Clark might be a good defensive player, but he's not more valuable than Parrish if we're talking peak, prime, or career.
We're talking about who the better or worse player is/was. I judge players based on the full spectrum of their game. I consider play in all three zones.

I don't care that Parrish could score goals better then Clark as in my mind that does not make him the better player. Clark was better in the defensive zone and the neutral zone. The fact he scored 30 goals in a season proves he could play in the offensive zone as well. Parrish was weak in the defensive zone specifically and wasn't very effective in neutral zone play.

I said nothing about who was a better player "now" other then to disprove another poster about a comment he made about it.

I would take Clark over Parrish 10 out of 10 times.
