    I see what you are doing. Sens logo. Wendel bashing.

    Just remember it’s all in good fun and treat whatever you catch the way you would like to be treated.

    I’m a Leaf fan. Born and Raised.

    I use the sens logo because I happen to look similar to Keanu Reeves and when I look at the sens logo all I see is Keanu looking at me.

    not Wendel bashing.

    just keeping it Real

    I don't think it was any secret that Clark didn't like to back check.
    He would routinely be the last guy back in the zone, people just missed this because you couldn't see it on tv.

    All good but here is another sample, I saw Wendel play he was the best Ive seen in a long time since Sittler, I'm talking players drafted by us. Wendels later stint with the Leafs traded and coming back in his later years was when he had a very bad back to where even the announcers were in awe that he could play, yes he wasn't the same Wendel he missed games, but he still was an effective player hurt. I have never in my life time seen an energetic goal scorer with a huge shot, good skater, crushing bodychecker, pound for pound one of the toughest fighters as well, complete package.

    So much wrong here. I don;t even know where to start.

    Wendel was injury prone before his career year in 1993-1994 after 8 Years with the Leafs. The Wendel after the trade is the Wendel before his career year.

    He's no Mark Messier, Claude Lemieux, etc.
    He doesn't belong in the Next tier either.
    Rick Tocchet, Cam Neely, Gary Roberts.
    Ne's not in the tier after that.
    Kirk Muller, Steve Thomas, Shayne Corson.

    He's in the next tier.

    Your perception is just another example of Fallacy of Romanticizing the Past.

    Wendel was a fine player, just not a very good one

    I think you are out to lunch. He scored more career goals than Corson, almost as many as Muller in 600 less games. More goals per game than Thomas, Tocchet and Gary Roberts. All while beating the snot out of pretty much everyone. Wendel was a beast.

    You guys don't watch any Hockey outside the Leafs.
    It shows.
    Wendel had great instances in small samples.
    But to compare those small sample sizes to full seasons is a joke.
    Corson was a tough guy to play against in Montreal. They were focus on defense. You may not remember that.
    To think Clark is better than Tocchet, Roberts and Thomas is pure insanity.

    you guys missed out on a lot of hockey.

    Clark better than Tocchet.
    lol that's a good one.
    What's next? You're gonna tell me he's better than Claude Lemieux.
    My god Clark isn't better than Cam Neely and you think he's better than Tocchet.
    lol.
    I have an autograph Clark Jersey to sell you.
    It's for $35,000.00
    It's a bargain.

    they were fun to watch.
    iam a die hard leaf but the old era was better

    we have a **** load more talent on this team but man if they aren't skating and scoring or creating chances they are incredibly boring.

    Never said he was better than Tocchet, just stated the fact that he put up very good number in comparison. Either way, not getting into it with someone who thinks they are Keanu Reeves.

    Agreed one season 46 goals in 64 games, he had one of the best wrist and slap shot snipes in the league. This guy is just talking through his hat
