Clarke is capable of making a horrible trade when desperate and even though we all like what Niittymaki shows that doesn't mean Clarke likes this situation.
But the Flyers aren't desperate for a goalie. It's not a similar situation at all. Oates was coveted by a number of teams, and was having an outstanding season. He was getting Oates to be a difference maker, whatever goalie is brought in (if one is brought in) wouldn't be a difference maker, just a stop gap until Esche is healthy.
