I think Clarke does a great job as GM, but the one area where he is really weak as a GM is in accquiring quality talent in net. Even when he has it drop out of the sky into his lap, he rarely recognizes and promotes it.

prediction: one of Nittymaki or Malek is traded this off season. Flyers sign Kolzig or Burke.
We have our goalie, his name is Robert Esche. Take a look, he's not doing to shabby.

Let Niittymaki spend next year playing another 55 games for the Phantoms, and then have him move up to the Flyers the following year.

If someone wants to deal for Malek, make the deal, but I doubt you'll see too much interest.

Clarke was correct in not giving Malek a one-way deal. If he came over and played well the job would have been his, ala Cechmanek 4 years ago.
