The thing is, Clowe is supposed to be much more than a goon. And unlike someone like Prust, Boll, Macleod, Clifford or until recently, Moen and Rupp, Clowe is not a very good defensive player. Like those guys he can battle along the boards or crash the net, but his reputation is based on being a pretty good offensive player. For him to get the kind of money he should get on reputation alone, you want at least Pouliot level production from him.

For him to score 2 goals this year, both in one game, he's not doing enough out there.

If their vitriol towards him is at all warranted, I wouldn't be shocked if he got bought out in the off-season.
He's slowly turning into Scott Gomez 2.0
