Prust got 2.5. Clowe @ 3.5 is the better investment.
I am not saying just give him whatever. What I am saying is that for how unique of a player he is, these injuries do not concern me. He is not 35.
People are writing him off because we can't afford to invest money in players who look like they're breaking down. Point production is the kind of thing that separates Clowe from the Prusts of the world. If he's not scoring 50 points a year, why not target a guy who will give you 30 points but is younger, cheaper, and has the speed to keep up with the game?
If he wants a one or two year deal to prove he's healthy, fine, but I'm not comfortable with 3+ years.
