Well I’ll start by saying I have been on-board with Clowe for a while now. Overall, I can’t wait to see him as a Ranger.

Some thoughts:

-Last 4 years; 45-60pt pace, roughly 20 goals. No slouch offensively. Good hands, good shot, tough to move from the front of the net.

-3rd on SJ in assists this year.

-Has an “unsustainably low shooting percentage”, for all the advanced stats guys out there.

-By all accounts, he’s pretty banged up. Could have nagging issues this year, but more importantly raises some red flags for giving him a long term extension.

-Which if he is not resigned, makes a 2nd + potentially the first pick of the 3rd round a damn steep price for 15 games.

-Wonder if the tremendous development of three prospects this year made the staff comfortable with losing the picks. In order of surpassed expectations, Lindberg, Nieves, and Fast all made incredible strides.
