I don't know how many of you guys love european players, and I don't really care. Clarke clearly didn't. I can't imagine him signing somebody like Zherdev. Zherdev irritates many of you because he exemplifies what Clarke used to avoid by any means: a higly skilled russian finesse player. And just by being here he marks the end of Clarke's era.

The era many of you are not ready to be done with.
That explains why one of the key trades Clarke made in the effort to win the Cup in '04 was trading for Zhamnov.

Seriously, get over yourself. You're talking out of your ass, referencing events almost 40 years old, and generally embarrassing yourself because you're so obviously biased.
