Neither Stepan nor Zuccarello are Gorton-type players, and they have both been huge parts of the Rangers great end to the season.
I may be way off; but I get the feeling that Gorton would want to sign Clowe and Clarkson only to let Zucc go, which would be a terrible decision.
Even a premier player of that type like Milan Lucic has to be put in the right environment to succeed, and even then is quite inconsistent. Smart players like Step and Zucc can succeed no matter what. Bergeron, Krejci, and Marchand are the heart of Boston's forward corps, not Lucic and Horton.
