No surprise to see Niitymaki go down after a big win. Clarke would not want anyone hanging around that could make his Burke acquisition look unneccesary. Little is the man that ensures Burke plays them all. I really thought they would try to make a go of it with Niitymaki or grab a very cheap backup to hold them for 3-6 weeks. I could well be wrong, it is possible Niitymaki would not hold up and they would lose ground in the East. The Comrie trade to bring him in and the trade to ship him out was a little strange all around. Why was he brought here? The Flyers game is not really suited to Comrie so why trade Woywitka a 1st and 3rd? maybe it won't matter. He now has a new problem with his latest deal though. Eager has to be signed and he has the power knowing Clarke will be desperate to see some return on this deal especially if Burke is a non factor. I do like Radivojevic and they should be able to get plenty of use out of him for years to come.
