As no one from TLN was within earshot of this “animated” exchange (we don’t watch the games, let alone the practices), all we can really do is speculate as to what was discussed. Here’s our best, most educated guesses:

Ok, that last one is probably the most likely. 

This has gotta be tough for Clarkson. After your team loses 11 straight games, none of which are specifically your fault, you get sat. Then your team wins a game? And now you’re stuck on the outside looking in? It doesn’t matter what his Corsi % is, how much money he makes, or how much longer he’s signed for… that’s a bit of a raw deal for Clarkson. 

Does he fall a lot? Yes.

Is he bad? He’s certainly not great. 

Is he the problem? Far from it.

Does his contract suck? Absolutely.

Who’s fault is that? Nonis.
