I don't really understand it from Philly's standpoint, either. Clowe would be an awesome Flyer, but he seems a bit redundant. Hartnell plays a similar game. I could see Clowe as a replacement for Knuble, but he will assuredly make more than Knuble and will command assets in return. If the Flyers are able to clear a forward's salary (Lupul and/or Briere), then I could see this being a good move, but I don't think it will happen.

Gagne - Richards - Clowe
Hartnell - Carter - Giroux

Those lines look great, but they obviously assume the Flyers trade both Lupul and Briere and let Knuble walk.
