What a great take on why the Roenick deal took longer than expected.
Kings GM Dave Taylor showed interest. Taylor wanted to deal a player in return. Clarke replied he didn't have cap room. Clarke then called Phoenix GM Mike Barnett. Again, the holdup was players in return. Moving Roenick now seemed in jeopardy, although San Jose and also Columbus had jumped in by 9 p.m.
And here, many people were thinkning BC was stalling to get decent prospects in return. With the makeup of the NHL today, I definitely think Clarke did the right thing.
