Out of everything, I think the insistence that Clarkson stay on the PP, despite not contributing there, bugs me more than any of the other decisions with it. Splitting up Franson and Phaneuf is a smart move, though - assuming they stick with it and actually set things up so both can take advantage of their shots via one-timers.
I know people have been sharing that link Mirtle posted showing the Leafs P/60 on the PP. Taking a different look at that, of the 165 forwards who have played at least 200 minutes on the powerplay in the past 2 seasons, Clarkson ranks 160th in points per 60 minutes. That's 7 powerplay points in 108 games as a Leaf.
And he's dead-last in assists per 60 minutes with just 1 powerplay assist in 108 games.
