He may have the size and will fight every once in awhile, but he doesnt go to the tough spots on the ice.

Over the last few years, it looks like he tries to emulate Thornton on the side boards. He likes to bring the puck down the wing, he pulls up and gives the opposing D time to get their body on him. Clowe either isnt strong enough or doesnt have the hands (more likely) to give himself space and make a reasonable pass. He tends to lose the puck and lately he is losing his balance a lot and ends up on the ice. He doesnt really fit with the puck possession game that our top 6 plays, but at this point, there really isnt anyone else that does.

I doubt he will be re-signed at this point. Some team out there will throw a stupid contract out there and DW isnt going to match it.
