New Arrivals with the Most to Prove in the 2013-14 NHL Season
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Clarkson eventually signed with Toronto, and that gave him a chance to play for his hometown team.

That sounds great in the summer when everyone is smiling and back-slapping, but that's all forgotten when the puck drops.

For Clarkson and nearly every other new arrival it's about production and nothing else.
