    Nice question Anthony, I’m sure the “character” stuff in Reid’s response will get the analytics folks sharpening their pitchforks.

    Regarding Anthony’s question about intangibles….I would have singled out Clarkson rather than Bozak.  I think Bozak has proven to be worth every penny of his contract (and then some as it will be a steal of a deal for years to come).  I’m not certain Clarkson will be viewed in the same manner or that his intangibles help make up for his lack of production.  Sure, he scraps now and then (nothing major though)….he’s a team guy and all…..but what else are his intangibles??  I’m hoping that once he settles in and plays regularly with regular linemates that things will pick up for him.  The suspensions and injuries certainly have not helped his cause.  Hoping to see his intangibles put to work for the playoffs.

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan  He tries to carry the puck through sticks eh? Friggin annoying. Once he starts using his teammates off the rush, he’ll start to generate a groove in the oppositions zone. Because he makes such dumb moves in the neutral zone and at the oppositions blueline though, he doesn’t have any confidence with the puck when he finally has it in the oppositions zone. Dude needs a hell of a offseason, or he needs to wake up in practice before he starts on the 4th line. Frustrating fackkk!!

    There have been a lot of extenuating circumstances where Clarkson is concerned (right from the get go).  I’m hoping things will level out though….and his “intangibles” will start to kick in.
