the playoffs than they deserved. He scored 127 points with Straka and Barnes. He was impossible to knock off the puck, he was a much better goal scorer than Clarke, in fact it isn't even close. If you said he was a better playmaker I would likely agree with that as well.
