That's true enough. However, I think he got the best of Sather on the Umberger front. He basically got the #16 pick in the '02 draft for pocket change (to the Flyers, not you and me). He got the Flyers a kid with good size and top-2 line talent for absolutely nothing.
And on the Lindros trade has forever tilted the scale into Clarke's favor. Plus, he was quick enough to pounce on Hitch, while Sather decided that a defensive team is not his ideal.
