Clowe is someone that the Rangers NEED in their lineup...and not for just his scoring. The Rangers have MORE than enough guys that can put the puck in the net. He is needed for his "jam", his competitiveness and heart that left this team with Dubi and Prust. When you factor in that this guy is ALSO a possible 50-60 point player, and can fight with the absolute best of them in the NHL, this is a very versatile and rare player to come across. The Rangers got this guy when he is coming off an injury and upcoming UFA and his stock is at an all time low. I think a lot of Ranger fans will be VERY pleasantly surprised when they watch this guy play night in and night out.
Spot on, there has been lots of negativity around because of the season the boys are having. This is shaping up to be a scary team when the bottom 6 gets upgraded. Nobody will want to play against us and that's what I want, not some freakin draft picks, we're not rebuilding, this move is perfect.
