Like that didn't get knocked in by accident when everyone saw the puck laying there.

Clarkson's hysterical.

Let me needlessly hit this guy when Gleason already has him and free up this other man for a potential 2 on 1.

Clarkson is really bad.

Normally with mediocre-to-bad players I just don't care about them (Jonas Hoglund was an example).  I actually overtly dislike Clarkson.

It's amazing that he doesn't get treated by the fans at the ACC the way some other players have when they didn't live up to expectations.

Or even the media.

Even the media seems to be giving him a free pass.  Remember how awful Grabovski was last year?

I wish that JVR would stop trying that between the legs move beside the net.  It is a very low percentage option.

Regardless of how bad Clarkson's been the fact remains that he's a local guy who took less money to sign here in the offseason. That's going to buy someone a lot of time.

Yeah. I mean, he's ungood and he's also a major stumbling block in the way of the Leafs improving themselves. It's really a bad combination.

Probably as good a percentage as any other play from that position.  He's had good success with it.

Grabovski's +/- was brought up so many times.  Clarkson's a -5.  And has 10 points.

I agree.  It's unfortunate.

Is it really fair to say that he took less to sign here in the offseason, when the team that was offering more was Edmonton?

Clarkson is also on pace to score fewer goals and put up fewer points than Grabovski did last year...not in terms of pace, just raw numbers.

At least it has not taken them 15 mins to start playing

Aki Berg ,Larry Murphy ,Sergio Momesso etc...  Clarkson could make the list for the boo birds.
