I agree with all that. It's just that far too many people around these boards think that Clutterbuck is more than that. His upside basically is a 14 minutes a night third liner who kills about 2 minutes a game while hovering around 30 points a season (with more goals than assists).

Cooke, on the other hand, is a 14 minute a night third liner who kills about 3 minutes a game while hovering around 30 points a season (split evenly). Obviously Clutterbuck's value is more in his physical game, but I think he's gotten a bit mythical in that sense.

Nobody in their right mind expects much more than what he is...but as we've learned over these past 24 hours...there's a lot of people on HFBoards who aren't in their right mind

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
