Rupp and Asham faced nothing even slightly like the hard-minutes situations Dorsett did, and did worse than him in the scenarios he was in. They don't seem like good comparisons to me at all.

Clarkson might be reasonable. He's not been in the same situations but did much better where he was, so I wouldn't be shocked if he could handle the job.

It's not the skillset or playing style. It's the end results on the ice. DD's in pretty nice company as a result of same.
