I remember this video quite well - it was on HNIC. I recorded this video among many other highlights and showed it to a non-hockey fan friend of mine. This video made him a Leafs fan and a Wendel Clark fan.
Clark's a guy who we sit back and wonder "what if?" What if he didn't have the back problems? To say that he played like "a bull in a china shop" is an understatement.
Like Scott Stevens, Clark's a guy who you would have sworn was at least 6'4", 220 lbs. (Stevens was listed at anywhere from 6'-6'2", and 200-215 lbs). Clark? 5'11", 197 lbs. But he had great strength and no fear. Beat Bob Probert in a fight in 1991. I believe he was injured later in the game. And Clark may have had the best wrist shot in the last 20 years. An absolute bullet. On those rare occasions of good health in his prime, he was a dominant force, one of the best goals-physical play combos in the league.
Clark is one of my favorite players. His fight with McSorley is what I remember the most. One of the best series I have ever watched. It's too bad that hockey isn't played like that now. There was so much emotion, which is lacking in today's game.
