His defense was no longer enough to make up for his other deficiencies and he was terrible in the '82 WHC's, so much so that his regular linemate Barber was moved and played superbly with the Great One.
In that case, why didn't Dionne play in game 3 and Clarke did?

I agree that the Clarke of 1981 wouldn't have made the 1981 CC team any stronger.
