Let me start off by saying yes, I know there are a few Clarkson threads right now, but from what I have seen, they seem to all be bashing Clarkson. I also want to say that the title is not supposed to sound sarcastic, I actually mean that; thank you David Clarkson.
I now want to ask everybody on this board to try and keep this thread as more of the positive Clarkson thread and keep the negativity to the other ones, but if you can't, well I can't stop you from expressing your opinions.
Like this personal opinion for example; for me, David Clarkson has earned every penny of his contract now. No he wasn't brought in to fight and protect people, but when your enforcer is already in the box and nobody else even comes close to the size or physicality of John Scott.
This is another personal opinion, but I would rather be without David Clarkson for 10 games because of a suspension, than be without Phil Kessel indefinitely with a concussion. I mean which would all of you prefer.
I'm not sure if this is all I wanted to say, can't remember, but I will leave it at that for now.
