I don't think so. Clarke realized his potential mistakes on that front a LOOOONG time ago. Did you see the last Flyers draft? Did you see all the nifty little Swiss leaguer free agent types he brought over? If anything, he's going to swing too hard the other way in his ongoing effort to overcompensate. It's true, teams do have more room for smaller, faster, more talented players now. And he'll get a good player out of Giroux and some of the other kids he drafted eventually. But the team that lost hideously last night wasn't losing purely because of slow-footed behometh dmen or anything. There was just Hatcher. The Flyers have lost a lot of size and/or physicality recently with Primeau, Handzus, Roenick, and Rathje out... they don't have too much farther to go in that direction...
