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.
Agree 100% but I wish it wasn't true. Love the guy when he's a rampaging gorilla on the ice. Just doesn't happen very often . He will get a sick offer in ufa that no one will believe and his sharks career will be over. I hope for the sharks sake they trade him sooner than later for a young player that might develop into a pf. For slow and big body on the lower lines (where clowe belongs right now) I prefer Zeus with his screens, defensive play and 99% face off percentage.
