The term "1st liner" has so many interpretations.

Does it mean playing on the top line? Zubrus is a 1st liner by those standards.

Does it mean finishing top 3 on your team in scoring? Clarkson is a 1st liner by those standard.

Does it mean having a perceived skillset of a typical top NHL player? Neither Zubrus nor Clarkson are 1st liners by those standards.

30 goals is 30 goals no matter what line you're on. Clarkson plays the style of a 3rd liner, but seems to be capable of scoring like a top line winger. He's okay in my book.
