Agree. I don't mind this player. We'll lose Oduya (likely), while adding Clitsome. He's small, and it doesn't help us get any tougher on defense, but Oduya isn't overly physical anyway so, pretty equal move in that department.
I wouldn't call him small... he is 5'11 but he's like 215 so he's built like a brick, umm poo house

As a former CBJ fan, I can say this is a good pick-up. Makes even more sense if Oduya is on his way out. Clitsome can easily slot into Oduya's spot. Similar players, but Clitsome is better at getting shots through.
This is good to know, someone who has followed Clitsome and understands how he plays.
This is actually exciting! Good trade and subsequent pickup.
I was wondering who might be the first to point out a potential nickname for Clitsome...but given the way some of the players nicknames have come about I too would suspect the same.
I heard him on the radio this afternoon and one thing that really stood out for me was how excited he was to come to play in Winnipeg. He played in the here during the Jet's first pre-season game and he was blown away by the atmosphere. He's also excited about being in a play-off race (naturally).
I suspect we'll continue to hear more about how players are excited at the chance to play in Winnipeg in the coming years. Go Jets Go!
