That allows Toronto to increase their skill level in the process and maintain a similar level of toughness.
Yes I do not want to take away from toughness, but dressing two goons on the 4th line allows them only 5mins of ice time.
By adding clarkson to the top 9, we can dress someone with more skill for the 4th line and give it the ability to play 10 mins.
