A multi-year deal with a cap hit of of around $4 million could very well end up being a bad contract if he doesn't bounce back offensively.
Yeah, if we knew we were getting a Clowe in his prime who would score 20 goals and bring toughness, etc. then I could see the $4m/per but I'm pretty worried that his offense is gone and not coming back.

Agree with the earlier poster who commented that Clowe's looking like he has a lot of miles on him at this point.

If Kreider had emerged as the top 6 winger we thought we were getting, I'm not sure that Clowe as a Ranger even happens in the first place, let alone the consideration of signing him to multiple years..
