2) My only point is if Clarke had ever truly addressed the goaltending situation, I believe they would have won at least one Cup in the last decade.
Thats what I never understood about Clarke. He'd go out and get the exact type of forward or D-man his teams were in need of, but played it cheap when it came to goalies!? Awful....
