Not getting him?

 

Powerforwards are a rarity in the "new" NHL.

You think we should over pay a 30 point per year guy for 7 years?

The Owl wants to bet anyone that the Leafs will win the Cup in the next 5 years.

Just look at the Leafs now:

 

Orr, Frazer, McLaren, Clarkson thats 4 guys willing to drop the gloves and cause havok, Leafs are going to have a lot of fun with the Wings they are really tough now :(

 

Lucic set the price for powerforwards, Clarkson IS a powerforward so I am not surprised with the type of deal he got.

Yeah no doubt. It's always the team with the most fighters that win the Stanley Cup.

Leafs have lost their area of strength this year. Last year they were big, strong and fast. They lost McCarther, Grabo, Komorov who were all speed players for them.

 

Leafs will miss the playoffs next year.

This year they are even bigger, stronger who cares about fast? This team is going to be a hell to play against, much like Boston.

Boston are hell to play against because they have a lot of good players.  That some of them are big and tough is just gravy.  People make the same mistake about the 07 Ducks - they were good because they had a lot of good players and had at least 1 HOF defenceman on the ice for 50 minutes a night, not because George Parros was on the 4th line.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Wow...Nonis just entered the "Burke" zone of silly contracts...

 

In 2, or 3 seasons they'll be kicking themselves.

I really don't understand this idea of yours that he's a power forward. He's of unexceptional size, he's slow, he's average in the hits department, and he doesn't possess an excellent shot.

I've been doing some forum-going on the subject; a collective groan has gone up from Leafs Nation at Clarkson's contract, and fans from every other team are laughing at Nonis.

CLarkson striking the iron while it's hot and getting paid. He's a very good 3rd liner nothing more nothing less.

That's a lot of money for him and Bozak lmmfao.

You people who think the "Big Bad East" is going to be problems...you're dumb. It's not going to be any worse than playing the Preds, Ducks or Sharks.

Can't believe the Leafs would decide to get tougher.  

 

Yikes.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Well, they did get Bolland.  

 

Clarkson is a good player.  Not sure if he'll live up to that contract, though.
