You're giving Clowe's skill level an awful lot of credence by putting him in the same sentence as Jagr, even if you arent directly comparing their skills.

I dont think its so much the skating. I think its that injuries are used as an excuse for his lack of production over the past year or two, and I also think its because guys without a lot of mileage on them dont usually get knocked silly by skating into an elbow pad.
