2.5 is high for his type of player... but torts developed prust into the player he has become.. he was never like that with Calg and obv he was true blue.. its done and over with we arent getting him back.. Clowe is a player that we envisioned dubi to become.. i know hes been off this year.. but exactly what someone else posted above.. ask the shark fans about the trade, what we're getting in a player, and how they feel about clowe.. bc clowe is to the SJ sharks as Prust meant to the rangers..
we will be pleased.. we need this badly and hes the a short term and long term option!! everyone should be pumped!!
The fact we're comparing Brandon ****ing Prust to this guy goes to show how bad this board has been over the past few months. In ANY world Clowe is and always has been the superior player.
Interested to see what Clowe brings to us.
I'm not say Clowe isn't better - he is on a different level... But the nastiness he will bring. That's where I'm comparing him to Prust. The Rangers have been very timid on the ice to me. Now we add that element - its needed...
Oh you're right... If Clowe can come in and play his game He is better then Prust. But it is the element he brings. That's what this team has missed...
and thats the point thats trying to be made.......toughness and spark plug style play. Thats what is seriously mssing from this team. On top of that, Clowe is 2-3 times more offensively talented than prust.
would love both to have been on this team though. it makes me think that there is another spark plug style player coming to the NYR. Dump pyatt and asham for anther power foward or big nasty D man. Adding some toughness and this team in closer to what it had last season.
Looking forward to seeing what he can do with us. I'm a fan of this if he is resigned. If not, I'm lukewarm, bordering on pissed at Slats for ponying up for a rental when we're just battling to get into the playoffs. But I think he brings exactly what this team has been lacking, even with a down year this year and battling through an injury (which based on what I've read, they think he's gotten over by now??).
he has no goals!!! seriously, hope he can replace some of the stuff we lost with prust. think that was the drive behind this trade. if it works and he resigns it was worth the picks. take it to the bank.
i don't know anything about clowe. and all i'm seeing is videos of him fighting. i assume there's more to him, but the rangers don't need a goon. they need someone to actually step in when an opponent steps over the line. like when someone runs henrik or starts taking pokes at gabby or boards mcdonagh. staged fights are useless. again, i appreciate that clowe is probably that guy, but i'd love to see some video of that. assuming he is that guy, with mcilrath, we'll finally have a team that doesn't get eff'd-with. i hope.
