If this was his best shot, I'd hate to think how gay bad he looked in the other ones.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Doesn't Clarkson look thinner?  Both here and on the ice, it looks like his face is thinner.  Doesn't seem to have helped his game much though.

 

This is strange, but Wendel Clark would've done the same thing.

I don't know why everyone here is on his case. He's on pace for at least 7 points by April. He also helped them roll out the gate by getting suspended for the first 10 games. Toronto, your hopes have been answered.

I don't call it jumping the shark. I call it players being marketed and sold to the public (albeit it's not done by the team in this case). Clarkson is living the high life in Toronto having an experience he'd never come to having as a Devil.

 

This is something that just rarely happens when these players are Devils.

No matter what pose he still has a dumb look on his face.

 

At least it seems so to me.

True and I hope the new owners and CEO get it through Lou's liver-spotted head that to put more butts in the seats he has got to let up a little with not allowing the players to market themselves a little.

It is kind of funny though that this is their way of marketing him. I remember in all those little Q&A's they used to do here with the players that the guys almost always named Clarkson the worst dressed on the team lol.

Yeah, I have nothing against Clarkson.  It's just a little strange that a fanbase that can't get over itself has this idea that he's this savior. 

 

You've got an emerging star in Van Reimsdyke that you absolutely stole from the Flyers.  I know he's American and all, but there's a lot more hope with him than in Clarkson.

but that's just it, if it goes bad for him in Toronto (which it will), that's a low he wouldn't've experienced here.  Even Rolston never got the boo-bird treatment.  Plus you have to live up to these things - granted, Reimer and Bernier are having great years, but if Bernier did something like this and had a bad year, the fans would say:  Send Jonathan Packing!

I just had to laugh to see Clarkson in "blue velvet."  iirc that was Avery's favorite fabric/color. :huh:

Weren't you the one saying that Clarkson wouldn't have to do much and that he probably wasn't going to get booed, in response to many of us saying he was going to have a difficult time if he didn't produce? 

 

Once the Leaf faithful realize that Clarkson isn't a poor man's Wendel Clark, and that he won't be scoring 25-30 goals for them in any given season (a lot of tremendous puck luck went into that 30 goal campaign), yeah, it will probably start to get ugly for him...but if the Leafs can stay over .500 and competitive, he'll probably get a pass for a while.  But not forever.
