This. But this doesn't even tell the whole story.
Already did a thread polling the entire negative ass LGW world and couldn't even get more than 25% to say yes. Granted I got called out on that one stating that Kenny Holland and Jim Nill do not look at LGW and if they did would probably want to shoot themselves with some of these insane ideas/trades. Clears is a warrior. Brings waaay more to the table that a 100% Eaves/Miller couldn't match if they wanted to and its just plain fact in talent. He has an incredible to create even with said lack of stick skill and or hands. He just goes balls out every single shift regular season or playoffs it doesn't matter. He demands respect simply on play and play alone and not to mention when a guy like Cheli recommends a dude, something has to be there. And as we have seen over the past 4 years the guy has done nothing but give his all. I realize there are countless guys that bust ass night in and out and I am not saying Clears is on his own with that. But give him this year, a 100% Clears brings way beyond what anybody else thinks. See 09 playoffs. Torn meniscus. Now I know I haven't torn anything in my life but he played through it and yeah he was unnoticeable. But lets think before automatic trade thoughts please.
