And while you may poo poo it, that team was kind of a mess at forward at that point.
The title of the thread is The Flyers Mismanagement of Assets. People talk about the Denis Gauthier deal, well, wasn't that a Clarke deal as well? As for Nedved, yes, dealing Seidenberg for Nedved was a complete case of asset mismanagement. Nedved was to be brought in to provide offense, which he didn't. In 25 games with Phoenix, he had 11 points. And yet, he was expected to be the 2nd line center and back up to Forsberg if Forsberg went down with injury? Come on, the only problem with the forwards was that Primeau suffered another concussion and Clarke didn't find an adequate veteran winger to play with Carter and Umberger (and don't get me started on Niko Dimitrakos - he wasn't the player that line needed). Clarke badly mismanaged the team after the lockout.
