The hatred of Clarke is no more than a bandwagon thing. A lot of people dislike Bobby Clarke but they are too bull-headed to see all the good he has done for the Flyers. He has had some bad trades but has definitely made up for it with some other deals.
Adam Oates for Oullet and some picks
Bag of Pucks for Amonte
Handzus and Esche for Boucher
Langkow for 1st Rounder (Carter) and a 2nd
Fedotenko and picks for a future Norris candidate
And im not even talking about his drafting skills we have had good picks in Gagne, Williams, Oullet, Woywitka, Carter, and Richards who all look like better players then where they were picked. Clarkes biggest fault is his PR. He is a complete moron when it comes to that and if I was Snider I would lock him in a room and have somebody else do the talking for him. He consistently builds a contender and does the best he can. The Adam Oates trade looked like a final step to a stanley cup team when he traded for the NHL's leader in assists. Do you guys think the guy with the most assists on a playoff team would come cheaply.
Clarke is by far not one of the worst GMs and even though I have followed him for years and completely biased towards him I consider him to be a top GM in this league and wouldn't choose anyone else to replace him.
