Leafs should pass on both of these guys as they'd regret those contracts very shortly after.
Horton has a bad concussion history.
Clarkson has only had two good offensive seasons (with a lot of powerplay time I might add) and most players of his style quickly see their games fade around 30 because of the wear and tear it takes on their body.
I'd rather the Leafs sign one of Morrow, Cleary, Higgins, Jagr or McDonald to a one to two year deal max leaving the team with lots of roster flexibility and not potentially locked into a bad contract for an extended period of time.
isn't this why the Leafs signed Connolly?
Clarkson brings so much more to a team then just stats and if this team has any hope of competing in the playoffs then they'll need players like Clarkson
