FWIW, the same scout who lobbied for the Flyers to draft Bobby Clarke did the same with Ron Hextall. His name was Gerry Melynk. Coincidentally, the Flyers got him as a player in a trade from St. Louis after their first season but he was diagnosed with heart problems and never played for the team. He was given a job as a scout and that is why he suggested drafting Clarke (diabetes) and Hextall (demeanor, personailty) both of whom were passed by other teams for different reasons.
You win the thread again, MSE.
