    The 10th or 11th best Centre in the league.

    • Absolutely, and was very overpaid, but let’s hope at least that this delay in getting him re-signed was about getting that contract reduced substantially. Still disappointing however, because this means that we don’t think enough of our young guys are ready to step up.

  2. 11th best center? Can you name all the starting centres let alone 2 backups?

    • Can’t get anything past Jordan!!!!

      In no particular order, Luc Brodeur-Jourdain, Jon Gott, Matthias Goossen, Cody Husband, Sean McEwen, Justin Sorensen, Ucambre Williams and Mike Filer. Those are the 8 starters from other teams, all of whom are better than Clark. Unequivocally. Then you can add Alex Mateas from Ottawa, who filed in for Gott when he was hurt to the mix and Brendon LaBatte, who instantly made the Riders O-Line better when he moved to Centre after Clark was hurt last season.

      By my count that’s 10! Depite having a better skill set than Clark, LaBatte isn’t technically a Centre, which allows for Clark’s 10th-11th ranking.

      Try to keep up Jordan.

  3. 10th or 11th best. love it and it might be true.

  4. Ehh but for. what ever reasons seems his team mates LOVE the guy. Could be that he is a serviceable player but great in the locker room ,sometimes teams need those kind of guys to win championships as well.
