Even in 73 was Clarke that much better than say Rick MacLeish compared to a 101 point Orr to Phil's 130?
Orr was a plus 56 that year, the next best on hi team was surprise his D partner Dallas Smith at plus 38.
Clarke won 3 Harts yes but we should never confuse that to guys who never won and were every bit as valuable to their team, ie a Detroit guy who didn't make the cut this round.
Lots of players are as valuable or even more valuable to their team and they never get near a Hart.
