They could be why would you want two top prospects getting limited minutes instead of okay in legit minutes in the A? The coach had a very defined role for what a fourth liner is. And they didn't fit that role.

Th fact that there was nothing in the system that could be reached down for is a mark on Clark's drafting record. Does that mean he's been awful? Of course not. But I don't think he's been as great as some believe.

Again, I don't see how it's a Torts vs Clark thing.
