OK, so one of my favorite Devils is David Clarkson. To me he is an all around player. Well, maybe not all-around because that sounds like he is skills-based. Maybe he's more of an "everything" player. He doesn't have great skills, (not yet) but he's got good enough skills. He's not a giant, but he's not small. He plays offense, defense, fights, and can spark the Devils at any time. He's certainly not a goon, but is definitely a warrior.
A few months back I posted asking for info on where to buy Devils jerseys (and thank you for your help—my friend bought from one of the sites you suggested). At the time I couldn't afford $170 for one of those jerseys with name sewn on, so I ended up buying an Elias jersey from someone on Craigslist for $40. Yeah it's a knock-off, but to me it's great and it's actually a decent quality knock off. (the guy emails me from time to time and still sells on Craigs and ebay, but only Elias jerseys in size 52XL- if interested I can give you his email or direct you to the sites he's selling on) ... But since buying that jersey I have been saving a few bucks here and there to some day get the real thing and guess who's jersey I would like. Clarkie of course.
My only hesitation is that if I buy a Clarkson jersey, I would hate for him to not re-sign with the Devils. According to capgeek, for 2010/2011 Clarkie will be a restricted free agent (RFA).
I don't see the Devils passing on him or using him in a trade, but you never know what Lou's master plan can be. Should I jump in now and get the jersey (or rather once I've scraped up the cash) or should I wait for him to be re-signed in the off-season? (yeah I know, a whole post dedicated to one of our third liners, but I think he is worthy of this post)
