@leafsinsix @4evrblue @Savo43 @quintensmids @dlb eh LOL, Burke gets 100% of the credit if you're talking about who built the playoff team last year, even if he did hire randy "jerkoff" carlyle

@dlb eh @quintensmids if you DOUBT that Nonis would accept anything less than a king's ransom (implying that you believe that he would only settle for a king's ransom), you have too much faith in Nonis.
Personally I believe that's the only way we should trade Dion, but doubt Nonis is smart enough to realize that.
People doubting that the Leafs would trade Phaneuf without getting a king's ransom have too much faith in Nonis IMO.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk im just saying "you have to overpay" is probably not the smartest motto for a gm to live by.. Possibly on a true core piece like a 1c or 1d, but for a 2nd/3rd line winger, I dont think overpaying is the smartest.

@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk ottawa didn't have to overpay to get mac...
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk im arguing that there is no quantifiable 2M, 5 year worth difference between the two players.
@canuckintheuk @quintensmids @GeorgeCastanza corsi takes that into account man. It takes into account the quality of your teammates, your competition, and the performance of your team when youre on the bench.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk stats like goals and assists should be taken with a grain of salt, as they result from one play, but corsi is consistently being tracked all game. and these stats show that when clarke is on the ice, the puck tends to drift toward the other team's end.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk if he doesn't keep possession for long why do his stats say that is EXACTLY what he does, with great consistency?
@canuckintheuk @quintensmids @GeorgeCastanza just because some people would rather overpay for grit, doesn't make it the right choice.
@canuckintheuk @GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids well, when he's being "invisible", he's still one of the league's best at driving the play into the other team's end.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk who's to say Mac didn't play a role those years. Also, you forget that Kuly's offense was nowhere to be seen the next season. Also, I believe Clarkson's linemates over the last 2 years have been Elias/Henrique, and I have no idea who he played with primarily the season before that.
@canuckintheuk @quintensmids @GeorgeCastanza if you believe everything the media tells you and totally trust their opinion, our conversation is over.
@canuckintheuk @GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids I'm not even arguing Mac is a better player than Clarkson, I think they're about equal, and that MAYBE clarkson is very slightly better than Mac A. However, there is no reasonable way you can rationalize paying him 2M more over 5 more years than Mac A
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk yet he still produced more ppg than clarkson over that time.. with similar possession numbers. so basically Mac playing thru injuries is better than Clarkson playing healthy.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk in the last 3 years, Mac has averaged less than 7 games injured. Safe to say he isn't at all an injury risk.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk
Obviously, you have to look at CorsiRel and CorsiRel QoC, not to mention Ozone start and finish %, because Mac played on one of the worst while DC played on the third best possession teams. As you can see, they're essentially equal players in terms of possession, with a slight edge to Mac on offensive skill, and an edge to Clarkson in grit, IMO.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk will do.
@Tim Horton @quintensmids @Walter_White @Cloud09 yup, they do share some value, but definitely not 2M and 5 years more value.
@GeorgeCastanza @quintensmids @canuckintheuk wow, what a mature way to continue a debate. At least there are facts (stats) to back up my argument. And I don't know what you mean by puck heavy but if you mean puck possession, he is one of the league's best puck possession players.
