What?

Im a Devils fan what makes him so desireable? He cant skate, needs to play with a playmaker (Elias in NJ case) and never posted 50 points

I don't get it. You won't find a single Devils fan that thinks this after watching him every game for years, yet TSN has him at #1.

You know, anyone who has more goals than assists is immediately touted as the next big goal scorer.

It is what it is. As soon as fans stop paying to see the crap product, this will change.

I don't see it happening any time soon.

It's mostly because this year's FA crop is pretty poor.

Clarkson hit the jackpot - he got to FA in a weak year when a lot of teams have money to spend. He's going to rake it in - justifiably or not.

He's a model of player that is tough to acquire if you don't have one already. For teams that are overloaded with softness in their top-6, he's attractive.

That said, he's clearly going to get overpaid. He's had a couple of ideal seasons in a row, that won't continue in a new role.

He has an amazing ability to get in the way of his teammates shots and get credit for the goal.

First line for sure.

Top UFA is Horton, followed by Ribeiro. Both are going to get megabucks.

It's a TSN list, Toews was once listed as the 3rd best player in NHL. I can't wait until the fans of whatever team gets him starts hating on Clarkson

Don't get all the Clarkson hate...have watched him since junior with the Rangers.

He's tough, hits, fights and scores goals...you're right, he sucks.
