I think you're confusing some issues here. Sharp was traded by Clarke. Sharp got opportunities in Chicago that he just wasn't going to get here. With the roster the Flyers had when Sharp was in town and knowing that Richards and Carter would be coming along, would you have given him the first line?

Chicago could give him that time, and could live with him at that spot while he learned the ropes. That's what you can do with a team with no expectations. This is one of those trades where you had to move the guy to not impede his career and give him some opportunities. Though nobody could foresee him playing with Kane and tearing it up like he has.
