He was killed for the Carter pick at the time, yet now that looks like a steal. Richards has looked like a steal. The picks of Rosy and Potulny now look like uncoered gems. Like Clarke or not, he drafts as well as any other team in the league.
not bashing bobby, but please give some credit to the scouts as well. Flyers have one of the best scouting groups in the league. About Potulny, I love the kid too, but let's not lose our heads over him, NCAA is a long ways from the NHL.
