Chasing a physical winger on the UFA market would be a priority ahead of trading for Clarkson too.

But I guess if for some reason you hit August, didn't have anybody left to sign in that role as a UFA, had oodles of cap-space remaining... well, maybe. Mind you, by that time the Devils will have their payroll sorted out too, and if LL loves Clarkson so much, I guess there would be no further point to them just dumping him off before camp.
^This. I would have liked Clarkson on our roster two years ago. Now, I think we have other options, and he shouldn't be one of them.
