Clifford is an exceptional young two way player who not only has a great physical aspect to his game but also is a clutch performer as he has proven during his limited playoff exp over the past couple of seasons as well during the regular season.
If the Canucks hadn't put a pile of human excrement into their line up in the first round of last years playoffs Clifford would have shown the rest of the hockey world again what Kings fans have known about him since he came up with the big club.
He is a very valuable young player who is very solid in his own end and the neutral zone and a very good agitator to boot. His primary drawback is that he is a middleweight brawler but tends to want to fight like a heavyweight and that has caused him to pick up a couple of injuries.
The kid is nails and if you watch him play enough you can't help but see his value.
That said MPS is still a great young prospect with allot of speed and still could develop into a top six winger with speed given time.
It isn't a terrible deal but I can see why both teams would balk at it for a bit.
