He scored almost all those 15 goals in the first half half of a half season, then disappeared. By your logic then he is really a 60 goal scorer. At most I would expect him to score 10-15 goals a season and we have plenty of guys who do that. We need consistent 30+ goal scorers.
Exactly what I was going to counter with. He got ridiculously hot for a while after the lookout ended then disappeared for the rest of the year (especially when the team needed him to score down the stretch).
I think Clarkson's a great person, he did a lot of great off-ice stuff for the fans and charities. But he's not the kind of player the Devils need going forward.
