What I got out of Clarke's words was that he is really just pissed the NHL plays a skill game. He still wants to see rough and tumble 70's hockey. Big surprise. He was lashing out at those three teams because they all rely heavily on superstar talent, as opposed to Clarke who would prefer to beat those few superskill players senseless. I could be reading into a little much, but that was the sense I got.
Nope, I think you captured the correct flavor of his words. And that is Bobby Clarke, action before thought, but competitive to the core. He just wishes he had someone on his team now who could've broken Crosby's or Geno's ankle, to give his team a better chance.
