But even so, there is no reason he should look as awful as he did in the playoffs. He should be providing energy and chipping in a goal here and there, the only thing he contributed was bad penalties.
Clifford was on his way to his highest point totals in a regular season this year (7g/7a) and while it isn't much I don't think it would have been a stretch to have seen him put up 25 points if we would have had an 82 game season.

That said he hasn't become as productive offensively as I thought he would either. He is an example of what can happen when you rush a kid. He is growing into his NHL game and at 22 he still can become a very very good bottom 6er but he needs to take another step forward this coming season.
