I don't think he's a diver I just think he sucks at skating...


I'm not gonna say sucks at skating because he's strong on the boards when there's something to hold him up...he's just weak on his balance control.

no he's clearly embellishing some plays and then starring at the refs with his intense/crazy look.

but to be honest he's been giving me a hard time not to love him with last year and this year but i don't want to just jump on the bandwagon like an hypocrite after calling him out for years lol he's slowly growing on me tho haha

I want Clarkson locked up long term. In my mind hes exactly the type of player i want as a Devil. Always gives it everything, sticks up for his teammates, scores goals and creates plays and is a good ambassador off the ice. Hes just a likable guy. Lock him up Lou.

Quite honestly, my first memories of Clarkson are him scoring in one of the games when he was called up because of a series of injuries on the team (it was in March, a few season ago obviously). I was really impressed with his scoring touch there, LOL. So, I was kinda disappointed when he seemingly turned into a not-so-productive goon for a while. I'm glad Petey D. was able to get the best out of him, Clarkie has been nothing short of amazing for us this year and last year, with all the goals, energy and getting under the opponents' skin when necessary. Tough not to like this guy (if you're a Devils fan, of course. Other teams' fans must love to hate him and that's good). Especially after that epic PureHockey commercial this year. :D

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

If we want to keep him, thats probably what its going to take, espc if he keeps up his scoring. Add that to last year's performance 4-4.5 is not a stretch at all.

Then he'll be outta town real quick. He is essentially Lucic Lite (3/18 extension kicking in next year) and will be paid as such. If you have a power forward who can fight and score at his level, you have to hang on to him. Vancouver traded Cody Hodgson to get who they think is the next Lucic/Clarkson.

 

If we get him at 5/25 as sundstrom suggests, it's a good deal.

I need to vent a little here... :whistling:
As we get closer to the day where we need to be under the cap, all i can personally hope for is to see clarkson traded somewhere else. Im sure there will be a lot of people here who object to this but for the last three years i have watched this player and just sighed everytime he is on the ice. I took the trip to long island last night and could not take it anymore. clarkson has absolutely no hockey sense and last night he just plainly sucked. He slowed down josefson and zubs and just holds on to the puck for an incredible amount of time to just turn it over. Im just shocked that there is very little talk to trade clarkson instead of anyone else. Id rather have rolston langenbrunner salvs zubrus and even colin white over clarkson. Clarkson is the most inconsistent player on this team and he needs to be traded.

...yes clarkson brings some spunk and attitude to the ice but i think leblond and pelley can handle that aspect of the gm :cheers:

 

 

throw sestito or zharkov in there and theyll do ten times better than clarkson

 

 

zharkovs first season ten assists plus 2 in 40 gms, he will improve, thus my point that he will be better than clarkson, and i like sesito, he looks like a complete player i hope they give him another shot

 

Those are my thread highlights, especially about Leblond.  Oh and sestito being the complete player, that sir is a classic, although i was just as excited about Zharkov.

 

Oh well.....

The thing that impresses me is that many of the complaints about Clarkie were true. He's just such a hard worker he becomes a more complete player every season. By the time he retires he might have even mastered the nuances of skating.

I hated watching Clarkson play 2-3 years ago. I hated his contract. I've not seen many Devils games this year but those stats are unreal given what I thought I knew about him. I guess I was just totally wrong or a skating fetishist. There's more than one way to be productive in the NHL and Clarkson is clearly that.



Well it begins...

I don't particularly care for Clarkson, and I think we're going to see a lot of threads like this now that the man got paid. I think he got overpaid by about a million per year, and fans here will recognize that and make him the new NJDevs whipping boy.

With that said, the guy is big, can hit, and plays hard. He can be disruptive against certain lines and the Devils don't really have anyone else like that. He adds another dimension to the forward corps and I think regardless of his contract he is an asset to the team. I really hope he develops big time this year but I'm not holding my breath too much.

To say Sestito or Zharkov is better is just silly.




Alright I don't sound stupid!
