Hi, my name is Cal Clutterbuck, what am I worth to this team?

My main point is that Clutterbuck would be best playing zero offense, low puck-possession, but physical and shut-down 3rd line. Exactly like the Ducks 3rd line when they won the Cup. That team had decent offense in the top-6, and they're defense was good enough, that any offensive that was chipped in from the bottom-6 was 100% bonus.
On a team like that, Clutterbuck would be immensely valuable. He could hit and score, but his offensive negatives (bad puck possession and skating past the puck to get a hit) would be minimized.
Instead, we have a 3rd line built around Brodziak,
who negates the other team's best lines by eating up huge chunks of time cycling the puck in the offensive zone
, something Clutterbuck can't. And our defense that isn't a shut-down blueline.
