OK. I don't want you to think I'm assuming the worst for no good reason, but... LOH has been known to have errors and/or to overstate things. Considering Clarke was the center who got the most icetime and had the best defensive reputation, AND Shero said he liked playing MacLeish (the only center without a great defensive reputation!) against Perreault because he was the only one who could skate with him, I do have a hard time believing in Crisp's role as fully as you seem to.
