there is almost no comparison between beagle and zubrus. zubrus was/is a skilled player. he is a top 6 forward no matter how you slice it. clark proved that playing on a line with some skill that with his speed and grit that he had enough hands to finish with some regularity. he lost that when he lost his speed advantage.

neither beagle nor crabb had elite speed that clark did.

my take on ovechkin with beagle and crabb is all about ovechkin not wanting to play right wing. he got moved to beagle when i pushed oates to move him back to the left. oates has said that he still thinks ovechkin is a right wing. i would not be surprised that we dont see ovechkin permanantly moved back to backstrom til he is willing to play rw with the same enthusiasum as he played on lw with him yesterday
