Stalberg is like Booth without the size - low IQ player with great wheels. Clarkson is interesting but like you said - it will take an overpay to acquire him. Definitely not worth it. Valuable player that will never be worth the price.
Stalberg is technically free to acquire compared to Booth and even another 3/4D (if that is the best return for Hemmer and our 1st) is better than another 5/6. Marginally better off is not worse off.
