Agreed that scoring is our biggest issue, but we do have goal scoring centre Ryan Kesler on the way back within days.
Clowe has always been more of a mucker, a net crasher, and a setup guy, while Kesler is a shoot first centre. They could work together. Clowe-Kesler-Higgens?
I also feel that the Sedins look like they need a mix-up, which is why I advocated putting the cold Kassian with the cold Sedins to see if some of Kassian's early season fire could be reignited. Clowe is a right handed shot, but like you said, he's not much of a finisher. Do we really need another pass first guy on that line? Nope.
I'd take a chance on Clowe if the price was right, but I certainly wouldn't blow my wad on him. He would be a gamble at this point, and right now the Canucks need a sure thing 3rd line centre more than a gamble.
