There's a lot of things that you can rip on David Clarkson for. He doesn't score a lot, he loses most of his fights, and his contract with the Leafs should be framed in the Hockey Hall of Fame to show future hockey managers what not to do. I feel bad about it too; by all accounts he's a very nice gentleman and he clearly wants to succeed.
But I need to add one more thing to the list - he might be the single least effective powerplay option in the entire league. The Leafs coaching staff has to, at some point between "three months ago" and "immediately", consider another option in his spot.

The above video was made in the year 2010, and yet it feels like nothing has changed. Except for the fact the Leafs started 1-2-1. Hell, if we want to be technical, the Leafs are still paying the player who makes a last-second cameo.
Needless to say, the Peter Horachek era hasn't started off the way that many had hoped. In fact, on the score sheet, it's been a disaster - the Leafs were just shut out for the third time in four games tonight.

The Leafs' latest goal scoring phenom, defenceman Roman Polak, will return to Scottrade Center for the first time since being traded by the St. Louis Blues to Toronto this past offseason.

It’s over halfway through the season, and the Leafs have proven to be what most expected - amazingly average. Great offence at the cost of some disastrous defence. The coaching change has helped, but it hasn’t immediately paid off, as most rational fans could have anticipated. But it hasn’t helped enough - again, as most rational fans could have anticipated.
