I do not think Clarke is exactly the person I would want DW to emulate.

For every Comrie deal there have been a couple of stinkers. I am pretty sure Booby was the guy who made Quebec/Colorado a Cup contender with the Lindros trade. He got rid of Cechmanek for nothing, then his response was to bring in Hackett and now Burke(whose last great playoff run was back with NJ in 1988). And there was the Oates trade.

However, DW does need to take more risks. When you make big trades, you also incur big risks. That is something DW has been not willing to do.
