Joe Pelletier:

No hockey player worked harder than Bobby Clarke, the tenacious leader of the Philadelphia Flyers for 15 enjoyable years. As a result, no one personified the Philadelphia Flyers better.

A wonderful talent blessed with great vision and playmaking skills, Clarke is better remembered for his physical talents - a relentless work ethic, a powerful leadership presence, and an unquenchable thirst to win complete with a willingness to do anything it took to capture victory.

Philadelphia continued to be a threat every season Clarke played for them. His on-ice leadership was inscrutable,
Legends Of Hockey:

It was no surprise when in the summer of 1972 the head coach of Team Canada, undrafted, named Bobby Clarke as one of the first candidates for the Summit Series against the USSR.
Really glad to have Clarke on the team. The guy is rightfully recognized as a great player. He may not have been the best offensive player available at #16 but I'll take his leadership and smarts for the game along with his decent offensive game.
