He looks really slow, his production has been on the decline and he honestly just looks like a 30 year old with a lot of miles on him.. and now he possibly has a concussion?

IF the guy is able to play these playoffs and be a huge factor I might reconsider my position about him.... I just don't see it happening.
Clowe has NEVER been fast. This is the way he plays. Again, people see him and try to compare him to Nash or Callahan or Hagelin. That is not his game. He skates like many other big power forwards around the league who are not superstars. Ryan Malone is a great example.

8 points in 12 games and the team made the playoffs. The team has played noticeably better since he was acquired (granted others were added as well). The team has been tougher to play against as well.

Sticking with my 3-4 year contract for 3-3.5 million/season. He fits this team and he fills a couple of major holes.
