I think that Clarke wasn't the GM at the time, when Philly traded for Lindros. He helped the Flyers in getting a good return from the Rangers for the Big E. For every crappy Clarke deal there's also a goodie. Look, how he got Pitkanen!

DW should look over the shoulder of Lamarillo (spell?), Burke or Taylor. Maybe the Thrashers would need somebody like a Vice GM and this position could go to former Sharks GM Dean Lombardi. I think that he's available. Lombardi made the Sharks a contender.
