At best you'll get another 3-4 defenseman to share the role played by Smid-Petry. This player will struggle in a top-pairing role the same way Smid/Petry have and we'll become marginally better off.

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.
How is Stalberg like Booth without the size. Stalberg is 6'3" and 210lbs. Booth is more aggressive but he also has major concussion issues which is a concern for someone who plays rather recklessly.
