Clarkson is not a 30 goal scoring machine and odds of him repeating what he did last year are very slim IMO. He's a 20/20 guy that will also rack up alot of PIM's.

Depending on Clarkson to pick up the slack for the loss of Parise and Sykora was the first mistake Lou made last offseason. Let's just hope he won't reward him for the season he had last year and the start he had this year in fear of losing yet another ****ing pending UFA for free.

One of the things I hate from Lou is that he doesn't know how to maximise the value of his players when they're heading to free agency. I can understand that he'd prefer to keep his pending UFA's for a cup run but there's certain players you can't afford to lose for nothing cause the impact it'll have the following years and the years after that are just too big to recover whitout faceplanting.

We've managed to save face over the years cause we had a pending HOF'er between the pipes and the core of our offense wasn't on the verge of turning 35. Today, we're stuck in a rough spot cause our goaltending isn't at the same level and guys like Elias, despite his solid production, shouldn't be our "go-to-guy" after Kovy.
