That this is even a debate is absurd.

Clarkson's production last year was inflated by getting big PP time compared to past years and having a significantly higher shooting % than he has ever had. More than one third of his production came from PP pts. He was the king of garbage goals last year (yes, goals are goals - but are we really going to make this mistake again? Gomez's production was inflated by garbage goals on NJ's PP too...). In Clarkson's best year, he only barely kept pace with Clowe's worst year. And on top of all of that, he does not have the vision or playmaking skills that Clowe does. In terms of physicality they're probably pretty even. You can't even say that he is significantly younger -- he is just 6 months younger. What a joke.
Clarkson will never score close to 30 again, I'd be surprised if he get much over 20 ever again.

The Marty chant has caused devils fans to cry tears of frustration, and that has caused me to cry tears of laughter!

Exactly. Remember, Brian Boyle had a 20 goal season, too. He fell back to Earth.

Richards has really picked up his game. Couldn't have picked a better time.

New season. Clean slate. All the mean, bad things I have said about this team no longer apply. LET'S DO THIS!!

First star - The 1st line. Stepan and Callahan are beautiful together everywhere on the ice. They had a magnificent first shift to set the tone of the game and could have scored 3 more times.

2nd star - The 2nd line. The passes by Richie and Zuccs were gorgeous. Love having two great passers setting up our best shooter.

3rd star - Hank with the shutout!

man, some of you guys are as obsessed with the Devils as much as you say their fans are with us...

and Clowe was at one point a much better player than Clarkson. That is no longer the case, Clarkson is the better player currently, not by much but it is at least debatable.

Clowe or Clarkson? How about neither?

Big, slow, streaky scorers that get overrated because they throw a check every once in a while.

Go after Pascal Dupuis if he reaches UFA instead.

Agreed, but look at who we have in management. They put emphasis on toughness, **** and vinegar types.

One of Clowe/Clarkson will get overpaid by this management.

Considering we're paying so much money to Brad Richards and Nash, and in the past Gabby, i'm going to disagree that there's an emphasis on those guys.

Besides Cally, our entire top 6 (Hags-Step-Zuke-Nash-Richie) are skill/finesse guys.

Those two have been pure money when they're together. If we keep up this level of offensive and defensive play, we're going to **** off alot of people in the playoffs

The reason why Clowe's a more dangerous player in the O zone is because of his offensive IQ. Clarkson is as dumb as a brick. Clowe can play with anyone ranging from Thornton, to Brassard, Zuccarello, or Richards.

I keep watching the highlights, because watching the $100m man be lazy is so funny

Kovy was the worst player on the ice today. And I am usually of the opinion that he's the best winger in the game. But he was brutal today. I'd be pissed if I were Kershaw.

People **** on Gaborik for being lazy at times. Imagine Kovy played for Rangers.

It's always fun beating Devils plus it's good to avoid Pens. That team scares me. If we want to get out of East there is a good chance we'll have to go through Pens but I'd rather do it later.

Just finished watching the game on my DVR.
Nice way to head for the Playoffs.
Deboer stated how much his guys were going to play hard. So why didn't Bordeur play. Maybe he didn't want to worsen his won loss record against Lundgvist.

Isnít it great watching the games on NBC. A record amount of times weíre told how much the Devils didnít come to play. We get to see Milbury in between periods. I so glad he explained that Nash was just pushed on that non-call. Now I understand. Wasnít that great at the end of the game, seeing all the Rangers at center ice getting ready to give their Jerseys away and sure enough they break away to Milbury. I wish I could watch all the Playoff games on MSG.

Not sure if they showed it on tv, but from where I was sitting, pretty sure Torts and Deboer shook hands after the game, nice gesture by both.
