Again, I'll say it one more time: Clowe is not really like Lucic

They play a different style. If I had to grade Clowe as one type of player, I would probably say Playmaker, because Power Forwards are considered dude who drive nets, run goalies, and stand in front of the net in the power play. Clowe does not do those things, and I don't know anybody who's been calling him the Milan Lucic of the west. I don't know if I'd call him better than Lucic but they're close. (Lucic is kinda overrated IMO even though he's one of my favorite non-Sharks) Clowe is a playmaker who happens to also be very physical, forechecks hard, and is willing to fight. In addition, his drive to win, his toughness, his work ethic, his willingness to put himself in the way of his teammates, and his love for the game? Up there with the best.

He's easily my favorite non-Shark now AINEC.
