Those are 2 big things in Clarkson's favour, he can also wake a team up with a goal, fight or a hit. The 2 couldn't be any more different in this regard. One player has intangibles, the other wakes up opposing teams by taking needless dumb hits, that's always been Grabo's MO. No player in the NHL plays the game from the seat of his pants as much as Grabo does.

The similarities are both are strong puck possession players. That's about it.
