Guys who can average 20 goals/100 PIMs are a rare breed and he would be a huge upgrade on both our goalscoring from the wing and our team toughness. Very good playoff stats, wears a letter, drops the gloves with anyone...I have a hard time seeing what the downside is, depending on his asking price. He's exactly the kind of player a team like the Habs should target.

Clarkson is a nice fantasy but he constantly gushes about how much he owes to Lamiorello for giving him a shot - he's not going anywhere. And if he did, I guarantee he'd cost more than Clowe.
I wouldn't mind paying 5m per for clarkson, but not for Clowe I guess this is what it comes down to. clowe is making 3.6 and clarkson is making 2.6 ... not saying he's a bad player, just a guy I feel we will overpay for what he gives. I wouldn't pay more than what he earns already (talking bout clowe)
