I completely agree....I love his game and he should be in the line-up.
I vacillate on Clutter. Terrible shooter and passer, but good energy, creates trouble. The hits thing is over-rated, finishing his check behind the play, when the play is already 20 feet behind you going the other way, is useless.

When surrounded by talented players, his numbers become better. But at the same time, the better players get no benefit from him being on the same line.

Marginal 3rd liner, solid 4th liner. As mentioned before, he could take a page from Tomas Holstrom's book, and become a pest in front of the net. Particularly on the power play. Notice how both goals have come on tips out front this year.

Worth more in trade value this year, than to the Wild over the longer-term.

Mitchell should be playing.
