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.
Yeah my feelings exactly. I'm sure there will be a GM willing to give him $4 million and hope he turns it around in his new team. Wilson would be stupid to match it.

I think Wilson will keep him until the end of the year, then let him go via FA. If we need a PWF, Wilson might sign a lesser one ie. Smyth
